God’s Pleasure

“Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit.” (Eph. 5:17-18)

“For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.” (Ps. 149:4)

“…That Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height - to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.” (Eph. 3:17-19)

It is important to realize that your pleasure is God’s pleasure, because you are God’s delight. His goal is your heart… to dwell there and to allow His love to find its deepest root system there! He loves you with an unconditional love and all of His thoughts toward you are good (Jer. 29:11). You can’t live beyond God’s knowledge and you can’t hide from His Presence… He will never leave you and He will always be found waiting for you (Isa. 30:18).

7 Things That Bring Pleasure to God:

1. The Prosperity of His People:

  • (Psalm 35:27) Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant. (Amplified Version)

2. Ministers Doing His Will:

  • (Psalm 103:21) Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, all you His hosts, you His ministers who do His pleasure. (Amplified Version)

3. Men and Women that Fear Him:

  • (Psalm 147:11) The Lord takes pleasure in those who reverently and worshipfully fear Him, in those who hope in His mercy and loving-kindness. (Amplified Version)

4. His People Walking by Faith:

  • (Hebrews 11:1-2) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony.

5. Giving His Kingdom To His Children:

  • (Luke 12:32) Do not be seized with alarm and struck with fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom! (Amplified Version)

6. Saints Enjoying God’s Fullness:

  • (Ephesians 1:5) For He foreordained us (destined us, planned in love for us) to be adopted (revealed) as His own children through Jesus Christ, in accordance with the purpose of His will [ because it pleased Him and was His kind intent (Amplified Version)
  • (Ephesians 1:9) Making known to us the mystery (secret) of His will (of His plan, of His purpose). [And it is this:] In accordance with His good pleasure (His merciful intention) which He had previously purposed and set forth in Him, (Amplified Version)

7. Giving People The Desires of Their Heart:

  • (Philippians 2:13) [Not in your own strength] for it is God Who is all the while effectually at work in you [energizing and creating in you the power and desire], both to will and to work for His good pleasure and satisfaction and delight. (Amplified Version)
  • (2 Thessalonians 1:11) With this in view we constantly pray for you, that our God may deem and count you worthy of [your] calling and [His] every gracious purpose of goodness, and with power may complete in [your] every particular work of faith (faith which is that leaning of the whole human personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness). (Amplified Version)

Remain Fearless!

“Do not fear, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” (Lk. 12:32)

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim. 1:7)

Fear Not! That’s not just my thought – its the exhortation of God’s Word! And why? Because it is Your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom… to make sure you are walking in Kingdom Promises and Kingdom Favor all the days of your life. We must break the spirit of fear and free ourselves from the lies that the devil throws at our minds. Fear is nothing more than false evidence appearing real… its the stuff of death. But God offers a reality that carries the Blessing of Life!

Maintaining a fearless heart… comes from tapping into a Kingdom Identity!

  • …its like David looking into the eyes of Goliath and claiming victory over every giant in the land!
  • …its like Daniel standing in the midst of a kneeling crowd declaring a firm conviction that God will not be mocked!
  • …its like the Apostles in the Early Church praying, ” Now Lord, look upon the threats and give us more boldness to speak Your Word!”

Stir Up Your Anointing to Love!

In the scientific world, fear carries the lowest frequency and love carries the highest… in other words, fear generates the least amount of energy while love creates the most. Love creates atmospheres of health, strength, vitality and positive outcomes while fear creates atmospheres of depressions, unbelief, sickness, and negative outcomes.

Jesus clearly taught us to “Fear Not”. The Apostle Paul stated, “faith works by love” (Gal. 5:6). No wonder Jesus left us with only 2 commandments: to Love God and to love others as ourselves. All the commandments are fulfilled in this… that you love one another.

The Time is Now!

Examine your heart and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas of fear. Repent from fear, turn away from it, renounce it wherever it shows up in your life – and receive love in its place. When you realize that God loves you and will always do what is good for you, it immediately removes the fear and releases faith that works through love.

I want to challenge you… in fact I want to feel the challenge personally – to awaken love like never before. Believers, let us create a love atmosphere in our life for 2016.

Recognize the benefits of loving those who persecute you and mistreat you. Begin to renounce any specific fear that you identify and replace it with a Kingdom Identity – love thoughts… and faith decrees from the “Love Chapter” (1 Cor. 13). Let’s agree together for complete deliverance and awakening of a love walk, filled with faith for 2016. You will be delivered from fear and transformed by love. Its the greatest power in the universe!

Let’s believe the Bible… “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.” (1 Jn. 4:18)
