Matthew 6:20 But Store Up For Yourselves Treasures In Heaven, Where Moth And Rust Do Not Destroy, And Where Thieves Do Not Break In And Steal. 21 For Where Your Treasure Is, There Your Heart Will Be Also.
In pain, our life can seem to have no treasures at all. In pain, we struggle to just get from one point to another. In pain, we can store up many treasures in our heart that are not of God's will. What do we do? What do we do when we have stored up the wrong treasures? A place to start is to find one treasure you believe God will embrace and love. The first treasure is the love of Christ. In pain, you may find the love of Christ to be a million miles away. However, you must hang on. You must never abandon God in any circumstance. In pain, we must sometimes go through the motions until God brings us to a place where our pain is gone. In pain, we must keep our mental picture of the ideal world or paradise. Our mental picture of our ideal world is the world we will inherit without our pain, except…none of our pictures of any of our ideal worlds will even be remotely close to the wonder and awe of the ideal world God has prepared for us.
