28 So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
Today’s Inspiration: We are so much in the flesh because we know no other way to live except in the natural way rather than the new living way. Sometimes I wonder if Jesus: disciples understand what Jesus has taught as they have also been living in the natural way. Jesus says on the regeneration if they followed Him, they will sit on 12 thrones, judging the 12 tribes of Israel. Matthew 19:28.
Everyone who left everything just to follow Him for His name sake will receive a hundred fold return and inherit eternal life. V29.
What cannot you give up to respond to Jesus and surrender your whole life to Him? The Bible is about the way we live to relate to each other and how to approach God. You may think you are doing a vocation in the place God sent you but everything that God does it is for a purpose. I thought I was doing a vocation when God sent me to Sri Lanka never realising that He will catch up with me to release a calling of a healing evangelist as the sermon of the first woman evangelist was being shared with me personally by the pastor of the church. John 4. I found that in all my life, the best Virtue in life is to see people released from bondage and captivity. Many a time I was amazed at my boldness to be used by God in healing people, not being held back by the voice of fear, insecurities or shame that torment me that people might not be healed when I prayed. I have learnt that not all people are instantly healed but some are healed progressively according to the measure of their faith.
God must be the architect and builder of our life before we can do great exploits. Hebrews 11:10. Life is never planned to be smooth. It’s a journey of moulding, refining and transformation of thoughts, deeds and building relationships. We are to find true love in Him in order to understand the things we are going through.
How has God been using you? Are you in the moulding process? Do not be perturbed if you are. The process you are going through is normal and for your own good. I was surprised to learn from my granddaughter of 8 years asking me if I would still love Jesus by going through severe trials. God be praised!
