Hebrews 11:6 ASV
“And without faith it is impossible to be well-pleasing unto him; for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that seek after him.”
Hebrews 11:6 AMP
“But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out].”
What is possible? Better yet, what is the greatest possibility with the greatest reward?
It is possible for mankind to please God.
Mat 19:23 — Mat 19:26
“And Jesus said unto his disciples, Verily I say unto you, It is hard for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through a needle’s eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God. And when the disciples heard it, they were astonished exceedingly, saying, Who then can be saved? And Jesus looking upon them said to them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”
God is not interested in you focusing on the earthly possessions you already have. He is interested in you concentrating on the Holy possibilities He is bringing your way.
All we have to do is HAVE FAITH to:
1. Believe in the existence of Him.
2. Come near to Him.
3. Earnestly and diligently seek Him.
4. Know that God rewards the faithful.
1 Chronicles 28:9
David’s Charge to Solomon
“And you, Solomon my son, know the God of your father and serve him with a whole heart and with a willing mind, for the Lord searches all hearts and understands every plan and thought. If you seek him, he will be found by you, but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.”
Jer 29:12 — Jer 29:14
“Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and gather you from all the nations and all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from which I sent you into exile.”
“…God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
