Just God by Richard Roberts

The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

–Proverbs 10:22 NLT

     Down the road from my house there is a big yellow Humvee—or “Hummer”—sitting on a pedestal outside a large bingo hall.  Close by there is a huge billboard declaring that you can win the Hummer, and how much money has been won at the bingo hall. 

Basically the sign is saying that if you come in and play their games of chance, the reward system they have set up will work for you.  Of course, it doesn’t say how much money has been lost, or what effect it has had on people’s finances and their lives.

 You Can Succeed Every Time

 All across America, people go into gambling establishments—or bet on horses, or buy lottery tickets—and when they come out, they often don’t have money for milk or diapers or house payments.  It is a reverse reward system that has an enormous amount of failure, risk, guilt, and devastation that never gets displayed.

But God has a reward system, based on His eternal Word, in which you can succeed every time!  

God’s system is planting your seed for a harvest.  And Galatians 6:9 NKJV says, Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart.  Notice it says we shall reap—that means when you believe and act on God’s Word, you can win every time!            

But with God’s system we don’t always win at the exact moment we want to win.  And  if we don’t get a miracle in 24 hours, on our own timetable, we may start doubt God and speak negative words.  Before you know it, we’ve poured gasoline on our seed.

The devil hates it when you plant your seed, because he knows a harvest is on the way.  He bombards your mind with doubt.  He tells you that God’s reward system is a lie.  Even though God tells us Give and it shall be given unto you (Luke 6:38), the devil will tell you that you have a better chance hitting the lottery or some other system that involves the luck of the draw.

 Get Bolder!

 God’s system works.  We just have to keep our eyes on our Source, His supply, and His perfect timing.

That’s what Peter did in Acts 4, when he was being threatened not to preach in the name of Jesus.  Peter didn’t doubt God.  He didn’t rehearse the problem by thinking on it or talking about it.  He just said, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servant to speak your word with great boldness. (v. 29 NIV)

Instead of focusing on the problem, Peter focused on the solution and prayed for boldness! 

When you face trouble and discouragement, don’t give up—just get bolder!  Don’t let the devil talk you out of your seed-planting…or he can rob you of your harvest.  Be bold in sowing for your miracle, and in believing God for the harvest.  According to His own Word, His reward system is sure.  And in due season, you shall reap if you don’t lose heart!
