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
Are we seeking His rewards? He wants to bless us!
The blessng of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.Proverbs 10:22
Are we seeking His blessing – or are we seeking our own rewards? The key is to re-orient our desires to His desires.
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.Psalm 37:4
Oftentimes we wonder why God didn’t let so-and-so fall in love with us, only for us to realize God had a better plan for us, and once we let Him give us new desires, we were fulfilled greater than we could imagine!
His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.Matthew 25:21
Believe in Him (not just intellectual assent, but a belief that motivates action!) Let’s ask for help to believe, and to align our desires with His!
