S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Thessalonians 2:4
On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts.
Paul the Apostle affirmed his ministry to this young church in Thessalonica. He had reminded them earlier of the hard work in the face of impossible odds that he and his associates had led among them. Not only that, but he reminded them that they had had fabulous results with no impure motives or trickery on their part. The Apostle said, “We weren’t “Pleasers of Men,” instead, we only wanted to be … ‘God Pleasers!’”
All of us must check our Motives and our Agenda daily. The question must always be, “Is our mandate a heavenly one, and are our motives pure?” Never, ever will EVERYONE approve of your actions, whether you’re wrong or right. Consequently, it’s important that you and I operate to please the Lord. Men and women will judge you while they’re shaking your hand with a smile. People refuse you, abuse you, and use you. However, I prophesy over you today that you will have incredible results in the face of “Impossible Challenge.” There is one condition; this will come to pass only if You are … “A God PLEASER!”
This AM I dedicate myself to forever be “A God PLEASER!” I love people, but I will live to worship You alone. Amen
