Lay Up Treasures in Heaven

Society is always encouraging us to get more and save more because the more you have the happier you are. Yeah, right!

Of course, as pastors’ wives, we know our treasures should be laid up in heaven. Now, I am not saying we shouldn’t use common sense and save; we should. But I also know how most pastoral families live from pay check to pay check and that is sometimes hard or almost impossible. But I want to share a devotional with you that hopefully will encourage you because sometimes the financial part of life can get us down.

Every time you affirm your trust in Me, you put a coin into My treasury. Thus you build up equity in preparation for days of trouble. I keep safely in My heart all trust invested in Me, with interest compounded continuously. The more you trust Me, the more I empower you to do so.

Practice trusting Me during quiet days, when nothing much seems to be happening. Then when storms come, your trust balance will be sufficient to see you through. Store up for yourself treasure in heaven, through placing your trust in Me. This practice will keep you in My Peace.

Psalm 56:3-4 “When I am afraid, I will trust in you. In God, whose word I praise in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?”

So when life and finances seem to discourage you and get you down, remember to put your trust in  Him. He will not let you down.
