This is Your Wake Up Call!

Praycation 2013 – Buried Treasure

          Word for Today – Treasure
          Read: Matthew 25: 14- 28

But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.”

God gives us gifts. Sometimes we use them. Sometimes we invest them. Sometimes we bury them under duties, responsibilities, routine and daily demands.

Somewhere along the line we forgot. We forgot the Giver of the gifts and the gifts. We stopped believing that it was Jesus who died while we were yet sinners. We forgot that Jesus rose from the grave for us, with all power in His hands. Somewhere in the living of our lives we stopped living for Christ. We buried our treasurer to do the needed and necessary. We abandoned our gifts to handle our schedules, make money and pay bills.

Did God’s call on our lives become compromised? The dreams God gave became a hazy memory as we joined the Survivor-Big Brother-Amazing Race-winner-takes-all world of ours. We grabbed what we could, circled the wagons and forgot that only what you do for Christ will last?

Welcome to Praycation. This is your opportunity to stop and reconnect with the Lord in prayer. Make time for the Lord in your day. You can do it! Start by being still in the presence of the Lord for more than a minute. Intentionally disconnect to reconnect with the Holy. Listen instead of talking. Ask God to show you your gifts and vision again for your calling.

Write down what you hear. It has more to do with listening to what God has in mind instead of you telling God what is on your mind.

Remember beloved, every good and perfect gifts comes from God. Stop burying them under excuses.

Let us Pray: Help me today Lord to take my treasure out of buried places and use them to the glory of God. In Jesus name, amen.
