“And without Faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6 (NASB).
It might seem a bit absurd but can you recall a time you looked for something with grave doubt you would ever find it? But your desire and need Pressed you on and when you found it, relief flooded over you? You actually did believe you could find it – that’s why the search pressed on for so long. So it happens with people who are seeking God. They pretend to know God but actually do not have the faith in God that brings them to really know God. A life time of pretending or thinking you are a child of God without ever having the faith to believe that He is exactly who He says He is in the Bible, results in eternal disaster. Those who want to truly know God and who truly seek Him are those who through faith believing find God. Why seek for something that one does not believe will reward them with the fulfillment of finding? God will reward all of us, each one who seeks God in true faith and actually believe that what He has promised, He will do for those who believe Him and in Him.
