God loves us and wants to reward us, but first we need to know Him. We can know Him through studying His Word, but it also takes faith! Through faith, we can believe He is who He claims to be. Through faith we can draw near to Him, His love, and His forgiveness, grace, and mercy. When we seek Him, wanting to know Him, we can please Him. Pleasing God begins with one essential step: faith!
Faith is essential in drawing near to and pleasing God!
Thank You for loving me and for giving me Your Word. Help me to have faith that brings me near to You and pleases You. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
