God’s Very Best


And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. -Hebrews 11:6 ESV

If everything you seek is easily gained, you will never have a need for faith and you will never have an opportunity for your faith to grow. As Hebrews 11:6 says, God rewards those who earnestly seek Him. The word “earnestly” means “serious in intention, purpose, or effort,” Instead of just glancing in His direction, God is looking for those who will put all their effort and attention into seeking after His desires for their lives. God is looking for those who will seek and keep seeking.

Have doors been shut in your life recently? Be encouraged to stand firm and declare to God, “I don’t know which door or window you want me to walk through, but I’m not going to move until You show me! You promised Your very best for my life and I won’t settle for anything less!”

God desires to give you His very best. Remember those you are standing with who are quoted in Hebrews 11:33-34, “who through faith conquered kingdoms…gained what was promised…shut the mouths of lions…whose weakness turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle…”

Prayer Focus

  • Pray that you would continue to trust God, because His plans are far greater than you can imagine.
  • Ask God for insight of why certain doors in your life have been closed.
