Let me tell you-when you are doing a GOOD work for the Lord you can believe He will BLESS you! Hebrews 6:10 (New King James Version) says, “For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister.” When you do the work of God, you may not get recognition or a reward from PEOPLE-in fact, some people may even talk about you! However, we know that God is not like people. He is good and faithful; and in His goodness and faithfulness He will indeed reward you for doing His good work!
Hebrews 6:12 (NKJV) goes on to say that we should not slack off in doing the work of God, but continue to complete His good work, holding on to FAITH and PATIENCE until we receive the promises of God. You see-your reward may not come today, next month, or even next year; but this verse is telling you to continue in patience and faith until God fulfils the promise! All throughout the Bible you will find stories of how God made promises and fulfilled them EVERY TIME!
So why would He suddenly decide to quit fulfilling His promises? He wouldn’t do that! Numbers 23:19 (NKJV) assures us that God does NOT lie; everything He has spoken He will make it good! Now come on, some of us believe without a doubt the LIES that PEOPLE tell us! Let’s start believing what God says to us and about us-He has already proven Himself to be true time and time again! So I urge you to get up and do whatever God has told you to do! God GUARANTEES that He will bless you for doing His good work; and His guarantees are ones you can stand firmly on!
Say this short prayer:
Lord, I ask you to help me surrender to your plan for my life. Help me to get up and do the things you want me to do. Give me spiritual boldness and help me to take delight in doing your good works. Help me to understand that you will indeed bless me for doing your will. And help me to patiently wait on my reward from you. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen!
As always, I recommend you study the Word for yourself. I would suggest you read the whole chapter of Hebrews that I referenced in this message and also read the story of Abraham in the Old Testament. Like/Comment/Follow/Share
