Day 11 - Blessings are Our Treasures
The LORD will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow. Deuteronomy 28:12
A treasure is something held in high regard and often has great value. God wants to give us the treasures of wisdom, knowledge and understanding. These things will help keep us in the center of His will. He wants wisdom and knowledge to be at our disposal no matter what we have assigned to us. It will enable us to perform well and with a spirit of excellence.
We may experience times in our lives when things feel crazy and confusing. At those times God wants to come with the treasure of understanding to help bring us out of that place. God will give us an understanding heart. His gifts come to enrich our lives in the same way the natural rain enriches the earth and causes things to flourish.
God blessed Solomon with so much wisdom that people would come from other countries to hear what he had to say. We can prosper to the point wherein there more than enough for ourselves and we can give to others. God wants us to be a voice of wisdom and understanding to those that He has placed around us.
So, we pray: Dear God, give us wisdom and understanding. Help us not to keep making foolish mistakes. Amen.
