And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Heb. 11:6
If we focus on the pleasing and the rewarding we make interaction with God more about our behavior, what we want or what we get from God, and whether we are “doing it right.” If we focus on the believing and the seeking our interaction becomes about His personality, His responses, and His revelation of Himself to us. The reward for believing and seeking is relationship not a trophy.
Lord, I seek greater awareness of Your presence and Your agenda as I experience each moment of this day.
