God is not a man that he should lie. If he said it, his word will come to pass. Jesus didn’t give his life just to ransom our soul for eternity. He watches over his word because he wants to provide for our daily physical, spiritual, emotional, and financial needs. He promises that when we follow his word, we will reap an abundant payday.
The key is to not become weary and think that God has forgotten about us or think that we are undeserving. Unfortunately, we may listen to our friends, loved ones, or coworkers that tell us that our dreams are too big. “No one from around here accomplishes anything great,” they tell us.
Job listened to his “friends” until he finally got sick of them. He eventually decided to fight the good fight of faith and declared, “I know my Redeemer lives”. Job was saying in essence, though God has allowed me to go through this trial, he will redeem me and I trust him over my friends, the news reports, fortune tellers, or statistics.
This is the type of faith that moves God and causes him to act, heal, forgive, make us whole, and give us our payday. When Jesus saw the Centurion’s faith, he healed his servant. Ruth wasn’t looking for a husband, but through her faith in Naomi’s God, she received her Boaz. Job endured and received his payday in a king-sized way when he received double for his trouble. God wants to give you a king-sized payday. I dare you to try him!
