18 Ways God Rewards Your Faith

When faced with the headaches and heartaches of life, where do you put your trust? Before I came to know Jesus as my Lord and Savior, I often placed my trust in:
  • My own abilities--which would either come through for me or fall short.
  • My own wisdom--which was only limited to that which I knew. 
  • My own strength--which was only as strong as I was
  • My own possessions--which could get lost, malfunction, break down, etc. 
  • Other people--who may come through or disappoint because of their own busy lives and circumstances

Jeremiah points out, "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD." Jeremiah 17:7 Oh how happy we are when we trust in the Lord, and make the LORD our hope! And the reason? When we are faithful to place our trust in the Lord, He is faithful to bless us. Below are 18 ways God rewards our faith. (Hebrews 11:6)
