5-6By an act of faith, Enoch skipped death completely. “They looked all over and couldn’t find him because God had taken him.” We know on the basis of reliable testimony that before he was taken “he pleased God.” It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him. Hebrews 11:5-6
Beloved, Enoch is just one example of the favor one obtains, from pleasing God! This scripture is so powerful, because it reveals to us the secret of the Kingdom to obtaining the favor of God.
Beloved, it appears from these reliable testimonies, that it is a simple matter of believing that God exist, and He cares enough to respond to those who seek God with their whole heart. I hear all the questions just bubbling up inside of us.
Sister Betty, why aren’t God’s children living a more victorious life? Why is there such lack (lack of finances, lack of spiritual growth, lack of jobs, etc.) among the children of God? Why is it that we are living so beneath the privileges and the power which God has impart into His children. As many who will search themselves, already know the answer to these questions is just as varied.
Beloved, I will only add that we have allowed the cares of this world on an individual basis, to overshadow our faith that God is who He say He is. Because now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. (Hebrews 11:1). Too many times, we say, I can not see it.
Beloved, as it is written, anyone who wants to approach God, he must first believe that God exist and He cares enough to respond to those who diligently seek after him.
Beloved that seeking can look like anything from praying, fasting, studying the God to show ourselves approved before God, to listening to know God’s voice to be loyal and faithful to His calling. But as it is written, without first believing that God is real and He is concerned about everything that concerns us; we can not, and we will not do any of these things.
Beloved, know without a doubt that God does exist and He exist inside of everyone of His children, and you must know it and you can know it. You just have to love Him more than you love this world and we must with His help, make Him a priority and spent some time experiencing Him in our prayer life and in His Word. We can not know Him if we do not take time to study His Word.
Sister Betty, Who desires to love God with all my strength, my soul and mind, with all my heart, please father, circumcise my heart do it for me right now Father, in Jesus name. Amen
