And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to Him must believe that God exists and that He rewards those who sincerely seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6 NLT)
In our day, most of us have come to believe that God is a rewarder. We believe He loves us and wants us to be blessed. This verse gives us an interesting take on what prompts God to reward us. We have to believe that He exists: Check. We have to believe that He rewards us: Check. But notice what He rewards us for: Seeking Him. What does that mean?
I suspect the phrase “seeking God” paints different pictures depending on our background. Some see fasting and praying. Some see reading a daily devotional. Some see a Christian church, others a yoga studio. Today is Sunday. Consider making yourself eligible for God’s rewards: Seek Him. At the very least, for those who believe in ” the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” that means getting out of bed, doing an attitude adjustment, then heading for the assembly of the saints and listening for the voice of God as He speaks by His Spirit through His Body.
