Being Eternally Driven

 

Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be. Matthew 6:19-21 NLT

 

            I had some free time today at work and was spending some time with God and he really blew me away as I was praying and asking for clarity in my finances. He first showed me that I really needed to begin to look deep within myself, at my real motives that I have hidden inside. So I began to think of all the fleshly desires that I do have financially; new truck, surfing toys, trips amongst many other things. This honesty with myself really helped God show me why right now he may not want to give me the financial increase that I desire. If my true motives for financial increase are centered on fleshly desires, this overpowers my desires of blessing others. Things we buy are awesome today but are outdated and rotting tomorrow.Matthew 6:19-21.

           

            Other scriptures began to come to mind, one was right in front of me. The first was Luke 12:15, which Jesus warns us to beware of all covetousness or greed and that life, is not measured by how much possessions we have. God is so amazing how he can just humble us right there on site with the living word of God if we really seek him. Coveting is exactly what I have been doing deep in my heart. Even though my mind has been saying “God I really would bless people if I had just had some financial increase.”

 

            I really dug deep into my true motives and saw that my flesh would probably overpower those desires to bless others, and I probably would want my toys.

 

The LORD’S light penetrates the human spirit,

exposing every hidden motive. Proverbs 20:27 NLT

 

Something else God showed me was through some hopes and dreams my wife and I have. As a family we really have some big dreams of traveling. One place my wife and I want to go to is Italy. God basically gave me a spiritual wake up slap! Although going to Italy would be really cool, beautiful and all those great things God said: “what comes out of that trip for me?” He said “Yes Italy is cool because I created it, but in comparison to heaven it does not stand a chance.”
