The LORD loves the choices that His people make to glorify Him. He is pleased with all that they do to bring Him honor. When His people, though fallen, follow Him by exhibiting His righteousness as He has called, the LORD is pleased. When they rely on His leading to execute perfect justice, the LORD is pleased. For though God has created all people, though He has fashioned each and every human heart to his liking, not all people are truly His own. Not all please Him.
In the beginning of time, God created the heavens and the earth. He formed His people and breathed His own breath of life within them. But each crafted heart would need to choose to have the LORD as its God, would need to decide whether or not to follow Him. And so, even now, God examines the works that the people perform, since not everything His creation does brings Him good pleasure. The Creator of all people looks upon what He has designed, longing that all would respond favorably to His unfailing love.
Do your works reflect that which pleases our Creator God? It is so easy to rest in the truth that we are all God’s creation. But this fact is not what assures us our eternity with Him. We must remember that while all creation was created very good, people were still left with the choice to remain good with God. Look around at all that He has made! Gaze upon the craftmanship that His voice spoke into existence and remember that He is the One Who sustains it all! As He examines what You do for His glory, as You respond in obedience to His leading and guidance, may He be pleased.
