“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.” Matthew 6:6

What you do in private, in secret is very
important to God because He sees what no one else sees. While man looks at the
outward appearance, God looks at the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)

What you do in private, in secret is very important to God because He sees what no one else sees. While man looks at the outward appearance, God looks at the heart. (1 Samuel 16:7)

 When Jesse brought his preferred sons before Prophet Samuel, the eye of God was on the uninvited David, the shepherd boy in the fields because of his faithful and loyal heart towards God.

It was the heart of sacrifice that Jesus saw in the widow that gave her last penny. It was the repentant spirit that Jesus saw in the prostitute that washed His feet with her tears.

 Are you unnoticed? Are you ignored? Do you think that no one sees you? The eyes of God are roaming throughout the earth to find those whose hearts are loyal to Him. (2 Chronicles 16:9) Someone is watching you. Jesus cares because Jesus sees. So, don’t lose heart. Let me encourage you: The prayers of many years are not lost, the forgiveness you show, the kindness you plant, the perseverance and endurance that grace your life will come back to you a hundred-fold at God’s appointed time because God is watching you and He never forgets. 

 The Bible says in Ezra 5:5 that the eye of their God was watching over the elders of the Jews, so they were not stopped in their assignment from God until they heard from the king. If nobody notices you, yet you are noticed by God, you become one with a difference, and your reward will be great in Heaven.  

 

THE SACRIFICE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS

“There is no time to do what is right. We must set our heart to obey the Word of God, all the time. God’s kind of lifestyle calls us to do what is right in the sight of God at all times, even though it is contrary to what we naturally want to do. Choosing to do what is right is a great test to the flesh.

What is the sacrifice of righteousness? Choosing to do God’s will rather than our own. When our flesh says hate, God says love. It takes sacrificial love to love your enemy and to pray for them. These are the weapons of righteousness. This is the sacrifice that Jesus looks at and rewards. Even though that might not be a grand, or outward sacrifice, it is what Jesus values.”

LIFE ANEW

“When we talk of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, we are talking of the rare opportunity He has given to all believers to experience a new beginning – a situation in which every dead area of our lives receives life anew.

We are dead to our past and alive to our future. Sin’s power over us is broken and we now put on Christ’s new life: we live in Him, move in Him and have our being in Him. Herein lies the significance of resurrection.”

THE LORD HAS CHASED YOUR ENEMY

“How many of us like the people within the dying city, struck by famine, give in to fear, desperation and refuse to venture outside when God has chased our enemy away? Fear can cripple and torment us, and rob us of life’s opportunities. How many minutes, hours, days, weeks, months and even years have been wasted due to fear.”
