When Goliath, the champion of the Philistines came up against
Israel, the Scripture records that “all” the men of Israel fled,
because, they were sore afraid (1 Samuel 17:24). However, when
David inquired and was told the reward that anyone who killed Goliath would
get, he redefined his perspective based on the new motivation; he girded up his
loins and went against Goliath.
Indeed, there is great power in reward. Rewards have the power to activate momentum for breakthrough.
Another example of this can be seen in the life of Jesus, Who for the joy (reward) that was set before Him,
endured the cross, despised the shame, and is right now set down at the right hand of the throne of God
(Hebrews 12:2). So, we see that rewards also generate the momentum to withstand or go through pain,
and to receive the prize that is set ahead. How profound!
So, anytime that feeling of inadequacy to go through some situations arises again, quickly take a clue from the life of David and the Lord Jesus, and set your eyes on the target, rather than on the process. By focusing on the prize (reward), you will be generating momentum for the price (process). Glory to God!
