Reward for Confidence in God
(Passage: Obadiah 1)
People who reserve their confidence in God will not be put to shame, but they will triumph over difficult situations to possess their possessions.
The scripture stated, “But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions” (Obadiah 1:17).
Lesson on Confidence in God
Deliverance, safety, and prosperity are bound to follow people who faithfully serve God. Although some challenges may arise, children of God have guaranteed promise of victory. No matter how tough a situation may appear, God will cover his people under his blanket of provision and protection. He will help them smile over crises; he will pay their bills, and he will comfort them.
Jehovah will ensure that his children always have reasons to glorify his name. Therefore, it makes sense for anyone to establish definite relationship with God, since there is nothing good to lose in the process. Meanwhile, a person who fails to establish a precise relationship with God, and a person who slacks in his or her relationship with God will have many good things to lose! God’s deliverance, safety, and prosperity may not be readily available for people who distant themselves from their Creator.
Prayer of Grace to have Total Confidence in God
Dear God, I do not want to fool myself by assuming that it is not necessary to have definite relationship with you! I need you; I need your deliverance, protection, and provisions! Therefore, I am ready to give all it takes to have you in my life as my personal Lord and Savior. I yield my total life to you today; I confess your Son Jesus Christ as Lord, and I accept him as my personal Savior. From now on, I will faithfully serve you, and for the rest of my life! Thank you God for sending your Son Jesus Christ to save my soul. For in the name of Jesus Christ I prayed. Amen.
