β™‘ Hebrews 11:6 β™‘
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
.
πŸ‘‰ In order to please the Lord, we must believe that God is who he says he is, we must believe that what God says is the truth, & act accordingly! πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ’–
.
As the verse says, anyone who comes to him MUST believe that he EXISTS. So in order to please God, we must believe that God is real & that His word is real! πŸ’–πŸ€“
.
…And that He rewards those who earnestly seek him. – Wow, we must believe that by simply seeking him sincerely, we will be rewarded. We will be blessed! God wants to hear from us & He wants to have to have a relationship with us! .
β™‘ Heb. 11:1 β™‘
Now faith is the assurance of what we hope for and the certainty of what we do not see.
.
Faith is believing in the promises of God, even though we’ve yet to see them happen. Even though we’ve yet to receive our reward, it is believing God’s word that yes, it will happen. And also ACTING as though these things WILL happen. Faith requires action of our part! πŸ’ͺ
.
Faith is something we all have to constantly work on. The more we learn about God & seek Him, the more He reveals Himself to us, & the more we mature in our walk, & become stronger in our faith!πŸ’ͺπŸ™ŒπŸ» Our faith grows when we’re feeding ourselves the Word of God. Just like we eat daily we also must feed our spirit. πŸžπŸ˜‹
.
The action of seeking the Lord sincerely, acting according to His Word, demonstrates to God that you are believing that He is REAL, & choosing to believe His promises even though we may not see all of it yet, that pleases the Lord! Without believing in God & His promises, it is IMPOSSIBLE to please Him! πŸ’–πŸ™ŒπŸ»πŸ˜

β™‘James 6-8β™‘
But he must ask in faith, without doubting, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.Β 7 That man should not expect to receive anything from the Lord.Β 8 He is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.
.
β™‘1 John 5:4β™‘
For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the worldβ€”our faith.
