38 But My righteous one will live by faith; and if he shrinks back, I will take no pleasure in him.”-Hebrews 10:38, BSB
What is faith? And why is it important to God?
Faith not only means to believe, but it gives the meaning of trusting one’s life into the hands of God. Putting your faith in Christ is to accept His sacrifice on the cross for you and choosing to follow Jesus wherever He leads even though you don’t know where.
Having faith in the Scriptures means to believe everything that is written in it without doubting one single word of it.
Having faith in prayer means to believe that God will hear all of your prayers and will answer them according to His will and His timing for your benefit and His glory.
Now, do you see that without faith, you cannot please God?
God’s Word is the source that gives you saving faith in Jesus Christ for eternal life. If you reject the Scriptures, you will not get saved.
Finally, those who at one time professed faith in Jesus Christ, the Scriptures, and then to turn around [180 degrees] and start to go back to where they were once before they knew God, God sees it as one who never loved Him.
To sum it all up with the title of this post, the Book of Job says it best.
Friends, Satan wants you to curse God, which is translated to; losing your faith in Him. The devil brings this about through depression, which causes a Christian to succumb to hopelessness. Resist his temptation and stand firm in your faith by hanging on to Jesus’ promises as found in the Scriptures.
