A Precious Promise on : REWARD

A Precious Promise about: REWARD
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” –Jesus
Matthew 5:11,12 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
The word Blessed is makários in Greek. It means exactly what it says--blessed, happy, fortunate.

I am sure there have been times we have shared our faith, or stood firm in our beliefs that we have not felt fortunate, nor blessed.
Under persecution one does not normally feel happy, yet Jesus is telling us we should be exceedingly glad, even rejoicing!
Yes, Jesus is saying anytime we are reviled, persecuted or falsely accused for our beliefs in Him, we will be rewarded for it in heaven.

Isn’t that a wonderful promise to cling to!  Therefore, let’s keep this in our minds whenever we might be suffering in some way for our faith.

Let’s memorize this verse to remind ourselves to stand for the faith and share the truth daily, no matter what, for someday we will be rewarded for it in heaven!

Then, when the world is rejecting us, we can rejoice! When we are falsely accused for sharing the truths of scripture, we can be exceedingly glad!

 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.  1 Peter 5:4 KJV

Blessings to you daily.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–1 Samuel 15:29

This Week’s Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 15:29 KJV
And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent:
for he is not a man, that he should repent.

This Week’s Message:
In this week’s verse we are reminded that God does not lie, nor repent. God’s word is true. What He says or does will stand forever, because His judgements and actions are always just.
We can be sure that whatever He has spoken will come about. We can stand firm on His word.
This week’s verse reminds us of Numbers 23:19 which says the same:
“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

Memorize this weeks verse as an encouragement to yourself, that in this world that is so unstable and insecure, there is one thing that we can be absolutely sure of,
and stand firm on–it is God’s word.
Then, use this verse as you witness to others, share with them the blessing of knowing there is Someone and something they can absolutely believe and trust in,
Someone who will never lie, Someone whose word is always true and good, Someone who is always just, Someone who is so upright that there is no need for repentance.
That Someone is God Almighty (Gen.17:1), the Strength of Israel (1Sam.15:29), Just One (Acts 22:14), Righteous One (1John 2:1), Spirit of Truth (John 14:17), All in All (Col.3:11).
Praise Him today!

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization: Numbers 23:19

This Week’s Memory Verse: Numbers 23:19 KJV
God is not a man, that he should lie;….

This Week’s Message:
This Week’s verse is short, but powerful. God is telling us that He does not lie. And, we as believers all believe that in our hearts, and we know that in our minds, but….
there are times when we let doubt creep in, or fear, or insecurity. We wonder about this or that regarding a situation instead of just believing and trusting.
So this verse is one we should memorize and keep in our minds and hearts for those times of fear and doubt. Then, we can remind ourselves “God is not a man, that he should lie.”

Memorize this verse–Speak it out loud to yourself whenever you doubt or fear or are tempted. Know that God’s word is always true and that He will always keep His promises.
For, as the whole verse says: “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

If you would like you can Print the memory verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision. It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might benefit from it also.

Blessings to you daily as you memorize His word and live in His love and care.
