Beholding Our Great Reward

Updated on January 2, 2014

Beholding Our Great Reward

After this , the Word of the Lord came to Abram in a vision:

"Do not be afraid, Abram . I am your shield and your very great reward. "

Genesis 15:1

Sometimes in our life , fears overwhelm us and we tend to lose our focus on God. God reminds us that whatever happen, whatever circumstamces may come to our life, He is our shield and our very great reward. There are times in our life that we focus our eyes on things, on people, on circumstances that we forget that it is still the Lord who is our great reward.

What is meant by "great reward "?

Great reward is something we work hard for to achieve . Sometimes you have to give out your everything to achieve this. Intimacy with God is something we should work hard for. Many times we Christians just take God for granted when other earthly things in life such as career and romance preoccupy us. We do not consider Him any longer as a great reward to possess. As Christians with the passage above, we are reminded to find first our satisfaction and completeness in the Lord. This is one of the reasons why many of our prayers remain unanswered. We must first find our all in all in the Lord.

Fulfillment of God's promise to Abraham was delayed for twenty-five more years maybe he has to find first his completeness and fulfillment in the Lord. We should strive hard daily to achieve our great reward which is the "presence of God" in out life. We should fight for our quiet time and devotional time. We should never give them up if we still consider that the Lord as our very great reward. On top of everything that preoccupy us , we should never stop beholding God as our great reward. Surely in eternity He is all our One GREAT REWARD.
