Revelation 4:11

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created. KJV

All that God created were created to give Him pleasure, pleasing God is pivotal in giving God pleasure.

The Christian life is essentially spiritual. The doctrine that separates spirituality from a Christian's everyday life is faulty. We are created to represent God wherever we find ourselves, whether in the Church or outside the Church, we are to please God in everything we do.

Note that whenever you're not in the spirit, you're actually in the flesh and the flesh cannot please God (see Rom 8:8).

The way to live to please God is to walk in the spirit and not in the flesh. Walking in the spirit means your spiritual life and relationship with God always has more priority to you.

One of the ways to know if you are walking is the spirit is to check your priorities; what are the most important things to you, if they are things of this world, it means your affection has been set on the things of this world, but if they are things that primarily please God, your affection is set on the things of God and this is the key to walking in the spirit.

Go into today knowing that living to please God involves pleasing God in everything (your business, your work, your family etc.).

1 Corinthians 10:31: Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. KJV

Prayer: thank you father for creating me to give you glory, help me to always live in this reality in Jesus' name. Amen
