Pleasing God with Our Faith
Hebrews 11:6 "And 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 seek Him."
For the Lord's born again children, we must have faith and believe that who Jesus says He is, He is.
Scripture tells us that without faith, we cannot please God and with our faith in Jesus, we are to continue to seek Him. To accomplish pleasing our Lord, we must be willing to come to Him in His way and also to believe in Him.
We also need to seek Jesus in all things of our life. Not only when the going gets difficult – no, in all areas of our life are we to seek the Lord.
We cannot say, "Well, I go to Church on Sunday and so I am seeking Him there." No, that is not seeking Jesus by just going to Church. We are to give Him our time in prayer and in any area that He asks us to do something for Him. It is a 24-hour a day task loving Jesus and seeking to do His will. It means we are in communication with God, daily. We are reading His Word, daily.
Those who want to please the Lord and seek Him should look to Him in every endeavor of their lives. So how do you and I accomplish seeking and pleasing Jesus today in our lives, home, jobs, etc?
God loves us and He desires our trust and faith in Him. We go to Him and do what He wants us to do. We pray for those who are of the world, for our Pastors and leaders.
Practice faith in Jesus. Believe that He knows the beginning from the end and know that Jesus only wants to give us the best. Jesus loves us and He will never forsake us.
Start today by pleasing the Lord and by seeking His face. Amen.
