Jesus' Reward

Have you ever seen a bride-to-be with a new diamond on her finger? She turns her hand this way and that, so the facets of the stone catch the rays of light. She is mesmerized by the colors of the prism shimmering in the sun.

God gazes upon you with great pleasure. You are His many-faceted gem. Contained within you are many gifts that shine through to everyone around you.

You are a royal diadem in the hand of your God. You are Jesus' reward, His inheritance.
And He is your inheritance!

After this, the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision: "Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward."
Genesis 15:1

Oh Karen,
That is one of my favorite verses!
Truly, HE is our Shield and our very Great Reward!"
And yes, I love the utter joy on a bride-to-be's face as she looks at her ring and thinks of her groom!
How unbelievably beautiful that We are Christ's BRIDE.
HIS Love is Unconditional and Eternal. Maybe we can sit next to each other at the Marriage Feast of the LAMB!

Beautiful reminder. So undeserved but His ways and thoughts are higher than ours. May we love Him deeply and seek His face everyday! God bless sister.

Thank you for making this personal to me today! We need to hear how much he takes pleasure in us. What a privilege we have to be one of his and to know his love.
Blessings to you.
