When God is first place in our life, and we make pleasing Him our highest priority, then we can truly and fully expect to live a blessed, fulfilled life! In the key verse, notice who God rewards……it’s not people who half-heartedly seek Him ~ it doesn’t say “people who only think about Him when they’re having a problem” or “people who will only come to church when something special is going on.” Rather, God rewards people who earnestly seek after Him. That means we are determined, we get up every morning and thank Him for His goodness, we go through the day meditating on His promises, we give Him praise in the good times and the tough times, we are constantly stretching, growing, learning and striving to know Him better.
Remember, when we diligently seek God, He promises that a reward is coming. He promises He will give us strength, wisdom, favor, good breaks, promotion, healing and restoration. When we seek Him with our whole heart, we will find Him, and we won’t be able to outrun His goodness and blessing!
Father, I desire to please You in everything I do. I declare that You are good and faithful. I trust You with my whole heart and believe that You are a rewarder of those who diligently seek You. I bless You and honor You today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
