Hi Naomi I think the Lord likes:
1) Joyful music that gives Him praise, honor, and glory; especially when we sing to Him.
"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God." (Colossians 3:16)
"...but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart..." (Ephesians 5:17-19)
“I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.” (Psalms 59:16)
2) When we pray to Him often. Not by using fancy words or being repetitive, but by simply coming to Him and having a normal conversation. We can tell Him about our day, our concerns, our worries; we can confess and repent of our sins; and most importantly, we can thank Him for everything. We can pray out loud and also in our minds, silently.
"But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you." (Matthew 6:6)
“And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words." (Matthew 6:7)
"Continue steadfastly in prayer, being watchful in it with thanksgiving." (Colossians 4:2)
3) I think God likes it when our faith is strong and we don't doubt Him. Depending on the bible version, the word "faith" is used approximately 248 to 270 times. That's a lot! So I believe our faith is very important to God. When we are lacking in faith, we should pray asking the Lord to strengthen it. And when our faith is rock solid, there is nothing that we can't do through Jesus Christ - the author and finisher of our faith!
Your second question, "What does He dislike?", can be summed up in the following verses, I think:
"Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
And I can't remember the book or verse where it says this, but I'm also fairly sure that God dislikes liars, murderers, cheaters, fornicators, adultery, stealing, etc. God is without sin and can't even look upon sin, it is so offensive to His Holiness. That's why we are instructed to repent and turn away from it.
Finally, I don't think anyone knows what God thinks about "everything". That's impossible really, for we are only mere humans; the clay, the creation. God is the Master, the Almighty, and it's best not to wonder what He thinks. For "His thoughts are not our thoughts", you know?
Personally, I seek the Lord mostly through prayer. I do read Scripture, but not all the time, yet I often refer to it when I'm looking for answers to a question that I have. I trust what the bible says over what a person says, any day. I don't listen to music much at all, but sometimes praise & worship songs and hymns will come into my mind. I believe that the Holy Spirit does this to encourage me.
I have never fasted, but lately I've been thinking about it. In my opinion, it's not absolutely necessary to fast in order for God to hear and answer prayer, but if an issue is serious enough to warrant it, I do think that fasting and spending time alone with God in fervent prayer would result in a closer relationship with Him; as well as receiving whatever one is seeking from Him.
About nine years ago, I felt like I was very close to the Lord. I lived completely alone, and would spend a lot of time on my face on the floor, praying. At that time, I did listen to contemporary praise and worship music, and I would sing along. I talked with Jesus throughout the day, and if a serious problem came my way, I would sit on the floor, crying and praying. I spent time in the Word each day, which helped to keep my mind focused on Him and kept me away from sin. He was the first thing I thought of in the morning, and the last person I spoke to before going to sleep. During that period of time (around 2009), I feel that I was very close to the Lord because I was actively seeking Him.
This is all very personal and I'm surprised that it came out here. But I'm curious, Naomi, why you ask these things?
May God bless you, sister!
