GOD Is Your Exceedingly Great Reward

Understanding What It Means for God to Be Our Exceedingly Great Reward

In our walk of faith, understanding the depth and breadth of God’s promises to us is crucial. One of the most profound assurances we have is that God Himself is our exceedingly great reward. This promise is not just about material blessings or temporary satisfactions; it speaks of an eternal and intimate relationship with the Creator of the universe. But what does it truly mean for God to be our exceedingly great reward? Let’s delve into the story of Abraham to uncover this powerful truth.

The Story of Abraham and God’s Promise

In Genesis 15:1, God appeared to Abraham in a vision and spoke these words: “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” This statement came at a pivotal moment in Abraham’s life. Despite the blessings he had received, Abraham was burdened by the fact that he had no heir. His heartfelt plea to God reflected his deep concern: “Look, You have given me no offspring; indeed one born in my house is my heir!” (Genesis 15:3).

God’s response was a profound promise. He reassured Abraham that his servant Eliezer would not be his heir. Instead, God promised him a son of his own flesh and blood. To illustrate the magnitude of this promise, God took Abraham outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them. So shall your descendants be” (Genesis 15:5).

Abraham’s response to God’s promise was one of faith and belief. Genesis 15:6 records, “And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness.” This act of faith was a pivotal moment, marking Abraham’s trust in God’s word despite not seeing the immediate fulfillment of the promise.

The Journey of Faith: Lessons from Abraham’s Life

Abraham’s journey with God is a profound example of unwavering faith and trust. When God first called him to leave his homeland and kindred, Abraham obeyed without knowing where he was going (Genesis 12:1). This act of obedience laid the foundation for a life marked by trust in God’s promises.

God blessed Abraham abundantly, not just materially but also spiritually. Despite the uncertainties and the seemingly impossible promise of an heir in his old age, Abraham believed God. His faith was tested and refined over many years, yet he held on to God’s promises.

Trusting God in Our Own Lives

As children of God, Abraham’s story encourages us to trust God wholeheartedly. We must believe that He is our exceedingly great reward, just as He was for Abraham. This means recognizing that God Himself is our ultimate blessing. His presence, love, and promises are more valuable than any earthly possession.

In our journey, we may face challenges and uncertainties. There will be moments when we question God’s plans and timing. However, just as Abraham’s faith was counted to him as righteousness, our faith and trust in God are precious in His sight. The Bible reminds us in Isaiah 55:11, “So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.”

Encouragement for Today


Beloved friends, be encouraged today. Life’s journey is filled with ups and downs, and there are times when we may feel discouraged or doubtful. But remember, God is with us every step of the way. He is faithful to fulfill His promises. Trust Him, even when the path is unclear, just as Abraham did.

Jesus asks us to have faith as small as a mustard seed (Matthew 17:20). This tiny faith can move mountains because it’s placed in a great and mighty God. He loves you, He cherishes you, and He wants to bless you abundantly—not just you, but your future generations as well.

Conclusion and Prayer

Will you trust God today? Will you allow Him to lead and guide you? He desires a partnership with you. Let the Holy Spirit direct your steps, and you will experience the fullness of God’s blessings.

May God bless you all. Remember, God is your exceedingly great reward. Trust in Him, have faith, and watch how He fulfills His promises in your life and beyond.

A Prayer of Encouragement

Heavenly Father, we come before You with hearts full of gratitude. Thank You for being our exceedingly great reward. Help us to trust You fully, just as Abraham did. Strengthen our faith, especially when we face challenges and uncertainties. Remind us of Your promises and Your unfailing love. Guide us with Your Holy Spirit and lead us on the path You have set before us. Bless us and our generations to come, that we may be a testament to Your faithfulness. We love You and praise You, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

God bless you all, and until next time, stay strong in your faith. Amen.
