Faith Pleases God
Author: Rev Lydia D’Ross, Brookhaven Hospital, Renewal Program Outreach Chaplain
Hebrews 11:6 says “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.”
How do we obtain faith? The best analogy I can give you is this: You know that a check is coming because you worked five days a week. You see visuals about the check all week. There is a luminescent knowing that glows within you: you are going to receive that check. You have faith in your employer that at the end of week, your employer is going to hand you a check. You have no doubt in your blazing heart that your employer is going to give you a check because the company is worthy of you working for them. You receive the word in your heart that by faith, your employer has no reason not to give you a check. You waited on the employer all week by faith. You have done three things so far: You confessed the word. You believed the Word in your heart and now you will receive what your faith has been waiting for. No reason to doubt or have unbelief because you know that you know. Your faith that your employer will give you a check will come to pass.
It is the same with God. God has given you his Word. His promises. We confess the Word to get it into our heart. When it is in our heart, we can believe that God’s Word will come to pass. No matter how long it takes. If you believe by faith the first time, then Angels have begun to work. But if you doubt with unbelief- it is not faith. It is fear. Fear is the opposite faith.
Activate your faith, for God is well pleased when we are moved by Faith. For God says in Psalms 34:10 that if we ” seek the Lord, So I shall no lack any good thing.” !
