Without Faith

 

He rewards those who seek,

And believe in His Holy Name.

Without faith there is nothing.

To believe is to gain.

We gain God’s blessings,

And His favor for heaven above,

If we believe in all He is,

And the perfection of His love.

 

His love is full of mercy.

His heart is full of grace.

We must believe in His Word,

And seek His Holy Face.

We have to step into the unknown.

We have to believe the Bible is true.

Faith will keep you going,

And grace will follow you.

 

We cannot see the future,

But we know Who holds our hand.

We have a loving Savior,

Who will guide us to His land.

When we step out in faith,

We will never be alone.

We have His Spirit with us,

To guide and lead us home.

 

We are destined for heaven.

We have to believe it’s there.

We have to acknowledge our God,

And His love we must share.

Faith believes without proof.

We have to believe it’s true.

We cannot see what’s ahead,

But we know God will pull us through.

 

We have to trust in our God,

Every step of the way,

To get to our eternal home,

And be with Jesus to stay.

 

TRW 6-25-17

Hebrews 11:6

1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

2For by it the elders obtained a good report.

3Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

4By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.

5By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.

6But 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.

 

The Bible says that every man is given a seed of faith. It is up to man to use that little seed of faith to grow their faith. The smallest seed can produce a big crop, that when it is planted, it will produce more seed and grow a bigger crop. This great chapter in the Bible is so uplifting, because it shows the “saints of old”, who had faith in the Word of God, and acted upon it, were protected from harm and prospered. Faith takes action and faith sees results. A person who has faith in God will praise Him for all the things He has done for them that they are aware of and know that God has protected them, even when they were not aware of potential harm.
