WHAT GOD DESIRES!

Hosea 6:6 – Devotional

Hosea 6:6

“For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice;
and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.”

When I pause to consider the things that might please God, I fear that I am adversely influenced by what would please me. The only way to avoid that erroneous conclusion is to spend time in God’s precious Word and allow the Word to reveal what is pleasing in His sight.

I have discovered that what pleases God is for us to make every effort to be like Him as much as possible. I realize that is not possible, but at least it indicates to Him that we are making an effort.

So how do we go about finding what is pleasing to God? It is in spending time in our Bible. It has always caused me concern that believers fail to spend time in a study of the Bible. There are excuses galore for failing to read the Bible, but when we are honest with God our excuses are puny – at best!

God wants us and He wants all of us! We may feel that we have little to offer Him, but in the words of a song we used to sing, “Little is much when God is in it!” God wants us to spend time with Him – – let’s do it!

Blessings dear hearts! Walk with God today and be a blessing.
