Hidden Treasures

cb devo may 14“I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.” Isaiah 45:3 (NIV)

Saturday mornings were Grandma’s Day. She gathered up her granddaughters and we’d head out to gather treasures. One sedan and four giggling little girls with ponytails enjoying the ride. From neighborhood to neighborhood, Grandma strategically had her plan in place – hit as many yard sales as possible. We always ended up with some amazing finds that Grandma eventually ended up sharing with someone else. Us grands just loved the adventure.

Have you ever found the sweetness of hidden treasure in your adventures? It usually appears when we least expect it and in the most unlikely places. And sometimes it requires a strategic plan so we won’t miss an incredible find. Every time, we gather at the feet of Jesus, He amazes us with sweet nuggets. Truths unveiled and hope that sustains. Digging deep, He leads us to the word we need in that moment. Searching intently, Jesus reveals wisdom that forms a protective barrier around our lives. Leaning in close, He whispers worth, value and dismisses our insecurities. In the midst of worship, Jesus ushers us deep into His presence where peace and confidence abides.

Awesome treasures meant to be shared, given away and not kept for just one. Adventures that remind us all of His goodness, faithfulness and nearness. Laughter that lifts weary souls and joy that dances even in the rain. Clarity that ignites worship despite the silence. And amazing finds that are uncovered in every day moments when hearts are fixed on Jesus.

“Sweet Jesus, You invite each of us to experience the adventure of a lifetime – sweet treasures revealed to those who seek You with all their heart, mind and soul – incredible riches found in Your presence.”

For His Glory
