“But without faith it is impossible to please Him (God), for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Heb. 11:6)

What about my good works; the charity I gave;
How about my attendance in the church?
I never missed my tithe
How about my position as overseer over my church?
Another says ‘I build a church for the Lord”
The other says “I am a professor in theology”
Do they count?
All are human proofs of pleasing God
Though, an added value if for the glory of God
Faith pleases God first; others things follow as enhancements

Humanity independence and civilization
A brutal dependence on the enemy of mankind
Satan, through self-will and human liberation
A free for all system called norms of the day
A shift from reliance on the creator of all existence
To reliance on man’s ever perishable creations
Can you impress God out of His dependence?
Faith in Him is the main

Does human knowledge count before God?
Pharaoh’s Wise men failed in the day of their test
Daniel’s dependence on God excels him above others
The more independence of human knowledge
The more disastrous of its fruit
Knowledge out of His will counts to nothing,
God does not share His glory with anything
Does human knowledge count before Him?
Faith in Him is more pleasing

Can your wealth and riches influence God?
Can your tithe and offering please Him?
God is not Balaam who covets unrighteous gain
Are wealth and riches not his provision for righteous use?
But now, a man’s quest for wickedness
You cannot influence God with anything
Faith in Him is the main

Can your accomplishment move God?
Position or status must subject to His knowledge
The greatest living book, the Bible, states,
“The Most High rules in the kingdom of men,
Gives it to whomever He will,
And sets over it the lowest of men”
He crowns who He wishes with glory and honor
He is above all accomplishment
He lives above all
He is no respecter of any ungodly accomplishment
Faith in Him makes accomplishment meaningful
Faith first, other things follow

Level of faith is an added value
Faith stems your relationship with God
The Word feeds your faith to grow
The more Word, the higher your level of faith
The Word enlightens, illuminates and transforms the mind
The more Word you have the more you love to seek Him

In conclusion
God rewards those who have faith in Him
Those who diligently seek Him
Those who put their trust in Him;
Those who delight in Him;
Those who commit their ways to Him;
Those who rest in Him: and
Those who wait patiently for Him
Faith in Him makes you to prosper in all your ways
2Chro. 26:5
