Reward

 Hebrews 11:6 – “he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

Psalm 18:20 “according to the cleanness of my hands he has rewarded me.”

Psaml 18:24 “The LORD has rewarded me according to my righteousness.”

Ephesians  6:8 “because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do”

All throughout scripture we see that God is someone who loves to reward his children. Ima be honest, when I think of God rewarding me I’m looking for some unexpected cash, a snow day, a crazy sweet ministry opportunity, or for the Minnesota Timberwolves to finally win a game (still waitin’ on that last one). Whatever it is, my point is I’m looking for something new, fresh, or tangible.

While I 100% believe that God does reward people in those areas such as in their finances, jobs, ministry opportunities, I think a lot of times we miss out on the biggest reward of all. And that’s our relationship with the Creator of the universe. At one point, there was no way, there was a veil. God wasn’t on easy access. But because of the cross, we can experience salvation, which is the greatest reward of all. What makes the reward so great is that we don’t deserve it, and we’ll never do anything in our lifetime that’s going to change that. God is our rewarder. Thank Him, cause He is also your reward.
