“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
God rewards those who earnestly seek him. We have to believe this. Faith feels risky. It is making a
decision to trust something when you cannot see the outcome. Things could go wrong. But the truth is
that we do have confidence because putting our faith in God is always safe. It feels unsafe. It maybe
feels irresponsible. We haven’t received satisfactory answers to all our questions. We feel doubt. We
don’t know exactly what He will do. It might be painful. But it is good. Have faith. He rewards those
who earnestly seek him.
You can have faith and feel doubt. Faith is more a decision than a feeling. You decide to put all your
eggs in that basket. You take the step. The Father is pleased by your faith.
