Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done.
— Revelation 22:12 (NIV)
Sometimes, we try our best in certain situations because of our love for the Lord, but things don’t seem to work out in our favor. When this happens, we can easily become discouraged. We may need to do the right thing for a long period of time before we see the right results, but as I always say, “Payday is coming.”
God never forgets our labor for Him. The Bible says, He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV), and there is great reward for those who keep and obey His teachings (Psalm 19:11 NKJV).
Some of our rewards are realized here on earth, and some are set aside for us in heaven. We don’t know exactly what these rewards are, but we know that God is good and that everything He prepares for us is also good. I encourage you to look forward to your reward from God. Be steadfast, be strong in the Lord, and continue to do what is right. You will never regret it.
Prayer of the Day: Father, thank You for Your goodness in my life. I look forward to my reward, not because I deserve anything, but because You are faithful. Help me remain strong and never give up. In Jesus’ name, amen.
