For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
I needed to ask where my heart was one day after my feelings were hurt. Was I seeking Jesus or was I seeking attention for myself? I knew the answer and I was not too happy with myself. My ego got in the way (again) and I quickly told the Lord I was so sorry.
More than anything, I want God to be pleased with my heart and that He knows my aim is to glorify Him. I fail sometimes, but I get back on course and continue seeking Him. I’ve learned that the enemy wants to keep me down as long as he can, so I shut the door on his accusations and move on with sweet fellowship with the Lord.
My relationship with the Lord is the most important thing in my life.
Another verse that helps keep me on my faith-track is Matthew 22:37.
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.”
When I’m loving God with all of my heart, soul, and mind I want that love to be my treasure.
God is my treasure!
