Eye On The Prize

November 18, 2010

In Genesis 15:1, God tells Abraham ” I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.”  As spiritual descendants  of Abraham we are able to take hold of this promise for ourselves.  The greatest blessing that we receive from God, is the relationship that we have with God through our faith in Jesus.   We are given the opportunity to walk this earth in a relationship with the Lord of Lords, and the King of Kings.  There is nothing in this world that can compare with that gift.

It is sad that so many people, even many Christian people , look to the things of this world to make them happy.  True joy is not found in the material stuff of this world, but in the One who created the heavens and the earth.  In our daily lives, may we keep our eyes on the prize, the “exceedingly great reward’.  May we walk on this earth, in a relationship with God Almighty.  May we be aware of His presence in our lives.
