This morning I leave for work to mail my Christmas cards at the Post Office. The city of Rock Island has many streets tore up for repair. So it was like a maze trying to get to the Post Office. Then leaving there was another Maze to get to the Arsenal.
Do you feel like you are in a game of life. That you either are spinning on a hamster wheel or running a maze and finding you are getting stuck. Reminds me of the Hidden Treasure and the Pearl of Great Price in Matthew …13.
Discovering God’s kingdom is like stumbling across hidden treasure or finding the one pearl of great price. God offers his kingdom as incomparable treasure at a price we can afford!! We cannot pay the full price for the life which God gives us, but we can exchange our life for the life God offers, we receive a treasure beyond compare.
When you are running the race of life – on that wheel or maze – remember the treasure we need to seek is Jesus. Job 22:23-23 says – “If the Almight is your gold and your precious silver, then you will delight yourself in the Almighty.” Is the Lord the treasure you seek?
I hope God reveals to you his purpose for your life, but remember his Gift is free. That we’ll be able to freely give all of ourselves to Him. May we find joy and delight in God’s presence.
