God's Greatest Rewards

Hebrews 11:6 says, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek him.”

I love this verse! It says you must believe two things about God:

  1. That He exists
  2. That He rewards those who earnestly seek Him

I’ve found that a lot of people believe that God exists, but few people believe He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. When people think of God rewarding them, they usually think of God blessing them with a house, a car, money, vacations, etc.

While I believe that God does want to bless you with these things (so you can use them to bless others),  they are not the  primary way God rewards you.

Yes, God wants your needs to be met. Yes, He wants you to have more than you need so you can be a blessing to others. However, God’s greatest rewards are not things! Jesus said that all the things you’re chasing and dreaming of having (a house, a car, food, money, etc.) are already taken care of. God knows we have need for them.

Instead, Jesus resets our priorities: Matthew 6:31-33 says, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”

You don’t seek God to get stuff. You seek God to get God. When you do that, the stuff comes and your needs will be met, but those things won’t be important to you. What will be important to you are the true rewards that come from seeking God, which is more of Him!

God’s greatest rewards for you are more of Him. More of His presence in your life. More of His leading in your life. More of His wisdom in your life. There is no greater reward in life.

In 10,000 years, it won’t matter what kind of car you drove, what kind of house you lived in, or what cool experiences you got to have. What will matter is what you did for God.

Stop worrying about stuff. Start seeking God. Only then will you get the greatest reward God has to offer: Himself. When you seek Him, the stuff takes care of itself.

When’s the last time you sought God to get more of God? What fears are holding you back from going after him with everything in you? Comment Below!

  1. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
