Your Word for This Day: “It is by Faith”

 faith-is

 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”  Hebrews 11:6

By: Diann J. Wilson

As children of the Light our chief goal is to please God.  In fact, we learn from the Book of Revelation that we were created for God’s pleasure.  In other words, we were created to please or give pleasure to God.

So many times we think that the more we do for God, is the more He is pleased with us.  We work ourselves out, we get involved with so many things, good things, and we say that God is pleased.

The reality is, however, according to the Word of God, that the only thing that pleases God is our faith in Him.  God is looking for those whose confidence in Him is      unshakeable and whose desire for Him is unquenchable.

The world is filled with believers who don’t believe and pray-ers who have no faith.  We must not be like that.  Let us bring pleasure to God our heavenly Father by our Faith in Him. Remember that we, the just, must live by faith.

It is by faith and faith alone.
