There’s no doubt about it: Our faith pleases God. And the lack of it displeases God.
In the Bible portion we read today, Jesus marveled at the faith of the centurion. We also read that he marveled at the unbelief of people he encountered in his ministry – because of their unbelief he “could not a mighty work there.”
How does Jesus respond to your faith? Does He marvel at it? Or is He constrained from doing mighty work because of your unbelief?
When we don’t exercise faith, we displease God. On the other hand, when we exercise faith, we please God. It’s as simple as that.
Choosing a faith response gives God the opportunity to display His power. When you see His power in action, your faith is built up. And it gives God the chance to work in and through you to accomplish His purposes.
What are you going to choose today – fear or faith? How will you please God today?
