But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
-Faith is a symbol of our belief in Christ and without it; we cannot please God. Unlike Barnabas and the other apostles; Ananias and Sapphira though they believed; did not fully exercise their faith. After selling their land, they did not report part of their proceeds but conspired to lie to the Holy Spirit which led to their death (Acts 5:1-11). Moses like many other patriarchs of faith refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter, choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God rather than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin, esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward (Heb 11:24-26). It is through faith that we look to Christ the rewarder of all of us who diligently seek Him. Jesus reminds us that if we have faith and do not doubt we will move mountains and whatever we ask in prayer, believing, we will receive it (Mat 21:21-22). We are called to exercise our faith in God as we diligently seek Him with our focus on the reward which He won for us at Calvary.
You are the rewarder of all those who diligently seek You Jesus; have mercy on us. Increase our faith Holy Spirit and deliver us from every evil desire may jeopardize our relationship with You. Forgive us Holy Spirit for the many times we have lied to You and strengthen us in Your love. Help us to always follow You Jesus looking to the reward that You gave us free through Your death and resurrection. May Your grace Lord be with all those who are jobless, struggling in business, unmarried, orphaned, childless, divorced, widows, widowers, depressed, sick and on the whole world. Look at us with mercy Jesus and answer all our prayers. You have promised to multiply us and to bless us Father for we are the seed of Abraham through Christ; we trust in You. All glory honour, praise, riches, strength and power belongs to You Jesus, now and forever. Amen
