Good morning people who are rewarded for their private prayers
A few days ago, the following statement was revealed to us from Matthew 6:5:
If we pray for the purpose of being seen by others, then people’s applause will be the full extent of our reward.
Now have a look at Father’s desired outcome from our private and sincere prayers:
Matthew 6:6 NIV 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.
WOW! Our heavenly Father rewards what is done in secret!
I don’t fully know what the reward is (although in part, I believe it is a greater revelation of Who He is, which is the best reward ever!). Nor do I believe we should pray privately for the purpose of getting a reward.
But I do know that if our perfect, eternal Father is giving the reward, it’s going to be good beyond description!!!
Here’s the truth today:
Praying with the right motivation will result in your Father rewarding you.
Now, that is good news!
