What is it that you want? Wealth, health, happiness? What is it that you really crave down deep inside?
Perhaps this sounds like a broken record to some, but what would happen if our first thought, our first response to the question is "more of God". Why is it that we wonder why we are not blessed, why we are not encouraged, why we are not strengthened on a regular basis? Is it because we only think about God and church on Sundays and Wednesdays? What would our lives be like if we had God on our minds continually? Doesn't Paul encourage us to "pray without ceasing" (1 Thes. 5:17)?
Many may say, "that's easy for you to say since you're a preacher". True, I am a preacher and a pastor. That is why I have a unique view into peoples lives and can see how true the Word of God is when Jesus spoke, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matt 6:21)
How blessed we would be if we put our "treasures" into the things of God!! How blessed we would be if we wanted Jesus the most in our lives!!
