I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me. (Revelation 22:12)
The Bible foretells us that the Lord God will come with might, and His arm would establish His rule. His reward is with Him and His recompense would accompany Him (Isaiah 40:10). Hence, let us await His coming running our race looking to Christ Jesus. Word of God says, “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Heb.12:1, 2).
How would be the place that God is preparing for you and me – Heaven? No finite mind can ever imagine. Bible affirms, ” What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him”(1 Corinthians 2:9). So, run your assigned race on this earth with great joy throwing away sinful distractions. Rewards and crowns are waiting for you!
Beloved, Jesus said, “I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me” (Revelation 22:12). Only those who run their race according to the assignment of God will receive the incorruptible crown. Yes, He will reward you with crown of rejoicing, crown of glory, crown of life. How many crowns are you going to accumulate for yourself? What a joy it would be when you receive your reward for all the trials that you underwent with perseverance and patience. No labor of yours will ever go waste. Just keep running your race in the path fixed by Jesus and receive your crown, having success!
A Prayer for Today
Loving Father, I choose to run the race that You have assigned for me with humility. I believe that at the end, a glorious reward is waiting for me. Bless me with Your strength to move forward steadily till I win. Bless the works of my hands, so that people around me would know that there is a living God, who rewards the faithful. In Jesus name I pray, Amen.
