The Treasure You Seek Is Inside

The Treasure You Seek Is Inside ~
Bring It Out!


“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory,”   Colossians 1:27.

The Treasure Seeker

I love to find treasure in the middle of trash!  I have loved that since I was a child.

I love finding things unexpectedly.  I love thrift stores.  There is something very exciting to me about finding a name brand article in the midst of a bunch of throw away’s.

The LORD reminded me this morning that this is what He came to do.  He died so that He could take these old worn out, people who are tired of life and tired of the same old thing….  Getting up, going to work, coming home, going to bed, and doing it all over again….

When I found Jesus, I found the pearl of great price!  I found what life was really about.  My life became focused!  I finally found my rhythm in life!  I felt connected to the source of life.  I found excitement, joy and purpose!

Understanding Our Inheritance Is In Us

“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,”   Ephesians 1:18.

When I asked Him to come in, I began to search for the treasure that He promised us that was ours in him and truly I now am finding that this treasure I seek is inside of me.

The LORD said to me once that we were not drawing on this treasure to it’s full potential in our life.  He said that each one of us have universes inside of us!

He died to place inside of everyone of us, the potential to create and because of our own fears, we won’t let ourselves dream and create new things that no one has ever created before.  We are stuck in our own little boxes of fear, religion, doubt, sickness, and self pity etc….

I implore you today, don’t wait until you are old to reach your full potential because one day you will regret that you did not start when you were young.  He wants to tell even the older saints that it is not too late to start.

If you are here, then he has purpose that needs to be birthed in you and treasure that needs to come out of you in this season.

God Spoke at 12:12

He spoke this morning and said, “It is time to seek the treasure inside and it is time to bring it out and put it on display for the world to see.

Be all that I have called you to be, bring forth all that I have invested in you!

Truly, the world, the flesh and the devil will try and stop you but it is time for my sons and daughters to bring forth the treasure that I have placed in them!

It is time for you to not only dream but do all that I will show you in your dreams.  

This is the time of creativeness!

This is a time of innovation in the earth!  

This is a time if you dance to dance and if you sing to sing!

There is beauty and beautiful things inside of you waiting to be unwrapped and discovered!  Truly the treasure you are seeking is inside of you!

Go now My treasure seekers and find all that I have hidden in you!  It is truly time to shine!”
