Memory Verse: So when Jesus heard these things, He said to him, “You still lack one thing. Sell all that you have and distribute to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me.” But when he heard this, he became very sorrowful, for he was very rich. Luke 18:22-23

Anything we value more than Jesus could be tagged “worldly treasure”. Such treasures could be popularity, wealth, power, houses, education certificates, cloths, food, jewelleries, etc. Some have sold their virginity for i-phone. These are things many people find difficult to part with. We want to keep money we will not spend. We want to get a position, not for the purpose of making life good for other people, but for our own selfish motives. It is important to realize that it is the Almighty God that can give you wealth without adding sorrow. God is the source of all good things. And if you want these things to last in your hands, you have to put Jesus over and above them all. Give yourself up in total surrender to the Almighty God and begin to store up treasures for yourself in heaven where thieves and robbers cannot access. There are cases of people who have stored up treasures for themselves in this world and death came suddenly.

There are people who are so wealthy but are suffering from one sickness or the other and so, they cannot enjoy their wealth. That will not be your portion in Jesus name. Trust God and take your attention off those treasures. Nothing in this world is good enough to replace God in your life. Don’t bother how your needs will be met. We are of great importance to the Almighty God. He has made us His ambassadors on earth. He dwells in us and He carries out his mission through us. He is more committed to meeting our needs than we can ever imagine. Let nothing distract or divert your attention from God. Focus on Him to meet all the needs in your life. If you serve God faithfully, what to eat, what to wear, excellence in your academic work, the house to live, job etc, will not even be a prayer point because He is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him (Heb.11:6).

Quote: Set your affection on things that are above

Prophetic Word: May you be heavenly conscious and earthly useful, in Jesus name.
