I love it when I read something from The Word and it catches me in a new way. If you haven't figure this out yet, only God's Word can do that. It's the only book that has the power to be constant and new at the same time. I was reading this devotional from the Proverbs 31, First5 app when this thought struck.
(if you haven't downloaded that app yet, do yourself a favor and do it! I'll post the link below)
We were in Hebrews and were talking about Jesus, of course. It was a really great devo that day, but my mind zeroed in on a particular part of the verse, and I couldn't shake the thought.
It was the last half of this (I'll bold it for you) - Hebrews 11:6 "And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."
I'll admit that my mind first went to, "Ohhhh! I wondered what we're gonna get rewarded with??! What could it be?? A cool job in heaven? Something awesome down here on earth? More money? More shoes?? What?? Can I get wings??"
I promise I am 40 and not 12. This insanity lasted only around 2 seconds, but it was there.
Keeping it real.
Then the truth hit me. I knew what the reward was, and it was so much better than shoes, or even wings.
The truth is, the reward is God.
I know I can't physically come through the screen and shake you, but I would if I could.
Oh my goodness!
OUR REWARD IS GOD!
