Daily devotional: Live in faith

Scripture
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
Hebrews 11:6 NIV

Observation
We must not live in doubt of God and just hope for the best when the end comes. And it is not even good enough to just believe that He exists; we need to really believe that He will reward those who earnestly seek Him.

Application
Live in faith in my walk with God. Take hold of the reality that God will reward me because I earnestly seek Him. Live as a foreigner and stranger on earth, looking forward to the heavenly city God is preparing for us.

Prayer
Lord Jesus, thank you so much for creating us, for coming to the earth as a man, for living a perfect life, for showing us how to live and for showing us the way to eternal life, and for making the ultimate sacrifice so that our sins could be forgiven and so we can enjoy eternal life with You. Thank you that You are preparing a reward for me, that You have in store amazing things that I may get a glimpse of on earth or I may just get to keep looking forward to until I see you in Your glory. I love you and go forward earnestly seeking You!
