Where is God Keeping My Gold
“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal.
Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal.
Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.
Jesus made a very profound statement in our key scripture, He did a comparison between earthly treasures and heavenly treasures, with a conclusion that heavenly treasures were much better. It’s pretty obvious, everything on the earth has an expiry date or can be destroyed, especially the good stuff, the houses, vehicles, and the likes, while things pertaining to heaven are supernatural and last forever. Jesus therefore encourages us to store heavenly treasures.
Storing heavenly treasures here doesn’t mean trying to pile up heavenly possession, probably heavenly gold for instance, but He’s speaking about where we should place our hearts, our focus.
Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be
He let’s us know that where your heart is, is mostly likely where your treasure is. What this means is if you really see value in what heaven has given us, then you’ll place your focus there. Focusing on the things of heaven means focusing on its realities which include the salvation we have now, and the confidence that we will eventually be in heaven. Heaven is already your home, therefore focus on it as often as you can, though we are still in this physical body.
Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand.
Think about the things of heaven, not the things of earth.
For you died to this life, and your real life is hidden with Christ in God.
And when Christ, who is your life, is revealed to the whole world, you will share in all his glory
Read through and meditate on this scripture, it’s shows us our reality today.
Teach me to focus on you, and on your realities at work within me, amen.
