Today is Tuesday, 17 January in the year 2023, and our bible verse of the day will be taken from the book of (Hebrews 11:6).
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.
Our bible verse for today March 22 2022 tells us that without faith, no man on Earth can please God.
And from this Bible verse, we are going to see what faith really means as well as how we can please God through it.
What is faith according to the bible?
The Bible in Hebrews 11:2 defines faith as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not yet seen.
But considering the fact that so many at times we have had high hopes and expectations for things that never came to pass.
Can this then mean that we do not have faith, or that the scripture is lying?
To get an answer to this question, let’s see what the Bible says in Romans 10:17.
“Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”.
And in James 1:22, the scripture tells us that we should not only be hearers of the word deceiving ourselves, rather we should be doers of the word.
How the word of God brings faith.
The simple understanding of how the word of God brings faith is that; if every word or commandments of God carries along with it promises.
For example, when God asked Abraham to depart from his father’s house to a land He will show him, He promised to bless those who bless him and curse those who curse him.
Later on, He promised to give him a descendant that one will never be able to count.
And we see how obeying God enabled Abraham to inherit all those promises.
How to please God.
We can please God when we are able to obey His commandments.
And as we can see from out Bible verse, when we please God we will be able to receive all the reward that comes with it.
And don’t forget it is faith that will help you do so.
Let us try as much as possible to believe that God is able to fulfill whatever He promised mankind.
