Matthew 13:44 God’s kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field. One day a man found the treasure. He hid it again and was so happy that he went and sold everything he owned and bought the field.

If someone could give you the one thing that you really, really want, what would it be? Think about it. And then, when you had it, would it satisfy you deep down for the rest of your days on this earth? Well, would it?

Somehow we all seem to be on a treasure hunt, looking for that one thing – that hidden treasure – that’ll make our life complete. What we’re searching for is that deep sense of satisfaction and contentment. And until we find it, something will always be missing.

Now, different people look in different places and come up with different answers. And for a while, we can think that we’ve found it – whatever it is – but as the days and weeks slip by, we’re forced into the conclusion that “Nah, that wasn’t it after all!”

And do you know why that is? It’s because we’ve been designed by God – ultimately only to be completely and deeply satisfied in a rich and bountiful relationship with Him. That’s it.

Jesus put it this way:

Matthew 13:44 God’s kingdom is like a treasure hidden in a field. One day a man found the treasure. He hid it again and was so happy that he went and sold everything he owned and bought the field.

That strikes a chord with me. I’d tried pretty much everything under the sun to satisfy me and make me content, but nothing worked. It wasn’t, I can assure you, for lack of trying.

And then one day, as if by accident, I stumbled across this hidden treasure – Jesus. Now, I didn’t physically go and sell everything I had, but on the inside I laid it all down at His feet … not because I had to, but because of the joy at finally finding that treasure.

Life’s never been the same since. Finally, I found it. Jesus.

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.

My biggest desire and hope is that my family will come to know Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, that I will be a good witness before them and so many others I come in contact with that they too will find what they are searching for. Your articles each day are so very relevant and encourage me to keep trusting God in every situation (not always straightforward). I’m only saved 2 years and have been so blessed by your devotionals, not too heavy a read and perfect for an afternoon top up to keep me on track throughout the day. May God bless you in your ministry.
Thank.you!

PRAISE GOD FOR BEING THE TREASURE WE NEED. HELP US ALL TO TRULY SEEK YOU LORD DAILY. DELIVER US LORD FROM THE WILES OF THE DEVIL. GIVE US MORE LOVE AND A FORGIVING HEART. FOR BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE ALL HEALED IF WE ACCEPT THE LORD.

That is the desire in my heart for all people . That they may find Jesus as I have too! My prayer is daily that all my family and all those who I touch will get to know Him . I prayer is that I won’t be a hindrance to to the Gospel or make it look cheap or something that they don’t want because of me . I love His word and I thank you for sending me your emails . I often tell others about the encouragement I get from you and your ministry . . cheers
