without faith it is impossible to please god

The Sin of Unbelief  

Before looking at another thing, let’s look at the sin that keeps us from pleasing God. This is the sin of unbelief. Sometimes we tend to overlook this sin as being lessor to lying, lusting, murdering, etc. However to Yahweh it is totally grievous. We must confess this sin, and we must not tolerate unbelief. 

Romans 14:23 But he who is uncertain [about eating a particular thing] is condemned if he eats, because he is not acting from faith. Whatever is not from faith is sin [whatever is done with doubt is sinful].”  

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him.” 

As we talked about in the beginning of these “Days of Awe” we are supposed to walk in the crown of His glory. We are supposed to reign in life as kings and queens. Sin’s stain is the only thing that can keep us from inheriting that crown to wear for Him. As we come to the last days of this purification process, let’s spend time meditating and remembering who we are and what price He paid to give us crowns to wear to reign over ALL the power of the enemy.  

Revelations 5:9-10 “And they sang a new song: Worthy! Take the scroll, open its seals. Slain! Paying in blood, you bought men and women, Bought them back from all over the earth,  Bought them back for God. Then you made them a Kingdom, Priests for our God, 
Priest-kings to rule over the earth.” 

Lamentations 5:16 The crown has fallen from our head [our honor is covered with dust]! Woe to us, for we have sinned!” 

Prayer: Father, forgive me for any and all unbelief. Thank you for redeeming our sins by the sacrifice of Your Only Son! Help me to be the ruler His sacrifice provided for me and wear the crown His blood appropriated for me.  

Confession: I will not doubt You Lord!
