If you will obey me and keep my covenant, you will be my own special treasure from among all nations of the earth; for all the earth belongs to me.
(Exodus 19:5 (NLT))
How would you like to be called God’s special treasure?
Think about what this truly means.
God has given us an insight into the importance of treasure to the one who treasures it. He has given us insight into how He sees and understands treasure.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
(Matthew 6:21 (NIV))
Think about that passage in relation to the meaning of being called God’s own special treasure. If we are God’s own special treasure, then, according to His own words, His heart is also with us.
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?
(Romans 8:31 (NIV))
What an awesome realization that God treasures those who keep His commands. If we are His treasure, then His heart is for us. If He is for us, nothing can be against us that will harm us.
I can think of nothing that would please me more than to know that God considers me to be part of His special treasure.
Are you part of God’s special treasure?
