“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Heb 11:6).
How do we achieve a lifestyle that pleases God consistently? Only by faith–sola fide, as Luther put it. We please God when we believe that He is a real present help in need (Ps 46:1) and that He is ready to release our divine rewards now. In every situation, raise your banner by faith and say, “My Redeemer lives” (Job 19:25)! Let’s appropriate the fulfilment of God’s prophetic word to us today. His Word shall not return unto Him void, but it shall accomplish the thing for which He sent it (Isaiah 55:11).
