“Tell the righteous it will be well with them, for they will enjoy the fruit of their deeds.” (Isaiah 3:10 NIV)
In this passage we see the Lord warning the people of the consequences of their actions. But here in the midst of it He provides encouragement, that righteousness brings rewards. The Bible doesn’t promise riches or power in life to those who follow Jesus; but it does promise that God will take care of us.
And maybe the rewards He’s talking about aren’t for ourselves, but for those whose lives we can impact by living a righteous life. It’s encouraging to think that God could use me to change someone’s life.
Lord, please use me today. Full me and make me righteous, and may I see the fruit of that righteousness in my ministry today and in the days to come.
