And without faith, it’s impossible to please God, because anyone that comes to him must believe he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Women, if your husband didn’t believe in you and doubted your loyalty how would you feel?
Men, if your wife consistently questioned your ability to provide for your family, how would you feel?
Now magnify that by the zillionth power and that’s how God feels when we have little or no faith in Him.
Even if you only have faith as small as a mustard seed, it will change your life. Some of us don’t even push the limits that far. When you can’t believe in yourself or others that you can see and touch daily, believe in Him…He’s never steered you wrong.
Father, thank You for giving me another day to serve and worship You. Thank You for Your patience as I sometimes waver from total faith to half faith. Thank You for the trials in my life that ultimately helped me to develop my character. I’m so glad that I know You, and that You live in and through me. I pray to please You Lord. Amen.
