Living It Out By Faith Pt. 1
But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6 NKJV
If we were to examine ourselves, I think we could all say we desire to be pleasing to God, but what exactly is pleasing to God? Is it the effort we make to be a good person? Or is it doing our duty as a christian, like living holy, reading your Bible, and praying? These all are great things that will help you and give you success, but the Bible says it’s faith that pleases God.
So what is faith? Faith is the evidence of things hoped for and the substance of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1). Simply put, this is not a natural thing. Faith is of the heart, not the head. It is not seen with the natural eyes, but with the spiritual eyes! Faith is trusting God when you cannot see Him or feel Him. Faith is trusting in what the bible says even when it seems impossible to be true when thinking about it with the natural mind.
This is why Faith is so pleasing to God. Ultimately, it comes down to knowing and trusting Him. It’s about diligently seeking Him. Not only is that pleasing to Him, but He rewards you for that! Praise God!
Be Blessed and Encouraged,
