Faith Pleases God
Faith is extremely important for us as Christians to have. Faith keeps us going from day to day. It is essential we hold on to our faith and never lose it. We may lose friends and things, but we should never lose our faith. Faith is trust and an overwhelming confidence in God. Faith does not rest on logical proof or material evidence, faith is not seeing is believing it is not seeing and still believing. Faith when you really look at doesn't make sense, but it is not supposed to make logical sense, but it makes good spiritual sense.
The Scripture reminds us that, without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. I encourage you to keep your faith in God as you go throughout this day. You have heard it said that, God may not come when you want Him, but He is always on time, and it takes faith to believe that He will be there for you. That was true then and it is still true now. We have to believe God will do what He said He would do in our lives. Believe and trust God and know He rewards those who will diligently seek Him.
When you have faith, and you go to God you know He is going to do something about your situation. When you go to God in faith you can expect something to happen. It may not happen like you think it should happen, but your faith will remind you that God will show up in your situation and turn it around for the good. Seek God today and be diligent about your pursuit of Him, and He will be found by you, and will take care of you through every situation. Because of your faith you know without a doubt that God is there for you. Trials may come and go in my life, but I will never lose my faith in God.
Since I am standing on my faith in Him I have no doubt, "It's My Year To Get My Thing From My God."
Lord each day I seek you by faith, and by that faith you bless me beyond measure. I love you Lord thank you for being my God. In Jesus Name Amen.
