If some friends went to prison, you stuck by them. If some enemies broke in and seized your goods, you let them go with a smile, knowing they couldn't touch your real treasure. Nothing they did bothered you, nothing set you back.
On your lonliest days, the times you feel afraid or let down, remember where your treasure truely lies. This is not your home, for God has placed eternity within you, the real treasure. He has placed within your hearts the passionate Spirit of God, and it is there that you will thrive. The surroundings of our world can look dismal, catapulting anyone into a race for a worldly treasure, when all along the treasure is what you believe about yourself and your God! He is there to rescue you from any despair and walk with you through every journey.
His treasure is YOU.
He will stick by you, no matter where you go. He will deal with the enemies at your hearts door. He will be your wrap-around shield so that all you do is move forward praising Him for His loving protection.
Today, I will focus on the real treasure. The gold He has placed within me and the gold of who He is. Every step I take will be a shining one for Him, and my thoughts will be content. This is my God, the One who saves me and lifts me up to heavenly places. The One who has seated me beside Him to live an eternal life here on earth and in heaven.
Today let there be praise on your lips and in your heart!
