Reward For Faithfulness

Romans 4:21-22

And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform. And therefore, it was imputed to him for righteousness.

Hebrews 11 outlines many of the Old Testament patriarchs who took God at His word and was rewarded with righteousness for their faithfulness. This principle applies to us today. As we reflect on those patriarchs both in the Old and New Testament whose faithfulness was counted as righteousness give all mankind reason to have faith in God and His ability to perform whatever He promises as it is part of His unchangeable nature as He cannot lie.

It was Moses' faith in God that allowed him to lead the nation of Israel through the Red sea on dry land and it was Joshua's faith that the young nation could possess the Promise Land and they did. It was Noah's faith in God when God instructed him to build an Ark because it was going to rain even though it hadn't rained in 120 years. With that being said, when Abraham was promised a child he kept the faith and it too was counted as righteous. Who can forget Daniel and his three friends when their faithfulness put their lives in jeopardy; they were rewarded by being delivered and was looked upon as righteous before God.

What does an unusual request from God say for you and me today? It says that regardless of how bleak or foolish a promise or situation looks trust God because He knows the outcome before He makes the promise or request.

Faithfulness in God is counted as righteousness.
