Hebrews 11:6- And without faith it is impossible to please God, for he who comes to God must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
Faith=Pistis in the Greek. Persuade, to be persuaded, come to trust. A gift from God and neversomething that can be produced by people.
"Faith" for the believer is "God's divine persuasion" and therefore distinct from human belief (confidence), yet involving it. The Lord continuously births faith in the yielded believer so they can know what He prefers, i.e. the persuasion of His will.
Trying to figure out how to please God? Figure no more for scripture declares that a life of faith ALONE pleases God. Without faith, we can not please God. Bottom line!
Recognizing God's existence is the first step to knowing Him personally. Then we must seek Him and believe that He is who He says He is. He is the Sovereign God of the universe.
Faith and doubt cannot cohabit.
Even though it appears at time that God's timing is off, we can not allow satan to make us doubt what God says concerning us nor our situation or circumstances.
Sometimes God's timing can tempt us to want to doubt, but faith is not doubt, but believing that the end results of God's promises have already been accomplished based on the Word of God, even though we have yet to see it.
The reality of God in heaven and our eternity with Him is of a surety. It is by faith that we believe this, regardless of what we see, hear or believe that is contrary to God's Word.
Don't let times of doubt discourage you. Keep trusting and obeying the Lord Jesus and His Word. As we do, our confidence in Him and His Word will grow.
Our faith in God must be unwavering. Either we believe or we don't. There is no middle ground. Without "faith" we find hopelessness and despair. Without faith we can not please God.
Believe it or not, but God is still in control of all the affairs of the world. He is the Sovereign God. Psalm 103:19-The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His kingdom rules over all.
Is God Sovereign over satan and all his schemes? NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! God has predestined the devils end in the lake of fire.
The call to everyone on today is to trust God by "FAITH." Take Him at His Word for He is faithful and just. He will do just what He says He will do.
If pleasing God is your desire, then you must obey Him.
Faith is assurance that can only be found in God. If you are saved and have placed your faith and trust in God alone, you have an assurance of eternity with God.
Where is your faith on today? In whom or what have you placed your trust? In whom do you believe?
Without faith in God, without believing in Him, without believing that He exist and that He rewards those who seek Him, it is impossible to please Him.
Romans 1:17-This Good News tells us how God makes us right in his sight. This is accomplished from start to finish by faith. As the Scriptures say, "It is through faith that a righteous person has life."
Trust Christ for salvation on today by faith if you are not saved. Mark 9:23-'If you can'?" said Jesus. "Everything is possible for one who believes."
Trust God by faith on today for the saving of your soul!
Romans 10:8b-15-The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart.”[d] This is the word of faith that we preach: 9 that if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved, 10 for with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him will not be ashamed.”[e] 12 For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all is generous toward all who call upon Him. 13 For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”[f]
14 How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? 15 And how shall they preach unless they are sent?
Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and this is not of yourselves. It is the gift of God, 9 not of works, so that no one should boast.
God Himself has established in His Word, one way to please Him and that is by "FAITH" alone for without it none of us can please Him.
Faith starts with Christ and God's atoning work at Calvary on the cross is where it all begins for a believer.
John 14:6-Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
There is no other way to connect with God. Faith in Him is it!
Is your faith being daily activated in Christ Jesus?
Remember, there is only one way to please God and that is by faith in Christ alone. It is in and through Him that we are saved and have eternal life with God the Father.
No faith? No hope! No faith? No salvation!
WITHOUT FAITH IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO PLEASE GOD!
