Peace with those whom He is pleased // 16-12-19

“It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.” Hebrews‬ ‭11:6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

The angels sang over the shepherds, ‘…on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.’ So I’m asking, what is it that pleases God and why does that bring peace? And what I’m discovering is that it is faith that pleases God! Not just a belief in God, but faith that depends, relies and trusts in Him; trusting that He loves me, trusting that He has saved me, through the death and resurrection of Jesus, trusting that He has my life in His hands, trusting enough to follow and to be obedient to His Word; Faith that says I love You back, and I’ll go where You want me to go and I’ll do what You want me to do and I’ll say what You want me to say, walking with Him! That’s faith that pleases God, because then He gets a real loving relationship with me, willing and available to be used for His glorious Kingdom purposes! You want to experience peace? Then why not trust Him and put your faith in Him today? 🙏🏼😊
