“And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." Revelation 22:12
From Genesis 1:15 to our verse for today, one can find the word 'give' active in God's hands. The Sun and Moon He created give their light to the Earth and the Son He gave brings His reward to give to everyone according to his and her work. Our giving Lord can be read in hundreds of verses throughout His word, and those are only the explicit instances from a search on the word 'give'. Of course we who believe in His Son can give our testimony of our giving Lord too!
Giving is something our Lord shows to us in His word and in His deeds. George Washington reminded us of our Lord's giving in the name he used for God: Providence. The Apostle Paul reminded us to bring our requests to the Lord. Our Lord likes to give from the many examples we read in the word, but He also likes to be asked, for in the asking we acknowledge our Lord and believe in Him. Daily we find ourselves needy, and daily He gives.
Rejoice in the providence of our Lord Jesus!Bucky
