Heavenly Father, good morning! Thank you for revitalized friendships. Thank you for coffeeshops that allow conversations off to the side yet not in private. Thank you for your Word that you gave to us and thank you to all those who kept it intact and translated it into our own language! And thank you for the scripture for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:
[Jesus said:] Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. (Matthew 6:19-21)
Lord, I’m here again. I’m here as I am every day, on behalf of your daughter you love. Lindsey, I pray a big prayer for you today. I pray that God would help you to see where your treasures really are. Are they a collection of beautiful violins? Are they a throng of people screaming with enjoyment during one of your performances? Is your treasure racking up a billion views on YouTube? All these seem to be a result of God’s favor on your life. Yet, Jesus today seems to be reminding you to take care! Be careful about what exactly you treat as your ultimate treasure! I pray that God would give you many opportunities in the coming week for you to DO THINGS that matter for God’s kingdom. I pray that God would open doors for you in this regard. I pray that you would recognize these opportunities and that you would have the courage to walk through the doors, that you can bravely walk on the path God shows you! Look into your heart today Lindsey. Double-check it. It is following after what you treasure most. I pray that today you would be accumulating treasures in heaven. I pray that you will set out to store up more heavenly treasures this day. I pray that the desires of your heart would be heavenly today, and that it would be evident to all those around you. And all the glory goes to God. The glory is all his. I pray this in the name and authority of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen
“Do not accumulate for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal. But accumulate for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
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.
