Without faith it is impossible to be well pleasing to him, for he who comes to God must believe that he exists, and that he is a rewarder of those who seek him.
Promise #55: I will reward those who diligently seek Me with a heart of faith.
The very foundation of our relationship to God is our faith in Him. If we don't believe that He exists, it will be difficult for us to cultivate a living, loving relationship with Him. Our very salvation comes through our faith as Paul wrote in Ephesians 2:8-9... 8 for by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, that no one would boast.

God loves it when we choose to have faith in Him despite what our outward circumstances might be saying. In Hebrews 11, we read many accounts of the heros of faith who believed God against all odds. My encouragement to you today is to declare God's goodness and His love over your life whether you feel like it or not. Our feelings are not always accurate. They can deceive us at times.
So stand firm today my friend. Choose to believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those that diligently seek Him. Your faith and trust will move the heart of our God and Father like nothing else. Photo by Barry Adams
