Do not lose, then, your confidence, which has a great reward; 36 because patience is necessary for you, so that having done the will of God, you may obtain the promise. Hebrews 10: 35-36
Trust has the promise of a reward, but not a trust placed in men, but in God.
Patience and constancy are needed in walking with Christ. Unfortunate events will occur on the way, which will seek to rob your trust in God, however, with patience and our ability to wait, it will help us to obtain from God our great reward.
Paul said, "I go on to the target, to the high calling, which I have in Christ." This word should fill us with confidence and not dismay, because in due course, God will give us that glorious crown of life, which he has promised to those who love him.
Walking with Christ is not one or two days, this, until Christ comes in glory in the clouds for his church and his reward with him.
Difficult times and adverse circumstances are necessary to strengthen our faith and trust in God. Deserts, crises, economic and emotional storms are necessary to strengthen us as victorious warriors of the Lord and receive the crown that God has promised us.
The great heroes of faith were strengthened in trials because they put their trust in God. There is no need to fear, “because if God is for us, who is against us”.
Trust in God guarantees reward, but all reward requires patience, and all patience requires doing God's perfect will, which is necessary, to achieve the promise.
