Believing in God the rewarder

"Like a great bell tolling over all the land, the consistent voice of the
sovereign power of God reverberates throughout Old Testament and New.
He is omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient in this life and the next.
We cannot believe this and also think that our God is no match for the evil of the world."
- Catherine Marshall

"Do not I fill the heavens and the earth? saith the Lord."
Jeremiah 23:24

"Yes, we believe that God is. But that “He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him” is a truth that becomes clearer as we become more diligent. That the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth should give His Son for the salvation of each believer and should see fit to tell him about that grace through His word is quite overwhelming. The grace wherein we stand is the favour of God extended towards those who respond, who are God’s heirs."­
- Trevor Pritchard (Studies in the Statement of Faith, Page 63)

"For it is by free grace (God's unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's salvation) through [your] faith. And this [salvation] is not of yourselves [of your own doing, it came not through your own striving], but it is the gift of God; Not because of works [not the fulfillment of the Law's demands], lest any man should boast. [It is not the result of what anyone can possibly do, so no one can pride himself in it or take glory to himself.]" (The Amplified Bible).
Ephesians 2:8-9
