TOPIC: Faith and Daily Living
"And 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" - Hebrews 11:6.
Faith is not an event; it is a lifestyle. Faith is not a parachute that you pull out in emergencies, it is to be your day-to-day walk with the Lord as you find and fulfill purpose, set and achieve goals, manage your time and organize your life and world around you. Without faith, it is impossible to please God. That means with faith, you can please Him. Are you pleasing Him? Is faith a lifestyle for you or just something you use when you are backed into a corner and have no other options? What are you trusting the Lord for right now that, if He does not come through, you will look foolish?
Lord, I want to please You and there is not way to do that without trusting You, without faith. I confess that I often have faith when I have run out of options, but I see today that you desire a lifestyle of faith, and not just an occasional excursion into faith. Forgive me for my unbelief as I venture forth in faith.
