Devotional Reflection Focused on Pleasing Him
Whether Living Life or Writing Stories
In the halls of heaven, cherubim, seraphim, and angels surround Him. In Psalm 103:20-21 we read, “Bless the Lord, you His angels, who excel in strength, who do His word, heeding the voice of His word. Bless the Lord, all you His hosts, you ministers of His, who do His pleasure.” Although these verses are talking about angels serving the Lord and living for His pleasure, there is a valid thought to be drawn from and applied to us as well.
Angels are ministers of His, and we too are ministers of His. Ephesians 4:12 speaks of “the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” Saints refers to all believers. All believers are ministers of His. Angels minister for His pleasure, rather than their pleasure, and we too should minister for His pleasure rather than our own pleasure.
In Colossians 1:10 Paul prays that the believers would be enabled to “walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God.”
Reach for the Heights! Focus on pleasing Him! Whether living life or writing stories, my purpose is His pleasure. What about you? Are you living for His pleasure or your own?
