Faithfulness Rewards

Sis. Stella Dhinakaran

Faithfulness unlocks God’s blessing into your life. Abraham followed God with all faithfulness and led His family too in that path. This is how the Lord God testifies of his faithfulness, “For I have chosen him, so that he will direct his children and his household after him to keep the way of the LORD by doing what is right and just, so that the LORD will bring about for Abraham what he has promised him” (Genesis 18:19). You too will be blessed likewise. The Bible says, “Blessings crown the head of the righteous (Proverbs 10:6).” 
 
We also read in the Bible about Naomi who set forth to the land of Moab, along with her husband and two children during a famine. Her husband Elimelech died after which her both sons married Moabite women. They dwelt there for nearly a decade. Suddenly her both sons too died and Naomi and her two daughters-in-law were left as widows. So she told her daughters-in-law, “My children, go back to your parents. May the Lord help you both to live well with the husband that you would get. It grieves me very much for your sakes that the hand of the Lord has gone out against me!" Then they lifted up their voices and wept again; and Orpah kissed her mother-in-law and went off. Naomi said to Ruth, “Return after your sister-in-law" (Ruth 1:1-15). But Ruth held on to her and keenly observed her life. She was amazed to see how she was sincere in seeking the Lord in spite of all her difficulties, afflictions, bitterness and problems.  Yes, since Naomi was faithful in seeking the Lord, Ruth too followed her and sought Him with the same true love. Hence, God blessed Ruth. He rebuilt her life with a godly and rich man Boaz and made her descendants to increase. He changed her lacks and granted her perfect blessings. In her generation, Jesus was born years later!
Beloved, did you observe the continuous thunder and lightning that struck all the men in a family to death?  Though there were millions of reasons to depart from their hope on the living God, Naomi and Ruth  did not.  Moreover, even at such crucial times, they loved each other and showed their faithfulness to each other without any accusations.  As the Bible says, “A faithful man will abound with blessings” (Proverbs 28:20), their faithfulness to their faith cleared the gloomy clouds in their life and paved way for a rain of blessing! Beloved, do not be afraid of the fire that is tormenting you now in various forms.  Here is a promise of God for you, “You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance” (Psalm 66:12). 
Prayer:
Dear Lord,

I thank You for your amazing love and grace.  Though we are unfaithful at many times, You are always faithful to us. Even now, as I go through these gut-wrenching agonies and difficulties, I know You are good. Your hands are carrying me. Help me to be good and kind to others even at this painful time until I see Your breakthrough. Lift my head for Your name sake. 

In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
