Chapter Eight: Planned For God’s Pleasure

You created everything, and it is for Your pleasure that they exist and were created ~ Revelation 4:11 (NLT)

  • Mind-blowing Fact: God finds me delightful and important. I exist for His pleasure! So why should I have low self-esteem when God considers me valuable enough to want to spend eternity with me? Why should I wait for validation from someone before I feel significant when God already validated me? This is the sole basis for my self worth: God’s complete interest in me… His relentless love for me… ๐Ÿ’œ
  • Worship is NOT for my benefit! I was just smiling as I read this part. There’s this church in my neighbourhood where the singers sing off key and I find myself critiquing and evaluating ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜€. But I usually have to remind myself (and my partner in critiquing, Mr G ๐Ÿ˜) that they are doing the best they can and if they are worshipping God sincerely, then He accepts it and that’s what really matters๐Ÿคท
  • Work becomes worship when I dedicate it to God and perform it with an awareness of His presence. I must do everything as unto the Lord… An act (and attitude) of worship!
