Hebrew 11:1-2 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ANCIENTS were commended for.
Before we set out to seek for a job or ask for an academic sponsorship or whatever else where a curriculum vitae is needed, we usually take time to put down all our details together in documented records. In the best possible manner, we represent ourselves as the best person for the job in question or the sponsorship. No one in their right mind ever writes about their failures or struggles in the CV. And of course, it is difficult for a potential employer or financier to determine who you really are in person apart from what you portray on paper.
Have you ever wondered how your CV would look like if God needed one before He send you out on a mission? If so, what would you write? In any case, He knows you well in and out and you cannot lie to Him anyway. While that may be the case, the truth is, God never and will never require a CV from us. For the records, no human CV can be good enough to qualify you in His eyes.
But the good news is, GOD has only one requirement for hire…and that is FAITH. Hebrew 11:6 says; And without faith it is IMPOSSIBLE to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek HIM.
Do you want to be commended like the ANCIENTS…that is for GOD to represent you as being worthy of regard or confidence…then look up to the sky for He is waiting for you.
For the eyes of the Lord range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are FULLY COMMITTED TO HIM. 2 Chronicles 16:9
Are you righteous in Christ? Then you qualify. Are you a God-pleaser? You qualify. Are you a sin-hater? You qualify. BY FAITH, YOU QUALIFY. Be encouraged!
