A 40-Day Faith Challenge
Jesus tells us in Matthew 17:20, that faith the size of a tiny mustard seed is powerful. So, let's plant those seeds and reap the harvest.
The Seed: God's Word
Cleansing Rain: A Reflection on God's Word
By nature, I am a people-pleaser. I want people to like me, to rave about how nice I am, and ask me to all the girls’ night shenanigans. I want to be my students' favorite teacher, my parents’ pride and joy, my husband's crowning jewel, my sons’ beloved confidant- you get the idea.
It’s not necessarily a bad thing to want to please the people we love, it’s just abundantly more important to be a God-pleaser. And thankfully, God makes it perfectly clear just how to do it – have faith!
Faith is a non-negotiable. Only believers can please God. It begins when we are covered by the righteousness of Christ and continues as we live life seeking Him. A deep and meaningful relationship with God requires trusting in His promises, following His ways, and having confidence in His sovereignty. We must have a believing faith and a life lived by faith to please God.
