Just Faith in God
Today our devotion comes from Hebrews 11:6.
The Word of God says that the only way to please God is to have faith. Faith in what? Faith in God.
That He is, and He rewards those who seek Him diligently. The “is” means He presently is. Like, He is being. He is real. He is right now. What pleases God? However, that is only half of the verse.
He is a rewarder of those who seek after Him. But is that all? There is more to the “is”.
He is who He says He is.
He is the God who sent His son to die on the cross an unspeakable death to save us.
Yes, that is who He is.
He created the world and all that is in it.
When He created it all He knew who we were, and that we would blow it.
He knew that there would be a fall.
He knew that his people would not know Him when He came to them in the flesh.
He knew we would deny Him. He still came. Faith in Him. Faith in that God is what pleases Him.
Tumble this scripture in your mind and allow Him to reveal to you who He is. Only faith in God pleases God.
Not our works, not our prayers, not our praise, not our witness, not our volunteering to clean the church bathrooms, not our missionary contributions, not our tithe, not our obedience, not what you could do and insert here _________________. Just faith in God.
Not faith in the answer to our prayers, the provision, the prayer itself, the church, the vocation He has called us to, etc. Just faith in God.
So what does that leave us with? Just faith in God, and He is pleased!
