God's Compensation Plan

1 Peter 5:10

God has a plan to compensate you for every challenge. setback, difficulty, and suffering you've ever faced.
Life can be tough at times and it's not God's will that we don't reap or receive any rewards in life.
It is not God's plan that our life should be a continuous journey of suffering, sorrow or pain.

It is God's will that life goes well for you. Proverbs 4:18

Compensations are important because we will get weary and faint without them. Galatians 6:9
Compensations encourage us and keep us going.
Knowing you will be compensated inspires you to obey the Lord  and stay in God's will even when it's not easy or popular. Hebrews 12:2

Your compensation is the reward or benefit you get for doing what is expected of you very well.
Companies, individuals, governments, parents compensate when staff, friends, citizens, family or children do the right thing.
How much more God? Hebrews 11:6
If human beings are wise enough to compensate one another, how much more the all wise God.

Jeremiah 29:11 informs us that God has a plan for His people, He has a plan for you!
There is an eternal plan God has in place to compensate you for your service in His Kingdom and there is a present day plan God has in place to compensate you.

So your compensation is divided into two:
* Your present day compensation. Matthew 19:29
* Your future compensation. Matthew 5:12

How do we receive our compensation?
It is to our benefit to obey God. God will compensate the obedient.

1. Seeking God diligently. Hebrews 11:6
2. Obeying God fully. Deuteronomy 28:1-13
3. Fighting the Lord's battles. 1 Samuel 17:26,27, 1 Timothy 6:12
4. Stay in your purpose and assignment. Proverbs 19:21
5. Ask God. Matthew 21:22
