Whenever something negative happens to me, I often moan and groan. “Woe is me!” “God, why is this happening?” It takes me a bit to realize that it isn’t about me. My life needs to bring pleasure to God. I am not to seek my happiness or what I want. Instead, I am to desire what God wants and value what God values. Of course, this usually ends in my joy and fulfillment too, but not always. I’m not the point. The pleasure and glory of God are.
Philippians 2:13: “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.”
