Lamentations 3:40-42 (NKJV) 40 Let us search out and examine our ways, And turn back to the Lord; 41 Let us lift our hearts and hands To God in heaven. 42 We have transgressed and rebelled; You have not pardoned.
How to receive God’s blessings? Examine yourself and then confess your sin. And turn back to the LORD. For unconfessed sin is not pardoned. Salvation and life eternal are gifts from God. We are saved through Christ alone by grace alone. Jesus paid it all. All to Him we owe. And we are promised many different rewards in heaven for all that we do for Him. For example, Jesus said “For whoever gives you a cup of water to drink in My name, because you belong to Christ, assuredly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward” (Mark 9:41 NKJV). And it is said in James 1:12 (NKJV), “Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” And Jesus also said “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work” (Revelation 22:12 NKJV). My friends, when we stay connected to Jesus by walking in fellowship with Him, and confessing our sins, and keeping our lives free of besetting sins. We will be blessed daily with fruit from the Holy Spirit, and communion with God, and power to resist temptation and the attacks of the enemy. Whatever struggles we face in life for obeying God’s Word, we will surely be rewarded for it in heaven. As the Apostle Paul said, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18 NKJV).
God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
