Hebrews 11:6 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.
Read this verse very carefully. It does not say that without faith it is hard or difficult to please God. This verse tells us that it is impossible to please him without faith.
First of all we must believe that He is God. It is not enough to believe that He is a god. We must believe that He is exactly Who the Bible proclaims Him to be. He is God and there is none else.
If we are to receive the benefit of God's promises we must realize (by faith) that God has our best interest at heart in all matters. Sin is sin because it is bad for us, it is not bad for us because it is sin. If it were for our benefit it would not be sin.
We must realize that God created all things. It is when man takes them to extreme and perverts them that they become sin.
If we diligently seek God and seek His will (we must pray and study our Bible) He is a Rewarder of us.
