Really real

“Anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him”  Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)

Having faith doesn’t mean we merely follow a belief system or biblical philosophy of life. Instead, true faith is the belief that God really exists. He is right here. He is “really real”.

Many times we say prayers out of habit, or just going through the motions. True faith means being convinced that God is right here and listening. I once asked a young man what he would do if Jesus walked into the room right now, sat down beside him, and said, “so, what can I do for you today?” How would you talk to Him, what would you talk about?

Those are intriguing questions, but if we think about it, that is the way it is with God. He is looking at us, listening, longing to communicate. When we see it this way, it makes it much easier to “earnestly seek Him”. 


Heavenly Father, I know You are right here listening to me. Thank You that You will “reward” me for “seeking” You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
