Treasure

October 5, 2010 Donna New

…the reverent fear and worship of the Lord is your treasure and His. Isaiah 33:6

Fear of the Lord is not trembling before Him scared, but reverence, honor, worship, adoration. That’s why a lot of people kneel when they pray, to show honor and reverence. But what matters is what’s in your heart. Do you love Him? Do you want to take the time to really know Him? Does your heart worship and smile when you hear songs of praise? If you do these things or have your own way of truly giving Him honor, then you and He share a treasure. It’s a treasure to you because it’s making your heart warm and submissive. It’s a treasure to Him because His child loves Him.

Jack Sparrow is my hero. I only watched the first two movies but I like the dark tones and mystery of him and that bit of goodness that causes him to do right. He searches for treasure of gold or the Black Pearl. This treasure is not gold or silver, or a boat which are like cold, hard cash. It’s a warm treasure to be held in your heart such as the words “I love you” from your child, holding a sleeping baby for one more minute, or laughter between friends. Those are things more like the treasure that comes from reverence.

Just to imagine that He treasures when we adore Him makes me want to worship often. Not just on Saturday night or Sunday morning but all during the week. I want Him to have a lot of treasure to hold in His heart when He thinks of me.
