“And without faith it is impossible to please God, for whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).
Without faith it is impossible to please God…
In order to have faith, there must always be an object of faith. To have faith means to trust and to have confidence in whatever we have faith in.
When we cross a bridge, we have faith, trust, and confidence that the bridge has the capacity to bear our weight and safely get across the chasm.
Faith isn’t just believing in faith. Faith is to have trust, confidence in God. It is God we have faith in. To have faith in God means that we trust and have confidence that God will do what God promises. So the writer of Hebrews reminds us, “whoever would approach him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.”
We are going through a difficult time in history. But you are not alone. God is still faithful. God is still trustworthy. We can have confidence that God is still at work in you and me and in our world to bring about his kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
More than ever, Little Church and Lakewoodgrace, lean hard on the promises of God. God is not done with our world. The world needs God more now than ever before. Show the world what people who have faith that God is at work looks like. As we say often at the Little Church and Lakewoodgrace, the best is yet to come. Our best days don’t lie behind us. Our best days are yet to be experienced!
Live as though we are people of faith in a great and awesome God! Be encouraged. Strengthen yourself with this truth.
