October 9–What God Wants

For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God rather than burnt offerings. Hosea 6:6

God wants our relationships with others to be filled with mercy…and the continual offering of grace to others just as our LORD continually offers His mercy and grace to us. To do our “religious things”—even if those things are good and right things to do, does us no good—when it comes to bringing joy to our God—if we lack true love and mercy towards the people in our life.

God wants our relationship with Him to be acknowledged…to be proclaimed. First, to our God Himself, and, then, to our own heads and hearts—so that we will enjoy God’s intimate presence, yield to God’s righteous rule and be held in God’s unfailing love.  

What God wants…is ALL for our very best!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
