My flesh and my heart fail; but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
— Psalm 73:26 (NKJV)
Having a relationship with God through Jesus Christ is our greatest reward in life. Serving Him is a privilege, not an obligation. Take a moment to ponder how great it is to have Jesus as the center of your life. He is with you all the time.
God promises us rewards, but we should never serve Him in order to get something. We should serve Him because we love and appreciate Him. God hears and answers our prayers and helps us in our difficulties. He forgives our sins and grants us strength when we are weak. He guides us and does many other wonderful things for us. And …He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV).
We can expect rewards when we get to heaven. Although we don’t comprehend what they will be, we know that anything the Lord does for us will be wonderful. He says that when He returns for His people, He will bring His rewards with Him to …give to every one according to his work (Revelation 22:12 NKJV).
Be excited and look for these rewards, but always remember that God is our greatest reward. He is our portion in life and our inheritance. Live for Him and enjoy Him each day.
Prayer of the Day: Father, You are my greatest reward in life. Thank You for being my friend and Savior. In Jesus’ name, amen.
