I will multiply my value a Hundredfold Part 2

I will multiply my value a hundredfold.

John 10:10
“The thief comes to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

Someone needs to know today that Jesus came so that you could have a life of abundance or in Greek περισσός or perissos which is translated to exceeding abundantly above and beyond measure. God is not about lack, if you lack something in your life it was the thief that stole it from you.

God is about abundance He is our Jehovah-jirah as stated in Genesis 22:14 ‘The Lord Will Provide’. The story when Abraham was tested and God said to sacrifice his son and tested his obedience, when Abraham went to sacrifice his son that is when the Lord spoke to him and said not to do anything and provided him with the sacrifice, a ram. (Genesis 22:1-14)

Some of us might be going through the test. Some of us are taking our eyes off Christ like Peter did when he walked on water, and rather than focusing on Christ he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” Peter said and it says INSTANTLY Jesus reached out his hand and grabbed him. “You don’t have much faith.” Jesus said. “Why do you doubt me?” (Matthew 14:27-31 emphasis added).

Jesus, save us today, remove this doubt and give us the faith to know that You are the God who provides all our needs according to Your glorious riches. (Philippians 4:19
