A Table Of Treasure

“I will give you hidden treasures, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, who summons you by name.
Isaiah 45:3

Sometimes we don’t realize just how special we really are. Underneath all the external we have hidden treasures ready to expose! And just like the scriptures reveals, He is the one that has given us this hidden treasure.

Most people struggle where they don’t feel important, valued, special, recognized, appreciated, noticed or even loved! But God is reminding us of this love. Reminding us of how treasured we really are.

I kept going to a relatives house for dinner. Having special feasts served at this tall table. Until one day I heard something drop while I was eating. It was actually a box under the table that I didn’t see. There were many hidden items. All arranged neatly in a storage section under the table. All the time I was eating at the table not realizing there was more valuable items underneath.

That is how we are. We don’t realize our full potential, our capacity, gifts and talents that God has hidden inside of us. Until we search deep. Until we allow ourselves to be seen regardless of what we think may happen. It takes courage, faith and hope to do the things God has designed for us. To be the person that He has called us to be!

You may think you are not worthy, not enough or fallen short! But God is calling you to believe the very best about YOU!

I encourage you now to step out in faith! BE BRAVE! You may have heard this before… but I remind you again. Don’t give up, don’t be compacent, don’t go back to nothing when there are SO MANY hidden treasures waiting IN you.

Here is what He is saying to you:

“Since you are precious and honored in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, ‘Give them up!’ and to the south, ‘Do not hold them back.’ Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth— everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.””
Isaiah 43:4-7 NIV

Remember, it is not just about the first things on display. There are hidden treasures inside that make you valuable in your own unique way! ♥️
