(How To Obtain An Excellent Report From God)

TO THE BIBLE: Hebrews 11:2 AMPC
“For by [faith—trust and holy fervor born of faith] the men of old had divine testimony borne to them and obtained a good report.”

How would you like to receive a good report from God? Our opening verse reveals that the elders in our spiritual family obtained good commendations from God through faith.

If you desire God’s approval and seek praise from Him, it must be through your expressions of faith. No wonder He says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him…” (Hebrews 11:6).

The Bible says, “By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God” (Hebrews 11:8-10).

As a result, James 2:23 says, ‘…”Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God.’

How about Enoch? Genesis 5:24 says, “And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” Hebrews 11:5 tells us more; it says, “By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God.” Hallelujah!

The heroes of faith listed in Hebrews 11, such as Abel, Noah, Samuel, Isaac, Sarah, Joseph, Moses, and others, all obtained a commendation through their faith.

It’s noteworthy that although they didn’t receive the promise in their lifetime, God has provided something better for us.

As Hebrews 11:39-40 (TPT) conveys, “These were the true heroes, commended for their faith, yet they lived in hope without receiving the fullness of what was promised them. But now God has invited us to live in something better than what they had—faith’s fullness….”

Therefore, we have no excuse. Let your faith produce results daily. Embrace the faith life. Practice God’s Word, for faith is acting on the Word! This is the way to obtain an excellent report from God and walk in the glory and blessings of Christ.

My faith grows by the Word, prevails, and triumphs over contrary winds and opposition. My life is regulated by the eternal realities of the Kingdom, and the blessings therein are unleashed into my world. My faith works by love, and I obtain a good report from God as I live victoriously every day, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
