The true riches of God

Through the years I remember different people who according to the worlds abundance had very little yet they were so happy. As the years passed it became evident they had the true riches of God,riches that no thief could steal. It is a bountiful living given to those who have the Lord in the center of their life! (Matthew 6:19-21) 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

When we do not sit and worry about things we let go and let God do what we could never accomplish . He provides what we need and we are instructed not to take thought for our life,for all is in His hands and we must seek the kingdom first (Matthew 6:25-34),(Revelation 3:17,18).

The true riches of God is His wisdom for our life that is better than gold,and is an inheritance of substance!(Proverbs 3:13-18) 13 Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. 14 For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. 15 She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her.16 Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. 17 Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. 18 She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is every one that retaineth her. (Proverbs 8:17-21).

  1. Dear Julia,

    This post is SO TRUE. Happiness is ALWAYS centered around CHRIST JESUS and doing His+ WILL from the heart. His+ TRUTH makes us free . . . free to serve HIM+ without fear, free to walk without the tormenting spirits of FEAR and the tormenting spirits of heaviness and sadness.

    Yesterday, I was in town to do errands and grocery shopping. The spirit of sadness rode on my shoulders like an elephant. It was oppressive and beginning to depress me and I returned home after 3 hours just exhausted.

    Instead of napping, though, The LORD directed me to return to my prayer station of praying through 3 Psalms aloud at the noon-time hour; I had missed that prayer stop due to shopping.

    SO I DID as HE+ BID ME DO.

    Guess what ? The spirit of heaviness and the spirit of sadness FLED AWAY FROM THE WORD+ of GOD that I had put into the Air ! I had enough energy to put away the groceries and even my feet felt better !

    REAL Grief, I discovered, is different. At those times , the GRIEF just explodes out of me and I sob and sob. But that GRIEF only lasts for a few minutes. Then, I am okay again and refreshed in JESUS.

    That SMOTHERING spirit of sadness, however, was NOT THE SAME THING.

    So, His+ TRUTH SET ME FREE ! Today I awoke actually HAPPY and Joyful, ready to do The LORD’S WILL set before me this day.

    Yesterday, I NOTICED THIS: I could not bear any witness to The LORD because of that spirit of sadness hanging about me. Usually when I am in town , a few folks come up to talk to me — are actually DRAWN to me by The LORD — and I am able to give them a Salvation tract or talk to them about JESUS as LORD .

    But that spirit of sadness chased them away . . . which is exactly what the satan designed it to do. No witness went forth for JESUS.

    So, I wasted the opportunity to witness yesterday.

    The LORD helping me, I WILL NOT WASTE IT AGAIN !

    His+ TRUTH is our shield and buckler.

    Here is the TRUTH: my dear husband is HAPPY BEING WITH THE LORD, SEEING HIM+ FACE TO FACE. Why should I be sad ? If I walk in His+ TRUTH, I will be kept , I will be secure, I will not have anxiety, and I WILL BE HAPPY.

    Glory be to The FATHER, and to HIS Only-Begotten SON+ JESUS CHRIST, and to The Blessed HOLY SPIRIT, Who leads us into all truth. ONE GOD, The ELOHIM.

    • Sister Judith……. How true the enemy of our soul (satan) never takes time off from trying to take our joy or to compound our grief.(John 10:10). Praise God for sending the one who has given us the spirit of comfort the Lord Jesus Christ! Be Blessed in Him.
