Troubled Times (COVID-19 pandemic series)
Do You Believe In God?
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.
Faith requires Trust, and without Faith it is impossible to please God. During these times of distress and conflict, we must walk in Faith. Faith, based on the belief we have in Jesus Christ pleases God because Christ made the sacrifice for our self-inflicted nonsense. God recognizes those who seek him, diligently seek Him, put the "e" in effort and sincerely seek Him. Lip service will not qualify for God's rewards.
The God Who Sees— Genesis 16:13. Hagar was Sarah's handmaiden, who became pregnant with Abraham's child to fulfill the promise of God in their minds. After the child was conceived, things became strained between her and Sarah. She was friendless, homeless, and pregnant, not knowing what would become of her; she was laid down by a fountain in the wilderness because Sarah was jealous. There, a messenger of God appeared to her to give her comfort and to speak of God's grace and mercy, and for this, we give thanks. For the peace of God that proves Himself beyond our engrams, we provide him with praise. We decree and declare a blessing upon those who can not see God but believe in His works so that; sinners will repent and find salvation in pleasing God. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
