Believe That God Is

"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)

What a wonderful verse of promise from the Lord. This verse has meant a lot to me lately. At the end of each year, the Lord speaks to me and gives me direction for the coming year. In 2007, He is asking me to diligently seek Him through studying His Word and more times of intimacy with Him in prayer. God promises us that He will reward those who diligently seek Him.

As I read Heb 11:6 this morning I thanked the Lord that He IS... I'm glad the writer of Hebrews did not finish that thought. Our God is so many things that one word could never describe. He is our exceedingly great reward, He is our shield and strong tower, He is our strength, He is our joy, He is our Savior. He is everything to us that He promised us He would be. Whatever our need, whatever our situation may be, Jesus is able to meet us there when we believe. He is all that we need!

As you think about Jesus this Christmas season, take time to thank Him that He IS!
