I asked the Lord about a dream I could not remember. This is the understanding He gave me.
What will I spend my Life’s Wealth on? My security?
Or, will I give my all for others for the Lord and gain all I could ever conceive of?
We were all given “currency” with which to spend/buy/trade throughout our life.
(Matthew 25: 14-30, Luke 19:12-28)
But in the end… The results of what we did with what we were given is revealed:
What did you purchase with what you were given?
Did you buy that which came freely and without cost?
Those who invested in the Lord, those who invested in others, had great riches.
Those who thought of themselves had nothing: not even the great hope they all began with.
For they had traded their lives “currency” for earthly things that were now like dust.
The truth of wealth and the world will come to all!
To some later than others.
Because it, (the Truth) is operating all the time and is not hidden from any who WILL see.
To those who have eyes to see and a heart that can understand (real wealth)
No thing good is withheld from them – For “their wealth” is spread greatly abroad.
Like a sower who sows, it blesses many, and reveals it’s secret source:
THE FOUNTAIN HEAD, in the lives of those who attain it!
It beckons all; even the “poor” with much gold in their pockets, to “Come!”
Their lives are cherished by all they know; even the very poor/rich because of the beauty of their kindness, grace, compassion and Love.
Those who hold nothing in their hands, GAIN ALL in their hearts:
The REAL KINGDOM!
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, for your sakes He became poor in order that you, because of His poverty, might become rich.”
2 Corinthians 8:9 (Recovery Version)
“There is one who scatters and increases yet more,
And there is one who withholds what is appropriate but ends up only in want.
The blessing soul will prosper,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.”
Proverbs 11: 25, 26 (Recovery Version)
