Morning Prayer Summary for Monday, September 14, 2020


The following excerpt is taken from Say Yes! by Rick Renner:

What to Do if God Chooses You but You Feel Like Giving Up

In Romans 1:16, Paul wrote, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth…” Later, he reminded the Roman church of his style and method of preaching: “Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about until Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ” (Romans 15:19). Backed by the authority of Heaven, Paul made proclamations about God’s Kingdom and His miracle-working, life-transforming power. The results of this bold, promise-making kind of preaching were fantastic.

Now this word paressia is used in Hebrews 10:35: “Cast not away therefore your confidence…” The word “confidence” evidently alludes to the bold, brave, fearless promises, declarations, or confessions these believers had made in connection with the Gospel and God’s call on their lives.

Just as the apostle Paul boldly proclaimed the Gospel and its promises to an unbelieving world, these saints had been professing, declaring, and laying claim to the promises of God’s Word for their personal lives. They had done it boldly. They had done it audibly. What they believed in their hearts is what they had spoken loudly and clearly to anyone who wanted to listen. However, when the results weren’t forthcoming as quickly as they wanted, they were tempted to toss their faith away and count it as nonsense. But the writer of Hebrews urged them not to do it because faith “…hath great recompense of reward.”

The phrase “recompense of reward” is from the Greek word misthapodosia. This word is a compound of two Greek words, mistha and podos. The word mistha is the word for money, a person’s salary, or for a payment that is due. The word podos is the word for foot or feet. It is the root word for a podiatrist, which is a foot doctor.

When these two words are compounded, it presents a picture of money traveling by feet and headed in your direction. This is payment, recompense, a reward headed your way. One man has coined the phrase, “Money cometh.” There is actually no better translation than this for the Greek word misthapodosia.

This word carries the thought of  being paid for present labor, reimbursed for past expenses, provided reparations for past injustices, and rewarded at some point in the future. Let’s look at each of these aspects of the word “recompense” and see how they apply to you, your dreams, and to the call of God on your life.

God pays you by giving you victories in different areas of your life. That pay may be success in your ministry. It may be financial. It may be a greater anointing than you’ve ever had. It may be a phenomenal increase of prosperity. It may be that God pays you by providing a long-term friendship you’ll be able to count on for years to come.

God has all kinds of ways to recompense us for staying in faith and doing what He called us to do. But one thing is for sure–the word misthapodsia proves that God wants you and me to receive a blessing for the services we have rendered in His Kingdom.

Thank God for Heaven! You’ll receive a future reward there too. But right now you’re here on planet earth, with physical and material needs that must be met. You need blessings and help right now to live and take care of your personal responsibilities. The devil may try to hinder God’s blessing from arriving at your doorstep, but don’t give up! It’s right for you to expect to receive payment for your labors even now.

Scripture Focus…

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.  (2) I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” (3) Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. (4) He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart. (5) You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day, (6) nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. (7) A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. (8) You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked. (9) If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, (10) no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. (11) For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; (12) they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone. (13) You will tread on the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent. (14) “Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name. (15) He will call on me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him. (16) With long life I will satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
(Psalms 91:1-16 NIV)
