Feb Fast Day 17: Nothing Is Impossible with God




After the birth of Seth to Adam and Eve, people began to call on the name of the Lord (see Genesis 4:26). Enoch was born many years later, and thousands of years after his departure from this earth, Hebrews records: “By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God” (Hebrews 11:5, KJV).


What was it about Enoch that was different from those before him? What about his life was so pleasing to God? The answer is also found in Hebrews! “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 (Hebrews 11:6, KJV).”


Now, if I were to choose what could be said of me, I would want my testimony to be “he pleased God.” Notice that Enoch didn’t try to please people. In fact, Jude records that Enoch prophesied in a manner that would have made him very unpopular with the party crowd (see Jude 14–15). Enoch’s primary concern was walking in faith, which is what pleases God.


According to Hebrews 11:6, it is reasonable to say that Enoch…

believed God;

diligently sought God;

and he was rewarded!


If you want to please God, believe God. Take Him at His Word. Remember, faith is the evidence of things unseen (see Hebrews 11:1)!
