From my fraternal grandmother, I have a lovely old Victorian picture. If you read the words on it across it says, "labor sure has reward." If you read it up and down, it says, "labor has sure reward." Some days I like it one way, some the other. Right in the middle of the words, confusing the issue, is a beautiful lady sower with her bag of seeds. I like the idea of a sure reward. The Lord said our sowing was like that.
"He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." Psalm 126:6 NKJ
Have you been praying and working and believing and sowing good seeds, through sleepless nights or busy days of toil and exhaustion? There is a sure reward for you, a day of rejoicing, as you carry in your sheaves.
"Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord." I Corinthians 15:58 NKJ
"The labor of the righteous leads to life..." Proverbs 10:16 NKJ
He who sows righteousness will have a sure reward." Proverbs 11:18 NKJ
Be assured the plants will come up in profusion, according to the measure and type of seeds that were sown.
