Hebrews 11:6 – But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
Do you know what pleases God? He’s not impressed by how much knowledge we have. He isn’t influenced by how many possessions we have. He’s not moved by our accomplishments; He is moved simply by our faith in Him.
Faith is a gift. It’s not something that has to be contrived or worked up. The Scripture tells us that everyone has been given a measure of faith, and that faith grows as we hear the Word of God. That’s why it’s so important to stay connected to a Bible-based church where you can hear the Word of God taught. That’s why it’s so important to make time every day to read and study His Word because that’s how you feed your faith. Best of all, the more you know His Word, the more you understand that He is a good God, and He rewards the people who seek after Him.
Today, take time to feed your faith. Meditate on His Word and ask Him to illuminate your heart with His truth. Trust that He is good and has good things in store for your future because that is faith that pleases God.
Father in heaven, thank You for giving me faith so that I can be pleasing to You. As I seek You and study Your Word, I invite You to illuminate my heart with Your truth. Transform me into Your image and let everything I do bring glory to You. In Jesus’ Name… Amen!
