Pleasing God – Prayer for January 13. Many Christians think so much about what the people around them say about them; it’s not really about what they say but about what God is saying about you.
Bible Verse for Today
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.” (1 John 2:15)
Many people, especially Christians, have missed out on the plans of God for their lives simply because they choose to love the world and please the world instead of pleasing God who can make things good.

As Christians, we are meant to obey the words of the Lord and follow them. Pleasing the Lord starts by having faith in him. The book of Hebrews made it known that without faith, it is impossible to please God. This means that if there is no faith in God, there will be no reason to obey and follow his will.
Anyone who does not believe in God will surely do the things of the world. Therefore, this is the time to break anything causing you to please the world, not God.
Pleasing God attracts a whole lot of blessings and promises of God. In whatever we do, we must learn to acknowledge the name of the Lord; we must make his name known to the world. Proverbs 3:6 “In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
Anything you do, you are a symbol of change that the world needs, then you have gone beyond doing what pleases people. You may not know this, but people are looking forward to you to help them get up and join you in the righteous act.
The worst thing that will happen to you as a Christian is to follow people’s words or their thoughts concerning you, not God’s, and then leave the ones that need to be saved through you to remain the same. Tell God today to help you to do things that will please him alone.
Pleasing God Prayer for Today
Dear Lord, if I am doing anything against your will and thought for my life, help me to stop them and focus on how to please you alone. I desire to please you alone; I want to stop pleasing the world; I don’t want to go by their words concerning my life anymore. Therefore, help me stick to you alone and do everything according to your will today. Amen.
