“But without faith, it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” – Hebrews 11:6
Hey, friends! Thank you so much for continuing to show me love and support. I appreciate you!
I’ve been thinking about trials of our faith more and the rewards of us remaining faithful to God in the midst of difficult life circumstances. Faithfulness and longsuffering are fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:22). So, when we are faithful and endure trying times, we are living in the Spirit.
It may not feel good to go through troubles at the time, but there are blessings on the other side of them. Let’s look at 6 rewards of remaining faithful to the Lord.
- Protection. “Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, and fully repays the proud person” (Psalm 31:23). The Lord protects the faithful.
- Many Blessings. “A faithful man will abound with blessings. But he who hastens to be rich will not go unpunished” (Proverbs 28:20). Those who are faithful will have many blessings.
- Salvation. “And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved” (Matt. 10:22). The one who is faithful will be saved.
- More than enough. “For to everyone who has, more will be given, and he will have more than enough. But from the one who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him” (Matt. 25:29). If you are faithful with a few things, the Lord will give you more.
- A better and enduring possession in heaven. “For you had compassion on me in my chains, and joyfully accepted the plundering of your goods, knowing that you have a better and an enduring possession for yourselves in heaven. Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise” (Heb. 10:34-36). Those who are faithful have a better and enduring possession in heaven.
- A crown of life. “Blessed is the man who endures temptation for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him” (James 1:12). The faithful will receive a crown of life.
“Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” – 2 Timothy 4:8
