Trinity: Your Exceedingly Great Reward
After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, ‘Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward’ (Genesis 15:1 ).
The Lord God is Your Exceedingly Great Reward; because when you get to Heaven, He will give you spiritual treasures that He is holding for you. But, it’s not money or jewels you’ll get; the Lord is your treasure. “In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Ps. 16:11). Abraham fought a battle for righteousness sake (Gen. 14:1-16), yet he refused to take the earthly treasures that were rightfully his (Gen. 14:17-24). Abraham received a reward greater than gold or silver. He enjoyed the happiness of Divine presence; the Lord was his reward. People on earth strive for gold to make them happy, but they don’t realize that the greatest happiness of all is found in the presence of God. If your life is empty, let the Lord fill it with His presence.
The Lord God is Your Exceedingly Great Reward. Once you fix your love on Him, your money will have new meaning. You will get joy donating to many righteous causes. All your work for the Lord will bring you greater pleasures because you’ll glorify Him in all you do. You won’t use all your energy pursuing pleasures; but you’ll do the Lord’s will, which will bring you the greatest happiness of all.
The Lord God is the greatest source of reward and happiness in life.
