Being a Christian is all about pleasing God because we love Him. Do you know how to please God? Heâ€™s not impressed by how much knowledge we have. He is not impressed by how many possessions we own. Heâ€™s not moved by our accomplishments; He is pleased by our faith.
Scripture says faith is a gift. Itâ€™s not something that has to be contrived or worked up. Everyone has been given a measure of faith which grows as we hear the Word of God. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s so important to stay connected to a Bible-based community where the Word of God is being taught. Itâ€™s why we need to make time every day to read and study His Word, because thatâ€™s how we feed our faith.
Today, the more we get to know Godâ€™s Word, the more weâ€™ll understand that God is good, and He rewards the people who seek after Him. Take time to feed your faith and meditate on His Word. Ask Him to illuminate your heart with His truth. Trust that God is good and has good things in store for you today and in your future. Believe this by faith because thatâ€™s what pleases God!
â€œAnd without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.â€ (Hebrews 11:6, NIV)
Yahweh, thank You for giving me the gift of faith so that I can please You. Father, as I seek You and study Your Word, please illuminate my heart with truth and power. Almighty God, transform me today into Your image, and let everything I do bring glory to You, in Christâ€™s Name. Amen.Â
