It rose in my mind like and just kind of came to me recently. But my ultimate pleasure in life is glorifying God. When I read scripture. When I pray. And when I obey God more with each thought and action that pleases Him, I’m happy and at peace. What a great feeling that is, isn’t it? It’s something all of us want, but it seems so hard to get at times. With all the difficult circumstances and bad things that we endure. But you know what. It doesn’t matter what trouble goes on in my life now or what will happen in my life in the future. Or what trouble goes on in your life now or in the future.
Even if God sets our life up for difficulty of the likes of Apostle Paul enduring being beaten and jailed, or tragedy of the likes of Stephen being stoned to death, I believe and trust God. I just want His will to be fulfilled. When I fulfill that will in whatever way it’s supposed to be done through my obedience to the Word, and when I continually encourage others to obey God’s Word more, I’m good.
And really, I think this can be true for all of us. Yes, even you reading this right now. As you sit in whatever hard times you’re in. When you dedicate yourself completely to God and His Word daily and as consistently as possible in everything you think and do, that is the ultimate pleasure. Every moment you live can be okay. An ultimate pleasure beyond any desire you could ever receive in your life.
