Hidden Treasure

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- May 1, 2013

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. Matthew 13:44

Followers of Jesus have the joy and privilege of treasuring the treasure of God. Like an archeologist for the Almighty, they dig in the dirt of His love and are surprised by His generosity with the precious metals of grace and truth. Jesus is the preeminent jewel. When excavated from this field of faith, he invites us to a lifetime of discovery and renewal. Indeed, search for spiritual treasure requires trust and persistence. So, enjoy the process that produces character in sincere seekers.

Are you motivated to make Kingdom priorities  your number one goal? Are you intentional in seeking intimacy with Jesus? To be sure, it feels laborious at times, but your labor is not in vain. Once you are converted to Christ, resolve to hide the truth of God in your heart and in the process position your life to be leveraged for the Lord. Your sold out life reflects a beautiful orchard for all to admire its Creator…Christ. Work in fields of faith that yield massive, good fruit.

In whom [Jesus Christ] are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:3

We have the unique opportunity and stewardship to seek out the wisdom and knowledge of God in Christ. A good process is to process our findings in prayer and meditation. Like a California gold miner we pan for God’s gold nuggets with our wire filter of Scripture that separates fool’s gold from wisdom’s gold. In what can be a monotonous discipline we will find a variety of gold treasures: dusts of discernment, slivers of hope, nuggets of wisdom and rocks of faith.

When you decide to sell out for Jesus, He may very well require you to sell off some or all of your stuff for Kingdom investments. Complexity is the enemy retaining an eternal perspective, while simplicity is a friend who facilitates Kingdom outcomes. Thus, pray about how to use your worldly assets to send ahead for your heavenly reward. Surround yourself with seasoned mentors who model investing in spiritual treasures. Yes, create Kingdom wealth, lasting now and forever!

If you look for it [wisdom] as for silver and search for it as hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. Proverbs 2:4-5

Prayer: Heavenly Father, I commit to seek  intimacy with my Savior Jesus to hideYour truth in my heart.

I considered that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape stores and cbd retailers. I was hoping if anyone could suggest a reliable site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Data List I am presently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most ideal option and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
