I believe with all my heart that God wants you to live a life of favor. I believe He wants your life to be radically blessed with favor and increase. I believe God wants you to prosper and be favor-conscious in everything you do, giving Him glory. It’s His promise to us in the Bible.
I know the devil wants you to believe that “it’s never going to happen,” but the devil is a liar. Don’t lose your sense of expectancy, just because it hasn’t happened yet. I sense in my spirit that God has some surprises in store for you this month. Yes, this very month.
The reward, the blessing and the promise are about to be released into your life in ways you can’t even imagine. It’s going to be sudden, unexpected and extraordinary – completely unforgettable. In fact, you need to get ready now, preparing yourself because your reward has been dispatched straight from heaven. It’s on the way.
I am literally sitting on the edge of my seat right now because the “thing” you have been waiting on, is on its way. God is about to reward you – big time. Your haters cannot block, stop or prevent this blessing from getting to you. More importantly, you will not be affected by their drama, gossip or negativity when the blessing finally arrives. God did not consult them before releasing the blessing, so their input does not matter one way or the other.
The Bible says God is a rewarder (Hebrews 11:6). We are told, “The righteous will be rewarded in the earth” (Proverbs 11:31). Not just in heaven, but in the earth. The assertion that God is a master at rewarding us is founded on the fact that God is so full and so completely self-sufficient that He overflows. If we do not fully believe God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him, then our prayers serve very little purpose.
As Christians, we must be persuaded that God delights in giving rewards to His children. This is a truth you must believe and make your own. You must believe it and receive it in your spirit that God loves to reward His beloved.
Personally, I love how God presented Himself to Abraham in the Bible. God said to Abraham that He (God) was his (Abraham’s) exceedingly great reward (Genesis 15:1). God Himself is His people’s reward! No doubt Abraham considered it a prize to become the father of many nations, but God said there was something even greater—the glory coming down in the Person of the Father to minister favor to His beloved.
Receiving a reward is a wonderful experience. It offers recognition for something attained or accomplished. What is even more significant is the source of the reward. Can you imagine what it is like to receive a reward from the Creator of all things! That is precisely what happens for those who seek Him.
Hebrews 11:6 tells us that seeking God results in a reward from God Himself. So seeking God must be a very special endeavor indeed for God to present a reward to the faithful. And though we don’t do it merely for the reward, we would be foolish not to seek Him. Bottom line, when we “do” our part in seeking God, we will receive what’s “due” to us.
God is a recompenser, a remunerator – that is, a God who pays well for faithfulness. When you constantly and earnestly put in concerted effort to do the will of God, He records it for posterity and rewards you greatly in due season, so get ready to receive! The best is yet to come.
