Receive Hundred Times More
And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.Matthew 19:29
Whatever we leave behind we will receive hundred times as much, and we will inherit eternal life. God created us and he knows how to bless us as he molds us to become the person that he created us to be. If we truly trust the Lord and not let Satan cause us to doubt God, we will live life to the full.
Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” (John4:13-14) This verse indicates that things from the world never bring lasting contentment to our soul, only things from Heaven will continuously feed our soul through the Spirit, and bring lasting contentment and all the blessing from God. Welling up to eternally life, means these blessings from God get stronger until we reach Heaven where they are perfect.
Satan’s goal is to keep us connected to the world, whereas the Lord wants us free us from the world as we serve the Lord, reflecting God’s love and telling the world about eternal life through Christ. It amazing how Satan can keep us in the world and at the same time make us think we are closer to Lord. We can identify this condition by reviewing our thoughts at the end of each day. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. (Colossians 3:2)
The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace. (Romans 8:6) A mind governed by the Spirit is a mind that does everything as doing it for Christ, a mind that is always connected to the Lord, both in our conscious and unconscious mind. When our minds are governed by the Spirit, we are more aware of the blessings from God that reside in our soul, such as love, peace, joy, patience, contentment, security, lack of fear, and rest for our souls. All the blessings from Heaven are divine and far exceed things of the world.
Today trust the Lord and live serving Christ in everything you do. The more we live for Christ the more fulfilling life we have, and the more powerful are the blessings that feed our soul.
Prayer: Lord help me to fully surrender my life to Christ, because this will bring life to the full. Don’t let Satan have any control in my life with his lies and deceptions. In Jesus name, Amen
