Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional May 27, 2016 - The Great Reward
Today’s Scripture: “So do not throw away this confident trust in the Lord. Remember the great reward it brings you!” - (Hebrews 10:35, NLT)
Topic: The Great Reward [May 27, 2016]
What are you believing God for today? Promotion? Healing? Stronger relationships? Freedom from addiction? God has promised all these things to you in His Word. He wants you to live in blessing and wholeness all the days of your life. But in order to experience His promises, we have to do our part. We have to keep believing and trusting in Him. That’s what today’s verse is saying: if we will stay in faith, if we will keep believing, keep hoping, and keep doing the right thing, God promises there will be a reward. One translation says, “Don’t get discouraged. Payday is coming!”
When you’re tempted to get down, when things aren’t going your way, just say to yourself, “This may be hard. It may be taking a long time, but I know God is a faithful God. I’m going to keep believing because my reward is coming.”
As you trust Him and stand in faith, as you boldly declare His promises, you are positioning yourself to receive His blessing. No matter what your circumstances look like, remember, payday is on its way! Stand firm and experience the blessing and reward He’s promised you all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You for Your good and faithful promises. I choose to trust that my reward is coming. Give me a heart that is fixed on You and fill me with Your peace as I patiently wait on You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
