The thoughts of the wicked are detestable to GOD, but the words of the pure are pleasant to Him. ~ (Proverbs 15:26)

Our thoughts are unknown to men, but known to God. He hates it when we harbor evil thoughts against others.  The thoughts, prayers, praise and words from a good heart are pleasurable to Him.



According to the Bible, we are considered 'wicked' if we are:  immoral, unrighteous, ungodly (i.e. refusing the Gift of Salvation), jealous, malicious, corrupt;  basically going against everything the Gospel of our LORD JESUS CHRIST teaches (as contained in the New Testament), and any of the Eternal Laws of GOD (also known as the Ten Commandments).
If you are not a Christian or not yet born-again, there is good news. GOD does not want to see anyone punished and ultimately spend eternity in hell (Ezekiel 33:11).  There is a way to escape His wrath.  The way is, taking the first step to pursue righteous, which is accepting the Gift of Salvation by faith in JESUS CHRIST, who died on the cross of Calvary for our sins.   His Blood cleanses us of all manner of sins (1 John 1:7).  We are made righteous, only when we surrender our lives to Him completely.  He then empowers us to live a lifestyle of holiness, through the Holy Spirit.

GOD detests the way of the wicked, but loves those who pursue righteousness. ~ (Proverbs 15:9)

It is impossible to encounter GOD without righteousness.  A wicked person can never find favor with Him, unless he turns away from his sins.
However, GOD has no pleasure in the death of a sinner or a wicked fellow.  He does not wish to see anyone perish in hell.  All He requires of us is to turn away from our wicked or sinful nature and pursue righteousness, so we may have eternal life (Ezekiel 33:11).  
How can we pursue righteousness?
The first step to pursuing righteousness is to accept JESUS CHRIST as our LORD and SAVIOR.  His Blood, which was shed on the Cross of Calvary as payment for our sins, cleanses us of all unrighteousness (1 John 1:7)
No one can have access to the Only True GOD and make it to Heaven without surrendering to JESUS CHRIST (John 14:6). Likewise, no one can please a perfect GOD by his own strength and morality - JESUS CHRIST is our Righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30).  We are made righteous, only when we surrender our lives to Him completely. He then empowers us to live a lifestyle of holiness, through the Holy Spirit.
Surrendering your life to JESUS is not as complicated as you thought.

THE HOLY SPIRIT is called 'The Spirit of Counsel'. ~ (Isaiah 11:2)

The Holy Spirit manifests His presence as the Spirit of Counsel, to enable us make good decisions following the principles of the Word of God and His will. 

He also gives counsel through vessels of honor.  He can use ministers of God or other believers that He has empowered and given utterance, to deliver a message to you on a specific matter. 

When next you are faced with a dilemma or concerned about an issue, seek the counsel of the Holy Spirit.  Wait upon Him to make decisions for you in every area of your life.  Rest assured that you can never go wrong when you follow His leading.  

(1) The Holy Spirit is the Third Person of the Trinity. He is GOD.
(2) The Holy Spirit has emotions just like us, and can be pleased, displeased, or grieved.
(3) You must be born-again (i.e accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour) for the Holy Spirit to dwell in you.

JESUS CHRIST is the One Mediator between GOD the Father and men. ~ (1 Timothy 2:5)

Jesus Christ acts as the link between God the Father and man.  We have free access to God the Father through Him, and a right to all privileges.  Of utmost importance is the authority He gave us to ask the Father for anything in His Name, and the assurance that we will receive (John 16:23). 
Jesus Christ is the only Mediator between us and God the Father.  Once you invite Jesus into your life and make Him your Lord and Saviour, you can approach the Father in Him with freedom and confidence. 
Great things happen when Christians come together in unity and agree in prayers.  However, answers to prayers or miracles should never be ascribed to a fellow human being or object.
