BY FAITH WE PLEASE GOD
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
None of us could come to Jesus, without the touch of the Holy Spirit, who convicted us of sin and gave us the faith to believe that Jesus is the Son of God. From there, it is up to us to continue and grow in faith. We are to believe for healing, provision, protection and all that we can receive from God.
We could not come to God unless we believed that He is and that the Bible reveals who He is. Once we find the Lord, we must continue to seek Him with all our hearts, to diligently study His Word, so that we can know and understand His will, as well as, what pleases and upsets Him. Once God finds pleasure in us, He rewards us with all kinds of heavenly and earthly blessings!
We as humans, are not pleased with those who do not appreciate us or recognize the value of what we do or treat us wrongly. Why would we expect that God, the Creator of all the universe would be pleased by those who have no faith in Him?
Dear Lord God, thank You so much for sending the Holy Spirit to convict me of sin and help me believe that Jesus is Your Son. You blessed me beyond my imagination and there is no telling what else You have in store for me. Your rewards are more precious than anything and living to please You is the only life I want to live. Thank You so much for all You have done and still do for me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen
