One of the most foundational truths I have come to know about God is that “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.” What that means is that God desires to be made much of by us (to be glorified or honoured) but that this is done by us finding the deepest JOY and satisfaction in him. Not dry begrudging religiosity but deep and profound joy. It is not that we desire too much pleasure and need to beat ourselves into submission and desire less. We do not desire pleasure enough because if we did, we would turn to the source of all pleasure.. God himself.
He is not far away. He desires us to desire Him.. “to taste and see that the Lord is good.”
I have been on this website thousands of times for the scripture and the resources it gives me to whet my appetite and learn about our beautiful God and Saviour. Now it is in the process of being translated all into Farsi. Have a click and let me know what whets your appetite or turns over your thoughts about God to being a joy bringer.
