FAITH FOR THE JOURNEY (III)

THE MESSAGE:
In both the Old and New Testaments, God commended and rewarded faith. He still does today. Hebrews 11 catalogues Bible characters who demonstrated great faith in God and achieved supernatural feats. They are called heroes of faith. They earned an enviable status with God and man through their faith in the Sovereign Lord. Jesus rebuked those who lacked faith while He commended and greatly rewarded those who exercised faith: the leper (Matthew 8:2), the centurion (Matthew 8:10), the ruler (Matthew 9:18), the blind man (Matthew 9:28), the diseased (Matthew 14:36), the Syrophoenician woman (Matthew 15:28), the afflicted woman (Mark 5:28) etc. However, the good news is that God has made special promises to all who exercise faith, even in this present dispensation. Let us examine some of the promises and rewards that await you as you exercise faith in the All-Powerful and All-Sufficient God.

The first benefit you will gain for exercising faith in God is answer to your prayers. At the tomb of Lazarus, Jesus said, "Father, I thank Thee that Thou hast heard me. And I knew that Thou hearest me always" (John 11:41b & 42a). He had absolute faith in His Father and that earned Him answers to His prayers all the time. When you demonstrate unwavering faith in God always, you can be sure that He will answer your prayers. Matthew 21:22 affirms this: "And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive."

The second benefit you will derive for exercising faith in God this year and beyond is sonship. In John 1:12, the Bible says, "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." Becoming a child of God and heir to the Kingdom comes through faith. Sonship gives you access to the inheritance of the saints. It is a special status for which you should always be thankful to God.

Dearly beloved, let your faith have works, and expect handsome rewards from God for your genuine faith. You are a huge blessing to your generation through faith in Him who can do all things.
