Pleasing Me Will Bring You Great Joy

December 13, 2017

“A plan is unfolding that you cannot clearly see. If you could see it as I do, you would still hurt, but you would not lose hope. You would gladly remain faithful to Me in the middle of the worst suffering. I guarantee you the power to please Me, not to have a good time. But pleasing Me will bring you great joy.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Shattered Dreams, “Jesus Speaks,” Page 43

Questions for Reflection:
• During this season of Advent, consider the lives of those living under Roman conquest in the months before Jesus was born.
• How might their perspective on their joys and heartaches have been impacted had they known the redemption that God was working through His Son?
• Since we have the same promise that God is weaving redemption in our current joys and struggles, take some time today to open your heart to the Spirit’s work and the hope that His plan is moving forward, for good.
