Day 167 – You Can’t Please God Without Faith
‘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.’ Hebrews 11:6
What God is looking for from you is an attitude and a stand point of absolute trust in Him. God is pleased as you walk with Him in total trust. When God looks down and sees your expectation of the miraculous in your life despite the obstacles in your life he is pleased. Hebrews 10:38 says ‘but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.’ Your commitment to God as far as believing that ‘whatever He says He will do, He will do’ is very important. God is pleased seeing His people stand on His word in spite of negative situations.
Imagine you are a parent who has given your word to your child that you will do something. If your child starts nagging you with an indication that he or she doubt your promise, is it not insulting? How much worse if the child runs to someone else asking for the same thing with an explanation or implication that you might not do it, yet you have the power to do it? I am sure you would not be happy with that scenario.
The Bible says without faith it is impossible to please God. Without your absolute trust in the capacity of God to do what He says, it is impossible for you to please Him. When you walk by faith you will also live a holy life. Remember, your God is reliable.
