DCLM Sincere Milk 3 April 2023 — What the lord loves

DCLM Sincere Milk  3 April 2023 Devotional by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — What the lord loves



1Rejoice in the LORD, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright.

2Praise the LORD with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings.

3Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.

4For the word of the LORD is right; and all his works are done in truth.

5He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.

KEY VERSE: “He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.” Psalms 33:5


David was a very close friend of God. He knew so much about his friend. God, speaking about him could say: “… I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart …” (Acts 13:22) One important truth about enduring friendship is that, friends should take time to study and know what each other loves or hates. You will then avoid what your friend hates and do and teach others to do what he likes. This will help us to please our friends.

Many people think that God has no feeling. They do not know that God has affection. They say He cannot be pleased neither can He be hurt. But the Bible identified two important things that God loves – Righteousness and Judgment/Justice. God does what is right always and He is never partial in His dealings with us. He is good in all His ways. To please God today, you must choose to love what He loves which is living a righteous and holy life all the days of your life.

PRAYER: Lord, give me grace to live a righteous life.

Psalm 11:5-7

1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
