You can’t please God!

Romans 8:8 KJV So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.
You can’t please God! I’ve heard many people say that over and over again and I used to believe it. Let’s look at some of the difficult ways to please God:
Forgiveness: You have to forgive an offender as long as it’s not beyond 490 counts of offense in a day. Matthew 18:21 That means you’ll need a log book for each person.
Don’t love the world: I’m still alive and can’t afford to miss out on lovely things here. The trend in fashion and the acquisition of wealth. Using the latest phones, cars and gorgeous houses. I can’t live a boring life. 1 John 2:15
Studying the Bible: Each time I try to read the Bible I feel sleepy and if I force myself to it, I sleep off. But we are told to study to show ourselves approved to God. 2 Timothy 2:15
Prayer and Fasting: Pray without ceasing. 1 Thess 5:17; Mark 9:29 but I don’t know how to pray for long. In fact, I try to fast but I can’t miss my breakfast.
These are some of the most difficult things to do when you aren’t born of the Spirit of God. The flesh won’t make pleasing God an easy task to do. If you think it is impossible to please God, it’s because you have been trying to please Him by the flesh and it won’t work. I’ve tried to until I gave up to the Spirit of God.
Romans 8:9-12 KJV
But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. [10] And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. [11] But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you. [12] Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.
The only way you can’t please God is by the flesh. So, give your life to Christ to receive His Spirit and you will find it easy to please God.
Doing the things of the Spirit by the flesh is difficult and doing the things of the flesh by the Spirit is unattainable.
Let us pray: Father, help me to please You more.
