Hebrews 11:1- 6

Faith Pleases God


Hebrews 11:1-6 now faith is the assurance of things hoped for the conviction of things not seen for by it the men of old gained approval by faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible by faith Abel offered to God a better sacrifice than Cain through which he obtained the testimony that he was righteous God testifying about his gifts and through faith though he is dead, he still speaks by faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death and he was not found because God took him up for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God and 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 seek Him and one version said those who diligently seek Him so what is it that pleases God I don’t know about you I definitely want to be pleasing to God so it tells us right here what pleases God faith pleases God what is faith we have several definitions here I love an amplified bible version definition of faith right here in Hebrews 11: 1 amplified says this faith is the leaning of the entire personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power wisdom and goodness so absolute trust in 3 qualities of God His character His power His wisdom and His goodness leaning your entire personality on that faith is believing that God will do exactly what he said he would do again God doesn’t move in random ways God moves according to His word He does exactly what He said faith to me God gave me an analogy one time it’s like turning on a television set and you receive a signal that’s been beamed out from the TV station now the TV receiver your television set it doesn’t create that picture it just receives the picture if there wasn’t a signal beamed out of the television station the TV set couldn’t manifest anything on the other hand if there’s no signal beamed pardon me on the other hand if a signal is beamed out and there’s no TV set to receive it the signal just remains floating in the air as it were and it’s never manifest never comes into being so what does it take to bring into manifestation a signal sent out by the TV station that’s received by a television receiver and brought into manifestation you and I are like television receivers God has beamed things out of heaven for your future for your life for your finances for your business for your family God has released things already spoken from heaven what is required for them to manifest a receiver a television receiver who grabs hold of them believes that what God said is true and that is what releases manifestation of the things that God has said many times people have trouble believing that God will do what he said but what this scripture said is that you can absolutely trust God faith is the assurance of things hoped for the conviction of things not seen television waves are not seen they’re probably passing through the very room where you are right now and you don’t see them but if you had a television set and turned them on and tuned to that station you could see those television waves faith is believing that the television waves exist being a good receiver receiving them how do you receive them begin to speak forth with your mouth what God has said begin to agree in your heart with what God has said that’s faith believing that God will do exactly what He said He would do and that releases the supernatural to become manifest in the natural so the question is in what area of your life today has God given you a promise has God said things about your family about your marriage about your future about your finances about your children but yet you don’t see it manifest as a matter of fact maybe just the opposite of what God said is manifest what do you do about that begin to agree with what God has said speak out of your mouth what God has said thank God for what He said already being manifest believe in your heart that what God has said is exactly what God will bring to pass and by faith you’ll move into that realm of releasing the supernatural into the natural and see these very things and you’ll please God, please God so faith which is believing what God has said not what other people have said that pleases God remember when 12 spies went into the land back in the book of numbers 10 of them gave a bad report they said we’ll never conquer those guys 2 of them saw the same thing as the other 10 and they said no we can conquer them easily why those 2 guys had faith they believed what God had said the other 10 just believe what they saw before their eyes they were displeasing to God the 2 were pleasing to God so how do you become pleasing to God believe what he has said and walk in it so let’s pray Father today would you reveal every area where you’ve spoken a word LORD I believe what you’ve said would you just take a moment even right now and just speak back to the LORD what He said LORD I believe what You said is true I receive it I embrace it I believe it and Father I join my faith with my brother, with my sister today that what you said is absolutely true we trust you 100% thank you Father that what you said is exactly what you will do and we believe it in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
