Faith that Is Pleasing


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


This morning I woke up thinking about the level of my faith. Is it pleasing unto God? This scripture is so powerful; in that it asks us to do something, to receive something. We must seek the Lord with our whole hearts, minds and souls to receive our reward. But in the midst of everything that is going on, we are pulled from every direction and our hearts go one way, our minds another and Jesus bless our souls!


I truly want to be pleasing unto God. I want to be a vessel of honor. I want to walk in obedience. I want to yield to His will. I want to hear Him say "Well Done!" I want to walk the streets of Gold. I want to see Jesus.


Have you really ever considered where your level is? Are you full, half way there or running on empty? I know that to please Him, we must believe that He is. But believing is half of the battle, we must know that He is.


The Lord has been my provider, deliverer, sustainer, encourager, comforter, protector, counselor, friend, companion, lover, and most of all Savior, in every sense of the word. He saved me from sin, myself, foolishness, vanity, pride and self-destruction.


As daughters of the King, we must know that we must cultivate our faith in Him to be pleasing to Him. We must talk with the Lord daily and LISTEN for the answer. We must come to Him believing that He knows what is best, that He is in control and the He IS. And most importantly we must seek HIM - Diligently. Like we search for sales, we must seek after Him. Like we check our emails, we must seek after Him. Like we text, we must seek after Him. Like we shop, we must seek after Him. These are just a few things that we prioritize in our lives. Let's make seeking HIM a calendar item. Let's make seeking Him an email reminder. Let's make seeking Him, the text of the day. Try it. Send an text to one of your fav five and tell them to stop and ask the Lord if they are pleasing Him. Email someone and ask them to check their Faith.


Writing this blog, I am seeking the Wisdom of God and His Words to pass along. I am activating my faith that this will not be just a hobby, but a profound expansion of God's Glory in our lives. I am asking each one who reads today's post, to respond with a hearty Amen.


Add your faith shout to this blog. You don't have to write a long note, just say AMEN!


Keep WALKING in Faith, even with those heels on!
