Scripture: Mark 1:11 And a voice came from heaven: “You are my son, whom I love, with you I am well pleased.”
Observation: There are two statements that God can say of me I am his child and that He loves me. I wish I could say He is pleased with me, but I know that is where I fall short. Each day I fall short of doing what He desires and get caught up in this world. I try harder to please the people around me then pleasing God.
Application: To realize whatever I do should be done in a way that is pleasing to God. I know how and what to do it’s just doing it that’s hard for me. I need to be a God pleaser instead of a man pleaser.
Prayer: Lord may I live the rest of my life in a way that when it’s time for me to come home I may hear you say, “this is my child whom I’m well pleased.”
