“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6 NLT)
Whatever we do, whatever we are expecting to receive from God, whatever it is we think we can do to promote the Kingdom of God, we must do with our faith, firmly entrenched in Him–knowing (not thinking) that with Him we can do all things well!
We cannot “delight in The Lord” expecting Him to give us the desires of our heart, if we don’t have complete faith in who He is and what He is able to do in our lives.
We cannot “stand firm” on His Word if we do not have faith to believe that He said what He meant and meant what He said.
We cannot “be victorious” in every area of lives if we do not have faith in His ability to move mountains out of our way.
In order to receive all that God has for us, we must believe (without doubting) that everything He promised (in His Word) He would do, He will do, to His glory that all will come to believe in Him. Our faith, firmly rooted and grounded in Him, increased by hearing, and hearing The Word, must be the impetus, the driving force that keeps us going, knowing we will reap the benefits of all He has promised.
In Him, we live and move. In Him we can victory in every area of our lives. In Him, we know we can do all things and do them well.
By faith in Him, we know that He created all things and without Him, nothing was created.
By faith in Him, we know that He is the same as He was yester-years, today, and will be forever.
By faith in Him, we know that nothing, absolutely nothing is impossible for us to achieve.
By faith in Him, we know that living a Godly-life, according to His plans for our lives, we will spend eternity with Him at the end of our journey on earth.
If we have no faith in Him, cannot believe that He is who He is and can do what He says He will do, we cannot please Him and therefore should expect–absolutely nothing from Him!
If we want to see a change in our communities, a change in our nation, a change in what’s happening in the world, we must change what we believe and do. We have to believe that He is and He will do whatever He has promised He will do–whether it is to lift us in victory over everything the enemy is doing or leave us to be defeated–the outcome is on us and whether we please Him with our faith in Him.
If we want to please Him and see all of His promises to us come to pass, we must believe and have faith in Him!
