“And 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 seek Him” – Hebrews 11:6
Most of us know this scripture and we understand that without FAITH we cannot please God. The currency of Heaven is FAITH. The part that I found most interesting is that there are 2 things that the writer of Hebrews makes clear. There are 2 things we MUST believe.
Firstly, when we approach God, we must know that He is God. Imagine for a moment if we came to God but we simply did not believe that He is God. That is like seeking “professional” assistance in some matter, but not believing that this individual can help us. When we come to God…we MUST believe that He is God…that He can change our lives, that He can intervene in our world and change our destiny.
Secondly, the scripture says that we MUST believe that God is a REWARDER. God wants to reward us. A “reward” is an exuberant blessing for a “small” task. For example; the police is offering a $25,000 reward for anyone with information…God wants to REWARD those who would seek Him. What a blessing!
Finally remember 2 simple things. God is GOD and He is a REWARDER. Spend a few moments today seeking God and KNOW that He will REWARD you generously. What an AWESOME God we serve.
