Thoughts Of Devotion:
This morning, there’s a treasure that God has in heaven! The Bible describes this treasure as good, inexhaustible, generous, rich, and wonderful. It is a rich storehouse of blessings for his people. In this treasure is every blessing that God prepared beforehand for those who love him. His riches will never be exhausted, on the contrary God promises to pour out blessing upon blessing if we put our dependence on Him. The blessings will abound as Deuteronomy 30:9 tells us, “The Lord your God will make you abound in all the work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your land for good. For the Lord will again rejoice over you for good as He rejoiced over your fathers.”
We are blessed to have a Father in heaven serving us and providing for our needs. His good treasure pours out showers of blessings upon his people. For this reason we must remove our gaze from earthly treasures, and look to the treasures in heaven like Matthew 6:19-20 tells us, “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal.”
In 2016 God wants to open his good treasure and pour out showers of blessings on our lives. When he decides to open his good treasure, be ready, because there will be no place to store your blessings! In Isaiah 30:23, it promises us, “Then He will give the rain for your seed With which you sow the ground, And bread of the increase of the earth; It will be fat and plentiful. In that day your cattle will feed In large pastures.” Pray that this morning we can experience the heavens opened, times of superabundant blessing upon us. We must commit ourselves with God to live obedient lives, only then will we see His promise fulfilled!
