God's Words For US
by Cecelia Lester
But, without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe He is and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 (NKJV)
When we go before the LORD, we must believe He is who He says He is. The writer of Hebrews tell us without our believing in Him we cannot please Him. When we go before His throne, there are certain things we must believe:
* He will listen to our pleas.
If our hearts are in tune with Him.
* He will answer our requests.
In the way that is best for us and His plan.
* He will reward us for our efforts.
His rewards may be a lightness of heart.
He may give us new insight into a concern or a problem.
However, we must concentrate on Him while we seek His guidance.
“But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who i s in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.“ Matthew 6:6 (NKJV)
Sometimes, we can follow Matthew 6:6 when we are in a crowd. Other times we must obey this scripture by physically removing ourselves from the circumstance that needs our prayer.
