The Lord Rewards

Poetry simplifies thoughts, crystalizes ideas, and inspires to action. My thoughts after reading in Genesis 17 have been crystalized into a poem. This day with God, be inspired to action; like Abram, seek God’s guidance and patiently wait for your reward.

Step Ahead

To the Word of God
Is what we have cleaved.
Promises Given;
Rewards received.

Useful for today’s world;
Of More value than gold;
Benefits our lives now;
And as the future unfolds.

Lift up voices to God in prayer,
Seek His guidance,
Listen for the promise,
Have faith in His sustenance.

Visualize how to apply His plan;
Enthusiastically act upon each task;
Overcome each obstacle;
Knock, seek, and ask.

Discuss any burdens
But give praise along the way.
Patiently waiting for the reward
Until the completion day.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
