Where Is Your Treasure?

St.Matt.6:21 {For where YOUR TREASURE IS; there will your heart be also} EVERYBODY has a treasure: something they adore, admire, and delight in MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. If you can find a person’s treasure; then you will Know where their heart really is. Your most intimate THOUGHTS, DESIRES & DEEDS will be in what, and upon who you treasure the most. If your treasure is The Lord; then He is the One you will seek to please the most earnestly: and if your treasure is in The World; then that is what you will base your Focus upon, and where your priorities, and interests will be all the time. When people are always telling you they love the Lord; then just pay attention to where THEIR INTIMATE FOCUS IS; and that will tell you if their TREASURE IS REALLY GOD.

Think On These Things!

Phil. 4:8 {Finally brethren, whatsoever things are TRUE~ whatsoever things are HONEST~ whatsoever things are JUST~ whatsoever things are PURE~ whatsoever things are LOVELY~ whatsoever things are of GOOD REPORT; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise; THINK ON THESE THINGS.} God will put people in your life who will SINCERELY love you as much as they can as a human: but we all know that NOBODY will ever love us more than God: because GOD IS LOVE. We should Not always focus upon those who hate us, or doesn’t like us, because they are only NEGATIVE THOUGHTS & SIGNALS sent by the adversary to make us heavy, and to halt our life’s progress & purpose. Quit thinking about things you have no control over. You can’t help HOW somebody feels about you; anymore than you can control someone else’s emotions. LEAVE THEM IN THE HANDS OF THE LORD, and go on with your life; focusing upon the Good, instead of the Evil. Beloved! this is how you will keep a HEALTHY spirit, and a SOUND mind.

Christ revealed in you

Rom.8:29 {For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate TO BE CONFORMED TO THE IMAGE OF HIS SON, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.} God wants us to be a REFLECTION of Jesus His Son: and not a Replica of somebody else. How are you going to fulfill your mission, and finish your course that God has purposed, and assigned for you; if you’re always trying to imitate someone besides who YOU’RE SUPPOSE TO BE REPRESENTING. We are ambassadors of Christ; sent into the world to make disciples of all nations IN HIS NAME.

Never Alone

Heb.13:5 {Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as you have: FOR HE HATH SAID, I will never leave you, not forsake you} Beloved! When you have the Lord in your life; YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE AGAIN. I didn’t say you would never be lonely: I said you would never Be Alone. God is forever with you. He is the only person whom you can share ALL YOUR MOST INTIMATE THINGS WITH~ who will not condemn, disregard, or despise you: but as you call upon Him; HE WILL HELP & CONSOLE YOU; not hurt & condemn you. Yes, God hates our sin, and He does not condone it; but He does not condemn you either: rather He convicts you enough for you to draw near unto His THRONE OF GRACE that you may find grace to help you out of it FOR TOTAL DELIVERANCE, before it destroys your life. God is not like man in an agreement. GOD KEEPS HIS WORD: and He honors His covenant. When He said He’ll never leave you, or forsake you; then beloved! count it as a done deal: because YOU NOW HAVE A TRUE FRIEND UNTO THE END.

God’s Enduring Love

Rom. 5:5 {Hope makes us unashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts BY THE HOLY GHOST which is given unto us} NOTHING can compare to God’s love in your spirit: because the GOD KIND OF LOVE can induce you to love those who HATE YOU: it will cause you to DO GOOD to those who use you: it will cause you to fervently PRAY for those who are PERSECUTING YOU: and it will cause you to BLESS those who CURSE YOU; and cause you to even LAY DOWN YOUR LIFE for those who would TAKE YOURS. Love is the FIRST FRUIT of the Spirit that you will recognize in a person who is truly born again. Love is the FIRST INGREDIENT that you will know, feel, and exert when you are saved: because you see; love is what HOLDS EVERYTHING ELSE TOGETHER, and put all other fruits in perspective. GOD IS LOVE: and any person who does not love is not BORN OF GOD. The only thing God hates is SIN, and anything that sin represents; but He loves people. I encourage you to EXAMINE YOUR HEARTS DAILY, and see if you’re in the love of God, and to see if you’re letting His love flow IN you, and by you; so that others who don’t know Jesus; might at least get a small example of what it’s like to know true love by allowing Christ Jesus to love them THROUGH YOU.

Sanctification & Dedication

2.Timothy 2:21….If a man therefore PURGE HIMSELF from these; he shall be a vessel unto honour, SANCTIFIED, and useful for the masters use, and prepared unto every good work. God will set you apart, cleanse, and SANCTIFY YOU to do His Will: but DEDICATION is what you do yourself. When you’re chosen for a specific purpose and assignment such as JOHN THE BAPTIST, THE APOSTLES, OR PAUL, ETC. then you cannot allow yourself to be involved in everything that is presented to you. It takes a SOLD OUT DECISION to the Lord, in order to become a VESSEL OF HONOR; in which you will bring glory to God in your spirit, soul, and body through SANCTIFICATION, and in THE SPIRIT OF HOLINESS in the Lord.  You see, your ordained purpose will not be accomplished without your COOPERATION OF LIVING  BY THE WORD, and walking according to His DIVINE WILL FOR YOUR LIFE.  There is a price to press into the HIGH CALLINGS of God. The question you need to ask yourself is ” Am I Willing “.  If you’re willing to walk in that gift; then God will give you the grace, and ability to achieve it according to His Will.
