Buying The Field

  • Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in the field, which a man found, and hid. In his joy, he goes and sells all that he has, and buys that field. Matthew 13:44 WEB.

    Jesus told a parable about a man who found some hidden treasure in a field. He joyfully sold all that he had so he could buy the land and make it his own. The man couldn't take the treasure without first purchasing the field. And though it cost him everything he had, it was absolutely worth it. His total sacrifice to buy the field brought him a great treasure in the end.

    Jesus is a lot like the treasure in the field. When you truly get a glimpse of Him, nothing else seems to matter. You will joyfully give up all the things that used to seem so important. And the more you give up for His sake, the more He will give back to you in return.

    Jesus said, "Most certainly I tell you, there is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or land, for my sake, and for the sake of the Good News, but he will receive one hundred times more now in this time: houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and land, with persecutions; and in the age to come eternal life. Mark 10:29-30 WEB.

    Yet, I am talking about the things that He is asking you to change in your life. Not what various religious traditions have told you. You can usually ignore those because you don't need to become a replica of someone else to please God. Just walk with Him and talk with Him each day of your life, and He will gradually bring the right changes to pass at the right time.

    The Kingdom of God is free, yet in the end, it will cost you everything. If you don't let go of the things that hold you back, the things you hold dearer than God, then you cannot have the treasure hidden within it. You have to commit and buy the field. The price is high. Stay the course, and stay committed, for there will be an excellent reward for those who do.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I choose Your way. Please lead me into all that You have for me. Bring the changes to my life that need to be done. Help me to grow ever closer to You. Forgive me of the things I have done wrong, and fill me afresh with Your Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: For those following the Creation Photography weekly challenges, group leader, Dianna Wyles: Proverbs 4:23 "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." ~ 'It's a Heart Thing' will be our next fun-tastic theme and is wide open for creative interpretation so go find hearts in nature like me or show us your hearts' desires! What is near and dear to your heart? What do you guard with all your heart? Sky's the limit! As this is a favorite theme of mine, I am so very excited to see y'all's heart things!!! Have a wonderful week and remember, the best way to guard your heart is to fill it with God's love. God bless! Here is the link: Creation Photographers

My Doctor told me to drink a smoothie during the day since i dont eat breakfast or lunch. For some reason it constantly skip my mind to buy the ingredients to make smoothies. This is a change that I need to wwork on. I also plan to try and lose some weight this year so that I can have more energy. I drink coffee but once it wears off I become completely tired. So prayfully I can remember to take better care of myself. Today I am working and thats a good thing. Inspite of whats been going on lately I have still been going to work. Blessed Be.
