“I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my necessary food” (Job 23:12).
Jesus Is My Heart’s Treasure
A love that I can’t begin to measure
He has been there all along–
A hidden love that has grown so strong.
I praise you my Lord for a gift so true–
This unconditional love I found in you.
Mere words could never describe
The total fulfillment you’ve made in my life.
Before the true revelation of your love for me
I was walking along in life so aimlessly;
Now it is plain for me to see
That walking with you is full of blessings.
I give you my life to do as you may–
Forever in your guidance I will stay;
Continue to mold me in your image I pray;
Fill me with your love and mercy each day.
Glory be to the holy one,
Praises I give to the Father and Son;
Holy Spirit I have invited thee
To dwell forever inside of me. –Linda Begley
It is amazing that we are precious in His sight, and He loves us! (Isaiah 43:4). How great is His love He has lavished on us, “that we should be called His children; and such we are” (1 John 3:1).
While saying her evening prayers a little girl paused momentarily, then continued, “God, it must be hard for You to love everybody. We have only four in my family, and it’s hard for me to love all of them.”
How very blessed we are! Loved beyond measure. He has promised to be with us, never forsaking us; to walk with us each step of the way (Hebrews 13:5). There is no going back in our walk with God – it is no longer who we are. Gone are the ways we used to live and the things we used to do.
We need to know God through His Word! It is His personal love letter to us, and He wants nothing but the very best for His children. No one can ever drive a wedge between us and His love for us—there is no way! (Romans 8:35-39). We all have fallen short; we have failed Him so terribly. Yet nothing we have done has changed God’s mind about us, and nothing ever will. His love remains constant and unconditional; “His mercy endures forever” (Psalm 136:1).
We bring tremendous joy to God as we give ourselves in complete surrender to Him. This is the essence of worship. Why not worship Him now as you read aloud the above poem and treasure Him more than your necessary food?
