Where Your Treasure Lies

Where my treasure lies

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matthew 6:21, KJV). Jesus made this pronounced statement, after he told the people not to make any treasures here on earth, for it will decay, rot or be stolen. Where does your treasure lie? Are you worried what people would think if you don’t drive a certain car, live in a certain neighborhood? Do you place your trust in the job you do, to provide you with the necessary luxuries? Or, do you trust the Lord God well enough, not to worry about the day of tomorrow?

God knows the heart of every man. What the heart is full off, the mouth would overflow with. God saw that the Moabites were serving other gods, and relied only on their own works and the treasures that they accumulated on this earth. Isn’t the same true of today’s world. You will find in Jeremiah 48, that God warned the Moabite people, for God looked upon the kingdom of Moab and saw:

Moab hath been at ease from his youth, and he hath settled on his lees, and hath not been emptied from vessel to vessel, neither hath he gone into captivity: therefore his taste remained in him, and his scent is not changed.
Jeremiah 48:11 KJV

Jeremiah had to prophesy the following to the people of Moab:

For because thou hast trusted in thy works and in thy treasures, thou shalt also be taken: and Chemosh shall go forth into captivity with his priests and his princes together. And the spoiler shall come upon every city, and no city shall escape: the valley also shall perish, and the plain shall be destroyed, as the Lord hath spoken. Jeremiah 48:7‭-‬8 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/jer.48.7-8.KJV

On the 27th of May I was under a tremendous spiritual attack. That day I was writing a piece on Jeremiah 23 (please read this piece for yourselves). While reading this piece, the Holy Spirit were speaking to me. I felt the same way as Jeremiah did in verse 9 (KJV) saying, “Mine heart within me is broken because of the prophets; all my bones shake; I am like a drunken man, and like a man whom wine hath overcome, because of the Lord, and because of the words of His Holiness.” Later that day a Small Still Voice said: “Because you have hardened your heart, as the money you serve, I will turn my face away from you.” A warning from the Lord Most High, to this fallen world.

My prayer for you today is that you will turn back to the Lord, and place your trust only on Him who has the whole world in His hand. #GodCanDoThis
