Knowing the Pleasure of God

“Jenny, I believe God made me for a purpose.

He also made me fast. And when I run, I feel his pleasure.”

– Eric Liddell in Chariots of Fire

What is the pleasure of God? What is it like?

The pleasure of God is a feeling of contentment, of satisfaction with oneself, that you are doing what you were meant to, what you were prepared for. It is a feeling of inexpressible joy, of knowing that God is the Lord and is worthy of all worship. It is a feeling that life cannot get any better, that you have reached the epitome of everything this world can offer.

And you live for it, the pleasure of God. You strive for it, every moment of your life.

For one day you will feel it, and you will know that you were destined for something; you were prepared for such a time as this.
