Gold and silver have I none.
Now I love the Lord because he first loved me and not because of what I can get from him.Psalm 103:2 clearly states they are benifits for praising God and throught out the entire bible we can clearly see that .I don't know about you but I decree those benifits every single day praise the Lord and hallelujah,my momma didn't raise no fool!
Truth be it,I can't take those things into eternity with the Lord with me they are only temporal.Whether I have gold or silver or not what's most important are the things we can take into eternity with us.Often that gold and silver causes many people to spend eternity in the wrong place because of greed,covet,theft you name it.Matthew 6:19-21 says:
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Do I want gold and silver yes do I pray for it to meet my needs ?yes,is it my priority no because I get all my benifits any way by seeking the Lord first.
(There is someone behind the scenes in a situation righ now where your priorities are twisted,where you are digging for gold with out the director and the pressures of your circumstances are overwhelming you but the route you are going down is dangerous and you are on your own the Lord stopped a few miles ago and he's saying to come back to me for you have strayed away from me,you are chasing the gold and silver like one chases a bird.Come back home to me for what is mine is thine and you need not go a hunting for I am the maker and the keeper of the gold and the silver ,I am the treasurer and I will never leave you nor forsake you so cast everyone of your cares and burdens upon me because I care for you and I love you.)
The wisdom key is to don't seek the gold and silver,seek the owner of the gold and silver and you will have gold and silver.
Shalom and love
