5 January 2023 ‘Without faith it is impossible to please Him.’ Hebrews 11:6 NKJV

The Bible says, ‘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’ (v.6 NKJV). Here is something God can’t do: be pleased without faith! Twelve spies entered the promised land, but only two came back and said, ‘We are well able to overcome it’ (Numbers 13:30 NKJV). God had promised it to them, but the majority thought it couldn’t be done. People who think ‘possible’ create forward-looking, optimistic pictures of the future in their own minds, as well as in the minds of others. And the opposite is true. Sam Ewing said, ‘Nothing is so embarrassing as watching someone do something that you said couldn’t be done.’ Believing we can doesn’t necessarily guarantee that we will. But believing we can’t guarantees we won’t! So how’s your approach to life? When you face the unknown, the undone, or the untried, do you focus on all the things that can go wrong or all the things that can go right? Ballistic rocket pioneer Wernher von Braun said, ‘I have learned to use the word “impossible” with the greatest caution.’ He was the scientist who made it possible for the first person to walk on the moon! John Andrew Holmes said: ‘Never tell a young person that something cannot be done. God may have been waiting centuries for somebody ignorant enough of the impossible to do that very thing.’ If we want to achieve something, let’s give ourselves permission to believe it’s possible, and trust God for the rest.
