Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. – Hebrews 10:38
There are many things the Lord wants to give His children, however, only a few of them know how to receive from Him. The Bible says, “God is a spirit…” (John 4:24) but man also is a spirit and he lives in a body. So, how can a man in the physical world receive from the spiritual God? By faith in His Word!
The Word of God demands a response. Abraham was reputed to be ‘the father of faith’ because he responded to the Word of God in faith. When God called him away from the comfort of his native country and kinfolks, the Bible says, HE WENT even though he didn’t know where he was going (Hebrews 11:8). Again, when he was told he would have a son, he believed and GAVE GLORY TO GOD, in spite of the fact that his wife was barren and both of them were well advanced in age (Romans 4:19-20).
The scriptures reveal the only way to please God, is by faith (Hebrews 11:6). When God speaks to you, which He always does, don’t just sit there listening as though what you’re hearing doesn’t mean anything to you; receive His Word into your heart by faith. Your faith, the Bible says, is revealed in your actions (James 2:18). So, begin to rejoice and declare His Word. Refuse to observe lying vanities, for God is well able to bring His Word to pass in your life.
