Blessed Though Persecuted
As I was reading the word, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about blessings on this side of heaven. God desires us to live in prosperity, however He did not promise us it would be affliction free.
Mark 10:30 – But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.
Our earthly blessings come but we will have to pay the price for them. The price being talked about, taken advantage of, being robbed, and stabbed in the back. But as God’s word promises us the greater blessing is eternal life with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
