THE FAITH SERIES 6
THE THREE INGREDIENTS OF FAITH: THOSE WHO DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM
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. (Hebrews 11:6 KJV)
Now we have come to the third ingredient of faith. It is my sincere hope that things are just a bit clearer and your understanding better. The spiritual can be taught and understood. The third ingredient talks about DILIGENTLY SEEKING GOD.
Anybody can seek God when their back is against the wall, but only few would make this a lifestyle and that is what separates the boys from the men. If you don't want to be a faith cripple you must exercise your faith muscle consistently and constantly, this is what pleases God. When you are in faith , it means you are constantly in touch with Him. There is no way you can fellowship with God except through faith because He is not accessible to the five physical senses.
Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. (Hebrews 10:38 KJV)
The same thought is seen in Romans 1:17, Galatians 3:11 and Habakkuk 2:4. If we are to grow in grace we have to live by faith because spiritual things can only be accessed through faith (Romans 5:2). Don't forget that God is a Spirit and blessings are spiritual ( John 4:24 and Ephesians 1:3 respectively). Healing comes from the spirit , so living diligently by faith gives you ready access to divine health. You don't have to be sick , however if you fall sick you don't have to stay that way.(Capsules 9,11. Romans 8:11). The same applies for all the covenant promises and provision
To recap, those who come to God must believe that GOD is who He says He is, He rewards and wants us to be in constant fellowship with Him.
IF YOU ARE TO TALK THE TALK AND WALK THE WALK, YOU HAVE TO WALK AND LIVE BY FAITH
