The Man who Escaped Death!

A mustard seed of faith was deposited in each of us and everyday God gives us opportunities to develop our faith. Through test, trials, ups, downs, highs and lows God is really saying, “Do you trust Me?” When things get difficult and we call on God through faith a.) it pleases God and b.) our seed of faith increases. IOW, trusting God is pleasing to God! Hebrews 10:38 says, “The just shall live by faith. And I take no pleasure in one that turns back.” Hebrews 11:6 of the MSG paraphrased this fundamental precept well, “By an act of faith, Enoch skipped death completely. “They looked all over and couldn’t find him because God had taken him.” We know on the basis of reliable testimony that before he was taken “he pleased God.” It’s impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that He exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him.” Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it by the handle of anxiety, or by the handle of faith. We may not skip death but if Enoch chose the latter, so can we!
