KEY SCRIPTURE: Heb 11:6 KJV” 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.”

In this series of studies, we are looking at the various aspects of the personality of Jesus, His priorities, and His general philosophies to life. The Lord led the most successful life since He did everything to please the Father. He remains the best example for anyone to follow. During His days on earth, He showed us what moves God the most. He said faith in God moves God into action. Our key scripture shows us that without faith, it is impossible to please or attract  God. The Lord Jesus was always moved with excitement when He encountered anyone who expressed faith in God, or Him. In Matt 8:9 when the centurion who sent for Jesus to come to heal his servant, sent to tell Jesus that, he was not fitting to have Jesus under his roof, but the Lord should only say the word and his servant would be healed. The Lord was really amazed at that answer. He quickly asked them to go for the servant was healed.

Why is faith in God so important to Him?

God is a Spirit. Faith is operated through the heart, where the spirit of man is Faith is also an act of the spirit. God can only be encountered not in the senses or reason but through the spirit. Believing God also declares that God is just or righteous. God subsequently justifies he that believes in Him. Rom 10:10 KJV “For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth, confession is made unto salvation.” We believe with the heart and so are justified or made righteous. The Bible is such an amazing book because it is a compilation of the exploits of people of faith.

Believing God’s word is of great importance to us. Jesus described little children as the kind of people that have easy access to heaven and the father as well. Children are very receptive and easily yield. This is what faith in God is all about. It is a total surrender unto God. Faith is casting your life on the faithfulness of God.

Faith in God is not a mental issue yet it begins with a decision to let the heart yield to what the word says. It grows by yielding to the word of God. Faith also grows through meditation on the word. Finally, our faith gets more robust through practicing the word.

Matt 7:24 KJV” Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:”

Just consider this scripture. Heb 11:33 KJV” Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions, He Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens.”


Thank you, heavenly Father, for the gift of faith. Faith is not an initiative of us men, rather it comes from you, God by your faith in us we overcome every onslaught of the devil .



Heb 10:35 KJV Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward.

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