Daily Read – Leviticus 24:1-25:46; Mark 10:13-31; Psalm 44:9-26; Proverbs 10:20-21
So Jesus answered and said,
"Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers
or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands,
for My sake and the gospel's, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time -
houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands,
with persecutions - and in the age to come, eternal life.
But many who are first will be last, and the last first."
My Kingdom bears absolutely no resemblance to the world system. Actually, nothing in My Kingdom makes sense to the logical and reasoning mind, but only to the redeemed spirit of man. The Kingdom looks up-side down to the world.
I love taking the foolish things in the world to confound and baffle the self-proclaimed wise. I am
the changeless God, but I am
Many who strive to become first in this world will be last in Mine. Those who live surrendered lives seeking My ways above theirs will be upgraded to high places of authority and mantled for future assignments. The lower you go, the higher you soar in My Spirit. Humble yourself under My mighty hand and I will lift you up. These things go against the grain of the world's mind-set.
Nothing you surrender and give to Me goes unnoticed nor unrewarded. When you release it all to Me, I return it to you not only in this life, but manifold blessings await you in heaven.
From a place of obedience, Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son. In this action, he demonstrated not only his love for Me, but his unwavering trust in My love. He knew My heart and trusted I would come through for him. I not only spared his son, but he became the father of many nations.
Are you willing to surrender your spouse, children, family, job, ministry, and everything into My hands? It’s in your releasing that I activate the spiritual principal of multiplication.
Precious Holy Spirit, I ask You to reveal those things I have yet to release to Jesus. I want nothing to stand between us. I take this opportunity to surrender everything and everyone in my life to You. I leave them all in Your hands and choose not to take them back. My entire life belongs to You and whatever You direct me to do; I am free and willing to do it. Wherever You lead, I will follow.
Surrender all to Me…
The returns are incalculable!
