The Key Is Not The Treasure

I want you to think of money as a tool, not a value.

Money in itself means nothing. It is like a key that unlocks a door. The key itself has little value, but what it may unlock in your life is often priceless.

Use money as a tool to accomplish your need.

Focus on the win. Do not expect chance to feed your soul but stride forward–purpose to know–purpose to become whole.

I don’t want you to worry about money, that is not your concern. I will supply what you need; the end becomes the beginning of a new open door. Have you ever noticed that you never stay facing a closed door? You turn to a new direction–never backward for that is retreat.

Come, find the way that knows no defeat.

Doors will open and doors will close, but the path is unending for those who will hear. Use what you are supplied to unlock your future. The way will be clear–only when you hear.

“And now I commend you to God and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

I coveted no one’s silver or gold or apparel. You yourselves know that these hands ministered to my necessities, and to those who were with me. In all things I have shown you that by so toiling one must help the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” Acts 20:32-35

 

Just a Moment

You don’t know when you may touch another’s life; be it little or big, a moment or a lifetime; you may spend a moment and last a lifetime.

You’ll never know, you say. But, you will know–some day.

So spend the moment; invest it in another’s life, like it is the value of a lifetime–a lifeline. Seek to know, into the soul of one you may never know.

In a moment of a lifetime, it may just be the moment that changes their forever. You may be the key that unlocks their door to eternity.

You just may be key.

Will you do it for Me? Just a moment

For Me

“And he made from one every nation of men to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their habitation, that they should seek God, in the hope that they might feel after him and find him. Yet he is not far from each one of us, for ‘In him we live and move and have our being’, as even some of your poets have said, “For we are indeed his offspring.'” Acts 17:26-28

“And the Lord said to Paul one night in a vision, “Do not be afraid, but speak and do not be silent; for I am with you, and no man shall attack you to harm you; for I have many people in this city.”” Acts 18:9-10

“‘I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness.'” Isaiah 42:6-7

“Conduct yourselves wisely toward outsiders, making the most of the time. Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer every one.” Colossians 4:5-6

“Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with brotherly affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Never flag in zeal, be aglow with the Spirit, serve the Lord.” Romans 12:9-11

 

 

Let It Flow!

Your mouth holds the power to loose and the power to bind; it is the key that unlocks your heart. For out of your belly shall flow rivers of living waters, but if you open not your mouth it shall not flow–a dam that binds a spirit so.

Your spirit is meant to be free, active and producing fruit.

Have you ever looked at fruit that has died on the vine? It is dried, shriveled, withered and if you touch it it falls–it is barely hanging on. If you don’t go near it, it will eventually fall on its own, even though the vine is still alive. The fruit dries, falls, because it became ripe, but had no use.

Open your mouth–make use of your spirit.

Out of your belly shall flow rivers of living waters. You have the power to bind on earth and it shall be bound in Heaven. What you loose on earth shall be loosed in Heaven. You will free a man by speaking forgiveness. The act of your mouth, your choice to speak, opens your heart to truly forgive.

You can bind a man with words that perpetuate the sin or loose him with words of forgiveness and love.

“If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” John 20:23

Your mouth is the key that frees your spirit to do My work.

Love–the key to your heart.

Your mouth–the key to your spirit.

Unlock them both and let it flow!

“Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might understand the gifts bestowed on us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who possess the Spirit. The unspiritual man does not receive the gifts of the Spirit of God for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.” I Corinthians 2:12-14

“In the last day that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, ‘If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.’ (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)” John 7:37-39 KJV

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide; so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you. This I command you, to love one another.” John 15:16-17

“Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18

“And he said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all  your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself.'” Matthew 22:37-39

“Then Peter came up and said to him, ‘Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?’ Jesus said to him, ‘I do not say to you seven times, but seventy times seven.'” Matthew 18:21-22

“Then his lord summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you besought me; and should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you? And in anger his lord delivered him to the jailers, till he should pay all his debt. So also my heavenly Father will do to every one of you, if you do not forgive your brother from your heart.'” Matthew 18:32-35

“The mouth of the righteous is a fountain of life, but the mouth of the wicked conceals violence.” Proverbs 10:11

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5

 

 

The Hidden Nugget

Relax your fingernails–they are digging in too hard. You need to trust Me more. I AM sufficient for you in all things.

I complete you.

Allow Me to direct your day, before you get ‘caught away’ in various tasks that may keep you busy, but may not be productive toward your goal–that of your call.

  • Wisdom is the key that opens the door of understanding.
  • Seek wisdom–call for it in prayer.
  • Study My Word for nuggets of Truth, hidden in plain sight.

So much is lost when one fails to pray and listen within before opening the Word. For if you would make this your practice, I will guide you as you read, and you will find great fulfillment in the scriptures–the living Word. It shall become alive within you as you eat of it–the life-giving Word. Manna from Heaven. You will find your study time will no longer be a drudgery, but an anticipated event, for it will satisfy and settle your heart.

If you love Me, then love My Word. For we are one and the same. Food for your soul–the Living Word.

Words for life

“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. for the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you; understanding will guard you; delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech–” Proverbs 2:1-12

“Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gets understanding, for the gain from it is better than gain from silver and its profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who lay hold of her; those who hold her fast are called happy.” Proverbs 3:13-18

“The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding he established the heavens; by his knowledge the deeps broke forth, and the clouds drop down the dew. My son, keep sound wisdom and discretion; let them not escape from your sight, and they will be life for your soul and adornment for your neck. Then you will walk on your way securely and your foot will not stumble. If you sit down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.” Proverbs 3:19-24

“–“Let you heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live; do not forget, and do not turn away from the words of my mouth. Get wisdom; get insight. Do not forsake her, and she will keep you; love her, and she will guard you. the beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom, and whatever you get, get insight. Prize her highly, and she will exalt you; she will honor you if you embrace her. She will place on your head a fair garland; she will bestow on you a beautiful crown.” Proverbs 4:4b-9

How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor?” “Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory for ever. Amen.” Romans 11:33-36

“Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ Jesus then said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world.’ They said to him ‘Lord, give us this bread always.’ Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.'” John 6:31-35
