DCLM Daily Manna 28 January 2019 Devotional – Heart’s Treasure by Pastor W. F. Kumuyi
TOPIC: Heart’s Treasure
TEXT: Nehemiah 1:1-3
KEY VERSE: “That Hanani, one of my brethren, came, he and certain men of Judah; and I asked them concerning the Jews that had escaped, which were left of the captivity, and concerning Jerusalem” – (Nehemiah 1:2).
MESSAGE (DCLM Daily Manna 28 January 2019 Devotional ):
A man’s heart is upon what he treasures most. He carries it in his heart, sleeps and wakes with it and goes about with it day and night.
Nehemiah’s patriotism and fervent love for the holy land was something deep in his heart but it is seen in his passion and quest for information concerning Jerusalem. Though he appeared to have lived all his life in exile, he loved the holy city, Jerusalem, and was in waiting expectation of a return to the homeland to help remove the reproach of the broken down walls. Nehemiah’s comfortable position in the palace did not reduce his interest and commitment to Jerusalem. His inquiry concerning the state of the inhabitants and of the city itself revealed a heart burdened for the people of God. He appeared to have no other burden outside his necessary daily duties but this. No wonder, the Lord sent those men his way to satisfy his heart that was longing and praying for the city. DCLM Daily Manna 28 January 2019 Devotional
If we have such intense yearning and desire for God and His word as Nehemiah did toward Jerusalem and its people, we would become recipients of His grace, holiness and great power. We fail to receive definite inspirations and answers to prayers because our hearts are filled with earthly cares instead of God’s word.
Bad dreams, evil thoughts, fear, defeats, etc. do not abide in a heart like that of Nehemiah. If our hearts will always look heavenward, our visions shall be of the Lord of glory and great possibilities. Therefore, “…set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” (Colossians 3:1,2).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Lay up treasures in heaven, that thine heart be heavenwards.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Exodus 39-40
