“I am your shield, your Exceedingly great reward.” Genesis 15:1b
That’s who HE IS. God’s personality cannot be contradictory to His actions. He protects you because He is Protector- A Shield.
He cannot not be what He is already. Which means, He will not stop providing for you, healing you, rewarding you, protecting you, defending you; answering you, because this is His personality whether you and I understand it or not. His protection is not an action, it’s HIMSELF. His rewarding isn’t based on what you do, it’s Who He is- The Rewarder.
He’s a GOOD FATHER. His goodness that pursues us everyday reveals who He is, even in the middle of the chaos, the mess, the confusion and the turmoil.
Jesus knew this aspect of His Father so well, that He daringly looked at the two fish and five loaves of bread to feed the 5000. Only when we are so confident of who He is, then we know that the small will multiply, the obstacle will part and the mountains will crumble down. That’s what He does for His children to overcome. He turned a deceiver to be called Prince (Israel); how much more the new covenant will magnify His Glory in our lives now!
