“The LORD rewards those who are faithful and righteous…” 1 Samuel 26:23
I’m not big on material things at all. I think diamonds are pretty, but I don’t have to have them to be happy or to feel good about myself, which is why I didn’t mind when my husband proposed to me 20 years ago with a ring that cost $75. He could’ve wrapped a piece of grass around my finger, and I would’ve been happy. But when he got down on one knee on New Year’s Day in 2020 to tell me how much I meant to him and how much I deserve the world, I cried. I opened the jewelry box he gave me and saw a beautiful ring!
My sister, you and your husband may have started your life together with not even two pennies to rub together, but you stay faithful to God and your man, and God is going to bless you with a beautiful upgrade in every aspect of your life. You may be single right now, and have been serving God faithfully. My sister, stay faithful to your Father God, who is your King and your Husband. He is going to dress you. He is going to put a ring on your finger and a royal crown on your head. He is going to reward your love and sacrifice and your faithfulness to Him, and your family.
Prayer: Thank you, Father, for helping me stay faithful to you, to my husband, my children, and to my purpose. I’m not doing it for the reward, but I thank you for it. I trust your perfect timing and your perfect way. Help me continue to serve you with a right heart. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
