THE WEEKLY WALK – 2/6/13
hey everybody, hope you are well & the new year is starting off good. it’s been a challenging new year so far for me to say the least.
first off thanks to everyone who came out to all of the shows in january. we saw so many new faces and played for so many new crowds, it was absolutely fantastic. great nights of worship. thanks to all of your generosity we had 22 kids get sponsored in the last month via @worldvision. really awesome stuff. thank you.
i was reading tonight from the gospel of Luke and one thing stood out to me, this verse: Luke 12:34 – “34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Made me think, where is my treasure? What is the one thing or things that i constantly crave? Where do i go at the end of the day? Well the proper answer to that question is….God. Right? Isn’t that the christian answer to this question? That’s what Jesus was going for…i think? Let’s be honest. I can’t say that that is the answer that i have to that question. For me it should be God but…it’s my family, my music, my work, my relationship with my wife so many other things. So many things that i put before God. So many things that get in the way of God. Where is my treasure? What is my treasure? Oh, that verse cut like a knife tonight.
To answer this question we need to have time to think about the question. That’s the catch. There’s no time to think about the question. I was listening to an interview on a podcast recently. It was an interview with an artist that i really respect. The question came up about after all of the grammy’s won, all of the stuff that this guy has accomplished, what is the biggest challenge he still has to face?
His answer was simple. The biggest challenge he has to face is finding the ability to rest. He said that the Lord wants us to rest and just breathe. We move all the time, our brains never stop. God just wants to be with us and we move too quickly. God wants to speak to us and we never have time to listen. It’s so hard to find that place of rest but there’s a way to rest and still be very successful and get things done.
I almost drove off the road. Time. Time is the one thing that gets stolen from us every single day. Every single moment. Time is the one thing that never stops and the one thing that we so easily let get away from us. The one thing we so easily give away.
So i asked the question before, or actually Jesus asked the question in Luke. Where is your treasure, because where your treasure is there your heart will be also. Finding that treasure starts with finding the time to actually find that treasure. Take the time to seek the kingdom of God. Take the time to seek His face. Seek His will in your life and when we do that, He will reveal to us the treasure in our hearts.
