Most things worth having took hard work and it is much more rewarding when you get them through effort and blessings from God. Once rewarded, it’s important to be humble; giving credit to those who helped and praising God.
These attributes of hard work, humility, and praise are brought out in in Psalm 126 as the exiles returned from Babylon and began rebuilding the Temple. After they laid the foundation, they gave thanks to the Lord, rejoiced, and then celebrated their freedom.
In the same way, we can give thanks, rejoice, and celebrate each day for our freedom from captivity because of Christ who frees from the power of sin. He fills the void of an otherwise empty life. We can give thanks to God and give Him credit for good relationships, sound character, excellent study habits, and a solid work ethic.
Even though the days ahead may have difficulty, we can still give thanks in all circumstances because there is hope in the future. Those Who Sow in Tears Shall Reap in Joy.
Continue to want others to know about this reward Jesus Christ talks about in Revelation 22:12, “Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done”.
Each day with God is amazing when we give those who have not accepted Jesus a link to our blog or the blog of those we follow, when we pray for them, and are a positive witness for them.
