Hebrews 11:6: And without faith it is impossible to please God

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.

Hebrews 11:6 NIV

Pleasing the Lord is not based upon our behavior.  Pleasing the Lord is based on faith in who He is.  When our faith is placed in Jesus Christ we become an adopted child of God and we are able to go boldly to the throne of grace with confidence because we are declared righteous.

Each day that Lord desires that we simply grow in our relationship with Him.  He is calling us to abide in Him and simply draw near each and every day.  As we draw near we grow in our relationship with Him and we grow in maturity.  We grow in the understanding of His word and as we grow in the understanding of His word, we develop a deeper prayer life.

There are incredible rewards that await those who seek and follow after Jesus Christ.  This world is not our home and in this world we will have trial and tribulation but we have nothing to fear because the Lord has overcome the world.  Let us press on toward the high call in Christ Jesus and simply focus our hearts upon the Lord daily.
