Without biblical lesson on faith we cannot please God, because it is a fundamental aspect of our Christian journey.
There are some great men and women in the Hebrews chapter 11 who operate and live their lives by uncompromised faith.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
For by it the elders obtained a good report.
We often say that we have faith and we boast a lot about it. However, when God decides to give our faith a test, the result reports that we lack substance.
The man who truly have faith in the LORD, do not worry when he does not see physical evidence of what he is praying for. Because he knows the biblical definition for faith found in Hebrews 11:1.
He knows that even though he does not see it physically, it will is possible if he only believe and trust God. The scripture also make mention the elders, who by their faith in the LORD, obtained good reports.
Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
This world in which we live were brought into existence by the faithful words of the LORD our GOD. Things that we see were made by things that we cannot see. The words that came out of the mouth of the LORD were invisible, yet the stuff that appeared are visible. What a mighty GOD we serve!
We cannot please GOD without faith, because when we study the Scriptures we realise that all the characters in it operates by faith. It takes faith to move GOD. So GOD is pleased with believers who take time out to fast.
Fasting is a tremendous act of faith, because when you choose to give up one of the main necessities of the body to draw nearer to GOD and strengthen your spirit man; you are telling GOD that HE is more important than your bodily needs.
The Scripture said without faith it is impossible to please HIM. Because once you claim to know God, you must be firm in your faith and not compromise when testing and trials come.
"Faith is taking the whole step, even when you don't see the whole staircase."-- Martin Luther King jr.
We often times lose faith when things don't go according to our plans. This is when the devil show up and suggest the negative. We need to be aware of these moments and cry out to God for help in times of severe trials
Life sometimes gets hard, loved ones died, we face financial crisis, and people sometimes changed. However, faith is knowing deep down that things will get better.
And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.
While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue's house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further?
As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe.
In these Scriptures we can see that it was by the faith of these people that they received their blessing. This lesson on faith tells us that when we have problems that need divine intervention, we need strong faith in the GOD of our salvation.
Faith is so important because without it, we cannot have a relationship with the LORD. We don't see GOD naturally with our eyes, so we need faith to trust and believe that HE is there.
Sometimes we don't know where the money is coming from to pay the bills and to put food on the table, but because of our faith and trust that the LORD will provide, we are so blessed and not stressed.
We also need to give our burdens to the LORD, and have faith that HE will work them for our good. Don't carry around your burdens all day, because it will impede your ability to glorify your GOD.
I hope this lesson has been a blessing to you.
