Why are people wrong? Mk 12:24 Jesus said to them, Is this not the reason you are wrong, because you know neither the Scriptures nor the power of God?
Count the way to wisdom, for wisdom is pleasure, and obedience is peace.God is infinite, salvation is simple, and knowledge is easy.

Seven Things God Takes Pleasure In

#51 Seven Things God Takes Pleasure In

I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.

Count your way to wisdom in number fifty-one of this series, Seven Things God Takes Pleasure In.

One of the most active pursuits of every Christian is to find the will of God. There is a comfort in knowing that your Kingdom work is producing fruit, the lost are turning to God, the believer is growing in knowledge, and children are maturing in faith. These are the goals, but how do you first know what pleases God. It is then that you know the Holy Spirit is prospering your work. The Bible does tell us things that God takes pleasure in. Here are seven times when the scriptures use the phrase, “His good pleasure”, or “the Lord takes pleasure in”.

Seven Things God Takes Pleasure In:

  1. Your salvation
  2. All believers
  3. Ministry work
  4. The willingness to work
  5. Those who fear Him
  6. Living an upright life
  7. Giving eternity to all Christians

The Bible speaks many times of joy and rejoicing. God wants joy in faith and Kingdom work, and as in all things of faith and Kingdom work, God has made it both simple and a joy to be in His will. Starting with salvation and ending in eternity, it pleases God that you are a believer with a heart for Kingdom work, and God is pleased to receive you in heaven.

It is my prayer that many will count their way to wisdom through this series and find the peace that surpasses all understanding.

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

Ps 149:4 For the Lord takes pleasure in his people; he adorns the humble with salvation.

Php 2:13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

Ec 2:10 And whatever my eyes desired I did not keep from them. I kept my heart from no pleasure, for my heart found pleasure in all my toil, and this was my reward for all my toil.

Ps 147:11 but the Lord takes pleasure in those who fear him, in those who hope in his steadfast love.

1 Ch 29:17 I know, my God, that you test the heart and have pleasure in uprightness. In the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen your people, who are present here, offering freely and joyously to you.

Ps 16:11 You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
