Day 9 – WHAT MAKES GOD SMILE? — 40 Days Purpose Driven Life Journey by Rick Warren


The Lord is pleased with those who worship Him and trust is love – Psalm 147: 11

You may feel that the only time God is pleased with you is when you’re doing “spiritual” activities – like reading the bible, attending church, praying, or sharing your faith, and you may think God is unconcerned about the other parts of your life. Actually, God enjoys watching every detail of your life, whether you are working, playing, resting, or eating. He doesn’t miss a single move you make. The bible tells us, “ The steps of the godly are directed by the Lord. He delights in every detail of their lives” (Psalm 37: 23).

Every human activity, except sin, can be done for God’s pleasure if you do it with an attitude of praise. You can wash dishes, repair a machine, sell a product, write a computer program, grow a crop, and raise a family for the glory of God.

Like a proud parent, God especially enjoys watching you use the talents and abilities He has given you. God intentionally gifted us differently for His enjoyment. He has made some to be athletic, and some to be analytical. You may be gifted at mechanics or mathematics or music or a thousand other skills. All these abilities can bring a smile to God’s face.
