It Is Impossible To Please God Without Faith.

"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 NKJV.

Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. The Good News Translation renders it more clearly, "To have faith is to be sure of the things we hope for, to be certain of the things we cannot see." (Hebrews 11:1).

Some people treat faith as a spare wheel you take out when one of your wheels deflates. They believe faith is the last resort. For them faith is for the poor and those whose lives are full of difficult problems.

My friend faith is the lifestyle of the righteous. The Bible says that the "just shall live by faith" (Romans 1:17). We have access to the life of God by faith and once received we continue to live and walk by faith. Our journey is from faith to faith.

Look at what living and walking by faith did to Enoch, "It was faith that kept Enoch from dying. Instead, he was taken up to God, and nobody could find him, because God had taken him up. The scripture says that before Enoch was taken up, he had pleased God," (Hebrews 11:5 GNT).

Enoch was kept from dying by faith. Hebrews chapter 11 chronicles  what faith did in the lives of others to the end we might be sure of what faith will do in ours. You cannot walk by faith and be defeated. Even death trembles at the sound of faith in God.

I choose a life of faith. The same faith that made Enoch escape death is at work in me. I choose life, victory and success in Jesus' Name.
