Making God your Source (1)
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. - Matthew 6:19-21
God must be your source if you will be a candidate for wealth in these last days. Many times, people make many things their source. There are natural resources, human resources, and spiritual resources, whatever we call it, it is like a brook or a river that comes from the fact that rain has fallen. Just give it some time, it will dry up because it takes continuous dropping of rain to keep the river flowing. The source of a river is important, anything taking from you, if the source is not taken you cannot run dry because the source is everything. Many times, as human beings we treat effects; God treats the source therefore when you make God your source, you cannot run dry.
Never treat God as if it does not matter. You cannot be focused on God if you think you are responsible to make things happen. God wants to be your source that is why God is telling us not to worry. It is lack of confidence in him that makes us carry unnecessary luggage, it is like a woman that is given a lift in a car and yet carries her luggage on her head. Anytime you enter a vehicle, provision has already been made for your luggage. God has carried us in his vehicle, we become his liability.
The scripture we read says lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal (Matthew 6:19). Do not put your trust in treasures that you start to look down on others and feel that God does not matter again in your life. Many today have made money a god. They look at it as if they have arrived, and nobody can talk to them. They do not value God's word and they see themselves as being better than others because they have money. The money that can fly away like a bird.
Have the right focus. Keep your heart jealously from the deceitfulness of riches. Let money be your servant and not your master. God has given it to you in order for you to use it to serve his purpose. Many today are blessed by God but end up losing it because they have a broken focus. God is more than things. Source is more than resources, let God be your source. We can know your heart based on your attitude to your treasure; God can measure your heart by what it is focused on. What is the priority of your life? Some are hasty to succeed; they do not want to wait.
Prayer: Father I rejoice in your strength and as my shepherd I follow you daily. You know everything because you are leading me all the way. You are the rock that can never be broken. I pledge my life to serve you as my source; Thank you Father for remaining true unto me in Jesus Name.
