Daily Devotional: A Prophet's Reward

A Promise For You From Bible Promises:

Topic: A Prophet's Reward

He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. Matthew 20:41. Read: Matt 10:40-42

Respect is reciprocal. If you smile at me, I will definitely smile at you, if you honour me, I will also honour you in return. God told Eli, for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed. 1 Sam 2:30b. And one of the ways to honour God is by honouring His prophet. Prophets are God's representatives and mouthpiece on earth. God has empowered them to bless and curse. They speak to God and He answers them. Num. 6:22-27, John 20:22-23. It's God's command to honour our fathers in the Lord so that they can shower us with God's blessings. Eph 6:1 When we receive and honour them, they leave us with blessings from the Lord.

One of the Bible characters that received a prophet's reward being sensitive in the spirit was the Shunammite woman. She perceived Elisha was a prophet and convinced her husband to create a resting place for him whenever he comes around which he agreed. The prophet's reward she received broke barrenness in her life. When you honour God's servant, He takes it upon Himself to honour you in return. Honouring your spiritual head might just be what will end those agonizing years in your life.

* Let the Holy Spirit lead you in this regard.
* May you give your way out of poverty and miseries in Jesus name.
