Hebrews 11:6 KJV – But without faith [it is] impossible to please [him]: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and [that] he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
In order to have faith we must know all that we can about God. That is why the Bible says ‘faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God’ [Romans 10:17] It does not say that faith comes by hearing a testimony; they are to be shared to enhance our faith. It is the Word of God that is the foundation of our faith.
Hebrews 11:6 says that when we come to God ‘we must believe that God “is”’, alive and that He is able and willing to reward us according to: 1) our knowing Him; 2) what He wants to do for us; and, 3) that He will do what we ask Him, using the faith that we have according to the Word of God that we know.
In order to increase our faith, we need to increase our Word level. It is our faith in action that pleases God.
