It is the God that you express is the God that you reveal to your world.
Hebrews 11:6 KJV
To believe that he is means to believe in the truthfulness of everything he said about himself.
It is your responsibility for you to come to him believing.
Revelations 22:12 KJV
There are 2 platforms for receiving from God
- We receive from God as a gift
- We receive from God as a reward
What does it mean to reward?
To reward means to give someone something in recognition of service, in recognition of effort, in recognition for contribution.
Examples of rewards in the Bible
- David asked for the rewards that would be received for killing Goliath (1 Samuel 17:24-27 KJV)
- The disciples ask Jesus about the reward they will get for following him (Matthew 19:27-30 KJV)
The reason that believers are not able to push through is because we are not aware that God is a rewarder.
The reason that believers are not able to give is because we are not aware that God is a rewarder.
The reason that believers are not able to pray consistently is because we are not aware that God is a rewarder.
- Jesus received the reward for fulfilling the joy of the Father (God) (Philippians 2:5-11 KJV)
- 2 Timothy 4:7-8 KJV
The reward principle is both a human principle and a divine principle
Why did God create this principle (the reward principle)
The nature of humans is that they cannot endure pain indefinitely until they are motivated by a consolation. Matthew 25:14-30 KJV
Human Beings continue to persevere when they are aware of the rewards
It is not the reward that destroys, it is when the reward rises above your love for God.
What does God reward?
- God rewards diligent pursuit. God rewards diligence when you seek him diligently.
When you seek him and you seek his will diligently, God rewards it. Ecclesiastes 11:3 KJV, 1 Timothy 5:18 NIV
Diligence demands your energy, Diligence will cost you your time
Diligence in prayer and Diligence in the word of God
Show me a man that seeks God with all his heart, I will show you a man whose life will become a sign and a wonder.

To be faithful means to remain consistent whether it is convenient or not.
To be faithful means to remain consistent whether they tell you thank you or not.
A faithful person is better than a gifted person.

Putting your all in it.
