November 17 – God Rewards The Faithful

Daily Bible Life

Joshua, in the Bible, was hugely rewarded for acting in faith when no one else would do. The man claimed an inheritance among his people in fulfillment of the promises of God. Indeed, Joshua was a man of faith and qualified for God’s special blessing. Joshua (and Caleb), prior to becoming an Israelites’ leader, declared the sovereignty of God when other people who spied the land of Canaan doubted God. Joshua and Caleb declared that God was able to give them the land; others had some negative reports about the mission. The scripture reported how Joshua was rewarded for his faithfulness, “When they (Israelites) had made an end of dividing the land as an inheritance according to their borders, the children of Israel gave an inheritance among them to Joshua the son of Nun. According to the word of the Lord they gave him the city which he asked for, Timnath Serah in the mountains of Ephraim; and he built the city and dwelt in it” (Joshua 19:49-50).

 

Lesson:

God will always bless a person that goes an extra mile to make him proud. However, Christians must understand that we do not have to wait for any compensation before we can stand up to defend God’s interest. Believers must not be complacent in any situation and fail the duty to make God proud! A circumstance to honor God will always present itself as our society continues to degrade in moral values and compromise its godly standard. Christians must step into the plate of promoting the righteousness of God as the Bible requires. It is certain that God will be happy to prosper us in the effort. Our rewards of faithfully serving God will be enriching in this life and in heaven also.

 

Prayer:

Dear Lord, please help me to live a dedicated life before you at all times. Help me to make you proud in every area of my life. Do not let me follow the multitude of people to do evil, but help me to maintain a godly principle that glorifies your holy name at all times. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
