2023 THE YEAR OF GREATER HONOUR
2ND JANUARY, 2023.
HONOUR BRINGS REWARDING:
In the scripture, there are levels of rewards for walking in honour. 2John 1:8 (emphasis added) “Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. There is full reward, partial reward and no reward situations. An example of a partial reward situation is in Mark 6:1-6 where while in Nazareth, Jesus could do no mighty works because of the people’s lack of honour for Him. An example of a no reward and a full reward situation is the story of the sons of Eli and Samuel in the book of Samuel.
It is important for you to know that God wants us to honour him in order for us to enjoy honour. It is also important for you to know that it is clear that God takes the issue of honour seriously. Although He had chosen the house of Eli to be priests over Israel unto Him forever, their lack of honour for Him made Him change His mind and He removed them forever. The principle of honour was disregarded by Eli and his sons and it led them to lose a generational blessing forever. Later in 1Samuel 2, God chose Samuel in the place of Eli’s sons because Samuel honoured God. Friend, for you to walk in the honour that God has prepared for you, you need to first honour Him. 1 Samuel 2:22-30, Matthew 10:40-42, 1 Peter 2:17,
God will choose you and honour you.
Oh Lord may I walk in integrity and honour. Therefore, I pray.
Oh Lord may I enjoy the reward of honour from God. Amen.
