But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
It is impossible to please God without faith. We don’t earn God’s grace or forgiveness. We don’t earn God’s mercy or His love. Everything we receive from the Lord is by faith alone. He is love and He loves to lavish His love upon us. There is so much the Lord desires to do in our lives and often times we miss out because we are chasing after things that have no eternal value.
But when we seek first His kingdom and His righteousness the Lord will bring forth every plan and purpose He has for our lives. We should never compare our lives to anyone else’s and the mistake we make often times is comparing what God is doing in our lives and what He is doing in the lives of others.
Our lives and our calling is unique from anyone else’s. We must simply keep our hearts and eyes fixed upon Jesus. He will lead and guide us one step at a time. It simply comes down to abiding and fellowshipping with the Lord. We have a living relationship with Him and the more we draw near, the more we grow and are transformed.
