"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 He does whatever He pleases! -pink

[b]He does whatever He pleases![/b]

(Arthur Pink, "The Attributes of God")

"He does whatever He pleases!" Job 23:13

Ah, my reader, the God of Scripture is no make-believe
monarch, no mere imaginary sovereign; but King of kings,
and Lord of lords! To countless thousands, even among
those professing to be Christians, the God of the
Scriptures is quite unknown.

The god of this twentieth century no more resembles
the Supreme Sovereign of Holy Writ, than does the
dim flickering of a candle, the glory of the midday sun!
The god who is now talked about in the average pulpit,
spoken of in the ordinary Sunday School, mentioned in
much of the religious literature of the day, and preached
in most of the so-called Bible conferences, is the figment of
human imagination, an invention of mushy sentimentality!

The heathen outside of the pale of Christendom form gods
out of wood and stone; while the millions of heathen inside
Christendom manufacture a god out of their own carnal
mind! In reality, they are but atheists, for there is no other
possible alternative between an absolutely supreme God,
and no God at all. A god whose will is resisted, whose
designs are frustrated, whose purpose is checkmated,
possesses no title to Deity; and so far from being a fit
object of worship, merits nothing but contempt!

"Our God is in heaven and does whatever He pleases."
Psalm 115:3

"I know that You can do anything, and no plan of
Yours can be thwarted." Job 42:2
"The Lord does whatever He pleases in heaven and
on earth, in the seas and all the depths." Psalm 135:6

"Hallelujah! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns!"
Revelation 19:6

Ah, God's pleasure!! In this pleasure-centered culture, many people even Christians labor their lives around pleasure, how little is the pleasure of God ever noticed or attended to..

From the God of Abraham to the Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, the same God has always ordained all according to His good pleasure. I love this, you hear people say "..too bad, I do this cuz its makes me happy.."

What about God's pleasure?

Isaiah 46:10
Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and [b]I will do all my pleasure:[/b]

Luke 12:32
Fear not, little flock; for it is [b]your Father's good pleasure[/b] to give you the kingdom.

Ephesians 1:5
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, [b]according to the good pleasure [/b]of his will,

Phil 2:13
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and [b]to do of his good pleasure.[/b]

2 Thessalonians 1:11
Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count you worthy of this calling, and [b]fulfil all the good pleasure of His goodness[/b], and the work of

[b]Revelation 4:11
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and [i]for thy pleasure [/i]they are and were created.

Lord, how selfish of me, always forgetting this!
