“And it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that God exists and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6 NLT)
Hello, Family, we are continuing our series a matter of the heart. If you are just joining us in this series go back and read yesterday's devotion first. Yesterday we saw that Able was acting out of his faith when he gave his sacrifice to God and Cain did not. The opening scripture all the more confirms that Cain's heart was not in the right place from the start. If Cain would have acted out of faith he would have sought some direction from God. Instead of giving a sacrifice based off of what he thought was good.
When we act out of our faith in God, we are not looking to our own self for direction, we are not relying on what we think is good. We are looking up to God and relying upon his word on what to do. Now before you say, “But Cain had no Bible, no scrolls from the temple!” Cain had God’s spoken word. God spoke to Cain and able just as he spoke to Adam and eve.
Cain’s heart was not moving out of faith and tomorrow we will see how his heart matter only got worse when God did not accept his sacrifice.
Much Love & God Bless
