[ecko_quote source=" Hebrew 11:6"]"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"[/ecko_quote]

Devotional Thought

Some people say faith moves mountains. That is not true. God moves mountains.Faith is no better than its object. Faith in faith is nothing but positive thinking. If you put faith in positive thinking, you are going to become discouraged.There are some who teach that if you will simply believe God for something, He will give you that thing. That is simply not true.If you try to apply that teaching to your life, after awhile when those things don’t fall into your lap, Satan is going to say, “You really don’t have what it takes.”

And don’t get the idea that because your faith is weak, your prayers are not reaching heaven. Weak faith in God is better than the strong faith in anything else. Faith is what counts. It is not the size of your faith. It is the object of your faith that really counts. Every one of us has faith in the natural realm. We believe chairs will hold us up, planes will take us where we need to go, and the food we’re served is safe to eat.

But that’s not the kind of faith to which Paul refers when he says, “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God” (Romans 10:17). This is Biblical faith, and it occurs in the supernatural realm. You cannot generate that kind of faith. You cannot clench your fist, grit your teeth, and say you are going to believe.

No one can believe in God unless God enables him to believe. And the only way you can believe in God is to hear from His Word. Without a word from God, you have no basis for faith.

Faith is not a leap in the dark. Instead, faith is a step into the light.
