Key To Pleasing God

Key Verse

“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” (Hebrews 11:6).

TEXT — Hebrews 11:1-6


Smith Wigglesworth, a British evangelist who was influential in the early days of Pentecostalism due to his faith ministry, visited a family that had lost a five-year-old boy. Tears ran down his face on getting there and he asked everyone to leave the room. Alone with the dead boy, Wigglesworth rebuked the spirit of death in the name of Jesus and the boy returned to life. His faith was unshakable; it is said that this man of God raised 14 people from the dead by demonstrating faith in the Lord Jesus.

Faith is defined in the text as the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Great things have happened in the history of the world because men of like passions demonstrated their faith in God. Faith is not limited to believing that God can do anything but knowing who God is. We are reminded in this passage that it will be impossible for anyone who does not have faith to please God. Those who draw close to Him must believe in who He is and that He rewards faithfulness, diligence and loyalty.

Our faith is demonstrated in the way we live and by the things we do. If we believe that God truly is and sees all that we do, we will not want to do any evil in secret with the mind that no one is watching. We will not hesitate in giving God our very best and serving Him with all we have because we believe He rewards all who diligently seek and serve Him. This is the kind of faith that helps us to please God at all times.

It is indeed appalling to see people who claim to have faith in God still go to questionable places to seek help. If we believe the Lord with all our hearts and seek to please Him always, He will always rise to help us in our hour of need.

Thought for the day

Faith does not depend on “seeing”.

  1. The quality of faith is determined when tried and tested by trials or temptations: Hebrews 11:17-19 -“By faith Abraham, when he was tried ….”. Job said in chapter 23:10–12 (KJV) 10  But he knoweth the way that I take:
    When he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.
    11  My foot hath held his steps,
    His way have I kept, and not declined.
    12  Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips;
    I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
