(Make The Discovery Of Your Hidden Treasures!)
By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
TO THE BIBLE: “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” (Psalm 24:1)
In Isaiah 45:3, the Lord said, “I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.” Wow, that should make you scream and shout for joy! The wealth and riches of this world belong to God, and the good news is everything that belongs to God belongs to you because you’re His heir: “…If you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).
You have full access to the vast treasures and resources on the earth—both tapped and untapped—for your heavenly Father owns everything. What the Lord said through the Prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 45:3 was a promise to the children of Israel—those living in the Old Testament. However, for us in the New Testament, that promise has become a present-hour reality!
The treasures and hidden riches of secret places have already been delivered to you. That’s why the Bible declares that all things are yours (1 Corinthians 3:21). Long before you were born, God deposited great reserves of treasure for you in this world; the Bible describes it in Ephesians 3:8 as “…the unsearchable riches of Christ”—meaning inexhaustible wealth! Let this become your mindset, and it will be impossible for you to lack any good thing in life.
Discover your inestimable riches and inheritance in Christ, and begin to enjoy them. As you constantly study the Word and fellowship with the Spirit, you’ll receive insight into reality; the Spirit of God will help you discover the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places.
Go Deeper: Psalm 24:1; 1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12
Speak: Father, I thank you for opening the eyes of my spirit to discover the treasures and inestimable riches that you’ve laid up for me in life. I declare that this is my time to discover and enjoy the treasures and hidden riches in secret places, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
