Quiet Time With Jesus – Eternal Treasure

Trust and Believe (Helen Steiner Rice)

You need nothing more than God’s guidance and love

to ensure the things that you’re worthy of…

So trust in His wisdom and follow His ways

and be not concerned with the world’s empty praise,

but first seek His kingdom, and you will possess

the world’s greatest riches, which is true happiness.

The Things Above (Clay Harrison)

Be careful, friend, wherever you trod

to seek ye first the things of God,

and covet not the things of men

or worry about what might have been.

Begin each day with praise and prayer

and take God with you everywhere.

Be kind to all who pass your way

and be at peace with them today.

Lay stepping-stones that lead to God,

not stumbling blocks upon this sod.

Choose carefully the words you say;

Let it be love you give away.

Seek higher goals than those of earth

for what are the things of this world worth?

Be careful, friend, wherever you trod

to seek ye first the things of God!

“If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above…” Colossians 3:1 – Yes! Let us seek and set our affection on things above. Let us be ‘heavenly-minded’ anticipating heaven, not only in hope but in tone and temper, seeing things as God sees them.

To be heavenly-minded is a total change of perspective. Sometimes the transformation is instant (and miraculous). Sometimes it is gradual (changing over a period of time). Whichever it is, God makes all things beautiful in His time.

My Prayer

Dear Father God

Your Word is truth. Sanctify us by the truth. Father God, show us that You will do just what You say, as You continue to teach us Your way. You will make all things beautiful in Your time. Therefore, we shall trust and obey. We shall trust and pray: Thy Kingdom come! Thy Will be done on earth as it is in heaven. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen!
