Do you find hidden treasure?

"If thou seekest her as silver, and searcheth for her as hidden treasure." Proverbs 2:4

Do you dig into God's Word?

Do you just read to be reading?

Do you like adventure?

Do you ever wonder why?

Do you want to know how to attain wisdom?

Do you know what is right, just and fair?

Do you need extra instruction for your daily life?

Do you need practical insight and guidelines for life?

Do you like to know what the answer is too certain things?

Do you know that the Bible has all your answers for your problems!

The Bible deals with things such as sex and marriage, youth and discipline, family life, self control, resisting temptation, immorality, business matters, health and prosperity, how we use our words, and how the tongue can be hurtful or helpful. It covers moral truth, poverty and best of all having an intimate relationship with our loving God.

God's Word is timely.

God never fails!

God's Word is for our every need.

There are reminders and admonitions that provide sound advice for our life!

When we go looking for that hidden treasure we are looking for what God has to say.

It is like when you find a treasure map, and then you start the hunt.

Generally you will get what you need - in this case it is God's Word.

Then you start to look for clues, once you find a clue then you go to the next until you have recovered all clues.

When you have recovered all clues it will take you to the hidden treasure.

God's Word is like that.

He will only give you a piece of the puzzle and want you to start digging on your own.

As you start digging into God's Word, He will start revealing things that you did not know.

He will also show you how to handle what you are going through.

There is nothing that has happened to us that has not first gone through God's hands!

When we start to take heed to God's Word, then we shall start to see a change in our life.

God will give us wisdom and victory as we become responsible with what He has given us.

It goes back to finding that hidden treasure, it is going to take some work.

It is through that persistent work that He will guide us and reward us.

We must follow God in all our ways and He will direct our paths.

"In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." Proverbs 3:6

This means in all areas of our life not just a few.

Do you acknowledge God in every area of you life?

Do you listen to His advice?

Did you know that when we listen to God and do as He has instructed that we are helping to fulfill His purpose in our life.

We should always be willing to listen and then be corrected if necessary.

We are also to use God's Word - the Bible as our guide.

We are to follow God's leading, cause when we do He will guide and protect us.

God knows what is best for us!

We are not to lean on our own understanding, but God's understanding and wisdom.

We are to trust God in every choice we make, everything that we do.

God is a sovereign.

God can and will do what He deems is necessary.

So why should we get offended at God, when it is in our best interest?

"It is not light or trifling matter, it is a truth, that above all others, should stir the depths of our nature." Charles Spurgeon
