Apostle Grace Lubega
Hebrews 11:6(KJV); But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
God is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. But what is the reward?
It is easy to think of the reward in terms of the breakthrough in your relationship, business, ministry or career.
However, God wants to elevate your vision so that you may see this from a higher level of understanding.
For long, the church has belittled the reward of prayer and reduced it to the things that money can buy and the things that define the needs of the flesh.
The reward is much bigger. It is GOD HIMSELF.
God is the true reason for prayer, the centre of communion and the subject of fellowship. He is the focus of the closet because the Bible says, “When thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to THY FATHER which is in secret; and THY FATHER which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”(Matthew 6:6).
When He rewards you openly, it means that your knowledge of Him built through the intimacy of prayer becomes plain for the world to see.

GOLDEN NUGGET: God is your reward. He is the true reason for prayer, the centre of communion and the subject of fellowship.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. You are the Alpha and Omega of my life and the centre of my universe. I choose to take my eyes off my needs and to set them on You. I open my spirit to the depths in You that You are launching me and the insights into Your person that You are revealing to me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
