SUNDAY TONIC: PLEASING GOD FOR YOUR DESIRED TURNAROUND





TOPIC:  Pleasing God For Your Desired Turnaround

TEXT: “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

According to our opening scripture, no one can please God without faith, because God is a faith-God; He functions by faith. You must believe that He exists, and that He rewards those that diligently seek Him; those whose hearts are after Him. In other words, to please God, we must live in faith.

How can we live in faith?

Before we go into that, we must have an understanding of faith.

 So, what is faith?

“Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Hebrews 11:1

Faith is the evidence of the unseen realities based on God’s Word. Faith is giving substance to the unseen. Faith is the evidence of your right to things you don’t see as stated in the Word.   

For example, even though you might never have seen heaven, you know that heaven is real. This isn’t because a friend told you he/she has seen the heavens, but because God’s Word tells us that there’s heaven and it is God’s dwelling place.

Also, we know that Jesus died to give us salvation because God’s Word tells us so. We believe everything God’s Word tells us about Jesus: His birth, life, ministry, death, burial, resurrection, and glorious ascension. So, faith is based on the Word, not assumptions or make-believe.

Though we can’t “see”, “feel “, “smell” or “taste” God, we are admonished to have faith in Him. Why? This is because faith is beyond the physical realm.  He doesn’t relate with your human senses. He relates with your spirit, which is real to you. The human being isn’t a physical body. Your physical body is where you (your spirit) live. You’re a spirit; you‘re like God, because He made you (your spirit) in His image. 

Take a second look at the image above. The baby has no doubt that he will fall into the hands of his daddy and so he lets himself to drop from the cliff without even thinking.  What happens to him?

As a born again child of God, you please Him by consciously living the lifestyle of faith.  Living a lifestyle of faith is living in a realm that’s unperceivable to the senses; you live spiritually. With faith, you go beyond confidence and trust in God.

When you need something from God, faith enables you see yourself as already having it. Even though it is not physically with you, you know it’s real, and as a result you declare and behave like you already have it. You’re not trusting God to make it happen; you know it’s done.

We deal or relate with the unseen through faith, and the only way you know they exist is because the Word of God says so. Therefore, your faith is actually based on what God has said. Your faith comes alive when God talks through His Word.

What is that challenge in your life?  After speaking with God, see it as a done deal with no iota of doubt.  This is the way to please God. 

A CALL TO NEW BIRTH:

God only responds to your faith when you are connected with Him. And the only way to connect with Him is to accept Jesus as your Lord and personal savior.

In John 14: 6, Jesus saith, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

If you are yet to accept Jesus into your heart, this is the time to do that and connect with God for the strength to run with your Vision.

Make up your mind and say this prayer:

Lord Jesus, I know I’m a sinner, And I believe you died for me, I surrender my life to you this minute, Please come in and cleanse me with your blood, From now on, you are the master of my life.

I’m cleansed, I’m saved and I’m born again, until the day of your appearing, In Jesus’ name, Amen!

CONGRATULATIONS! Welcome to the new world of eternal life! Your triumph is sure from this minute.
