07 Jul Called to 4 levels of life
Jesus came that you might have life and having the life of God is enough. He brought life on four levels, He came to give you life, an enjoyable, abundant and overflowing life!
“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” (John 10:10)
There is so much life that has been deposited in our hearts and we have to wake up every day and seize it; enjoy every moment of our lives.
I have learned that one area that keeps us from maximizing the life in us is the pain and brokenness of the past. The past always wants to get into the way of enjoying the abundant life that Jesus died to give us. This is the topic that Jayne was teaching last month in her teaching series “Let The Healing Begin” where she addressed how the work of the cross also included emotional healing and any pain you have suffered in your soul. You have to embrace the fullness of the life within by taking anything that is getting in the way of living this awesome life in your heart to Jesus.
In the book of Isaiah the word of God says “Instead of your shame you shall have double honor, And instead of confusion they shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double; Everlasting joy shall be theirs.”
God’s promise is to give you a double compensation for anything you have suffered. When God says He will make it up to you, you had better believe it and hold onto His promises .Your part is to release every heartache, every pain and injustice to the Lord and let the healing begin right now in you and get ready to live life to the full.
Get ready for double for your trouble!
Remember Jesus loves you and there is nothing you can do about it,
