Know that wisdom is such to your soul; if you find it, there will be a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Proverbs 24:14
Jesus has made us happy by dying for our sins and bridging the separation that our sins had created between us and God (Isaiah 59:1-2), so we should remember that Jesus is moved to happiness every time He sees that you and I appreciate what He has done for us.
Here are 3 ways to make God happy:
Thank God always:
It’s like us, when we do something to our loved ones, we usually do it to make them happy, and in return, when that someone acknowledge our effort by saying thank you, our happiness would be so big that our hearts becomes heavy because of that happiness we felt in us. Now God would be very happy if we thank Him for everything He has done for us. The most important thing that we should be thanking of is that He gave us His only son so that we will be saved. Let’s consider thanking Him every day of our lives, thank Him in prayer, in praise and worship songs, even going to Sunday service. God is not asking much for us; just say thank you is enough for Him to make Him smile.
Doing Good to Others:
When you do something good, God would be so proud of you. God is commanding us to do well to others, even in our worst enemy; we should be good and love them. During the time when Jesus came to earth, He shows us how He treated people, He is kind even to those unkind to Him, He helps the needy, He forgave those people who are unforgivable, He love those who are unlovable, He is compassionate , he had a heart of mercy, being good, patient, and caring. All the characteristic Jesus is showing us, which should be our example. We should learn to do them to make our God happy.
Always Seek Him:
The idea is that when we draw near to God, He reveals Himself to us. God does not hide Himself from the seeking heart. “But if from there you seek the LORD your God, you will find him if you look for him with all your heart and with all your soul.” (Deuteronomy 4:29) “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:13) God will be happier if we will seek Him until we can find Him. Digging more into the word of God will help us know more about Him. Talking to Him in prayer every day will make us to be closer to Him. Never stop seeking Him, because we still have a lot of things, character to learn from. Just like a friend, we become best friends when we know the a lot more things about them. God wants us to be His friends, not just friends but more of that. God will be happy if we become closer and closer to Him.
