But without faith, it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is a rewarder of those who earnestly seek Him [out]. Hebrews 11:6
Two things are required to come close to God – believe that He exists and know that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. On the surface, this looks like a piece of delicious cake 😋. But truth is, we live in a world that wants “to see” before believing. But we have a God who wants us “to believe” to see. Amen? ☺️
God wants us to know without a doubt that He exists. That He cares for us. That He is always with us. That when we seek Him wholeheartedly we’ll find Him. That He hears us when we call. He also wants us to know that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him. That He hasn’t asked us to seek Him in vain.
Finding it hard to go near Him? Maybe you need to settle these two things in your heart first!
