The Light Daily Devotional – A Payback Time
Focus: A Payback Time
WORD FOR TODAY
There is a reward for everything a man does in the land of the living. A payback time for everything you have done to other people will surely come, be it good or evil either in the short or long run!
“Now David said, “Is there still anyone who is left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” 2 Samuel 9:1 NKJV
What goes around comes around. Jonathan loved David and showed kindness to him as expected of everyone who knows the Lord. He probably did it without expecting any payback. But God does not forget the labour of love as well as the wickedness done by men. He rewards every man accordingly.
The Preacher says Cast your bread upon the waters, for after many days you will find it again. (Eccl.11:1). Everything you have done is coming back to you in multiple folds. A payback time is coming for those parents who invested so much in their children and those people who invested in the lives of people they are not related to.
As you proceed in the journey of destiny, be mindful of the fact that what you are doing today is a seed that will determine what your future will be. Although Jonathan was no more, his deeds brought blessings to his children and household.
+ If God chooses to reward your deeds today or in future what will your lot be?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to sow righteous and good deeds in the days of my opportunities in Jesus name. Amen!
Emphasis: Every cup of cold water given in Jesus name is never given in vain and every seed of weakness will bear the fruit of destruction in the life of the sower. God will reward the deeds of men accordingly!
Have a Fantastic Wednesday!
