Daily Word for Tuesday, July 21, 2015
God is a rewarder. You cannot participate in His Plan and Purpose and not receive the blessing of His Grace in your life. Hebrews 11:16 gives greater clarity to God’s reward program.
Hebrews 11:6 – But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.
This scripture makes four observations pertaining to God’s reward system:
1. Pleasing faith moves God.
• “Without faith it is impossible to please God.”
• Rewarding people who fail to meet the standard is codependency.
2. Participation with God.
• “For he who comes to God.”
• Relationship is often the tipping point related to reward.
3. Proper perspective of God.
• ‘Must believe that He is.”
• God’s reality is the basis of my belief.
4. Persistence and productivity are related.
• “He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”
• I cannot be productive without persistence and I will not persist where there is no result.
Dear friend, meditate on this scripture today and give God an opportunity to further your revelation and appropriation of these principles in your life.
Peace and blessings!
