“And everyone who has given up houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands for the sake of my name will receive a hundred times more, and will inherit eternal life.”
I have always had a hard time fulfilling these words of Jesus in my life. So many questions, whys and hows. Why will He give me my family, my husband, my children, the roof on my head, this country, etc, if He wants me to give them all up? After carefully reading the gospel over and over asking the Lord for His wisdom, new revelation came to me. Everything that i have, came from Him. Each one of those blessings in my life has a purpose. And all of those for only one reason. HIM – that He may be glorified! I felt His gentle voice tell me offer them up to me (give them up for the sake of His name), that they too may be blessed beyond what i can imagine. Can anyone count hundred times more blessings from God? How about for eternity?
Prayer: Lord, help me to give all that i am and all that I receive from You back to You. That You may bless them with Your mighty hands.
