The Lord rewarded me for doing right. (2 Samuel 22:25 NLT)
There is a reward for every right thing you do. When you put smile on people’s faces, God rewards you. When you say no to sin, God rewards you. When you overcome any temptation, God rewards you. When you overcome any addiction, God rewards you. When you support the needy, God rewards you. When you do what is right in your society, God rewards you. Friend there is a reward for doing right.
Paul said in Philippians that “Not that I desire your gifts; what I desire is that more be credited to your account.” (Philippians 4:17 NIV). Paul was saying that their gifts were good. The gifts came at the right time, and they never stopped giving to support him. But what he desired was more be credited to their account in Heaven. Friend you have account in Heaven that God credits with every good thing you do. The returns on that account could come in many forms: It could be long life, new ideas, new opportunities, healthy living, uncommon favour, better job, good spouse, and the best of all is internal life.
I must confess that for over five years, I have not been to the hospital. I always thank God for my health, and I believe it’s part of the returns on my account in heaven. I don’t lack in life as God always send me help from His sanctuary. That is part of my blessings. And I am still striving to credit my account each blessed day by doing what is right with help of the Holy Spirit.
Do you know that your bank on earth can close down?
Yes, it could but your bank in Heaven stays forever as the owner is The Creator of the universe. So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone—especially to those in the family of faith. (Galatians 6:9, 10 NLT)
