Blessings of Sincerely Seeking God

Faith shows the reality of what we hope for;

it is the evidence of things we cannot see.

By faith we understand that the entire universe

was formed at God’s command,

that what we now see did not come from anything 

that can be seen.

And it is impossible to please God without faith.

Anyone who wants to come to him

must believe that God exists

and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.

Hebrews 11:1, 3, 6

Blessings of Knowing Where To Find New Strength

…The LORD is the everlasting God,

the Creator of all the earth.

He never grows weak or weary.

No one can measure the depths of his understanding.

He gives power to the weak

and strength to the powerless.

Even youths will become weak and tired,

and young men will fall in exhaustion.

But those who trust in the LORD will find new strength.

They will soar high on wings like eagles.

They will run and not grow weary.

They will walk and not faint.

Isaiah 40:28-31

Blessings of Personally Knowing The Source of Salvation

While Jesus was here on earth,

he offered prayers and pleadings,

with a loud cry and tears,

to the one who could rescue him from death.

And God heard his prayers because of his deep reverence for God.

Even though Jesus was God’s Son,

he learned obedience from the things he suffered.

In this way,

God qualified him as a perfect High Priest,

and he became the source of eternal salvation

for all those who obey him.

Hebrews 5:7-9
