"If it pleases the King, may I....."
How often do we approach God and approach life with the question, "does this please God", or "what is your pleasure", towards God? We pray to get out of things, to get things, to find things; all for our pleasure. The Bible does teach that God does want to bestow good onto His children and we thank God for all things. But sometimes what is missing in us is that we neglect to live our lives worshipfuly, under God's Kingship, reverentially asking God what He wants or what would please Him the most in a situation.
