Where your treasure is, there your heart will be.  You will love what you consider to be your source of life. You will be devoted to that source. Whatever you believe can satisfy you, will receive your affection.  I have delivered you many times over from placing your affections on the things of earth, because these things are temporary and precarious. But I am constant. I am the true source of life and forgiveness. I have loved you with an everlasting love, and I am drawing you with chords of kindness.  I have given you the choice of loving Me. I will not force you. ~God

Prayer: Father God, I have tried the ways of the world and all have left me empty. I confess this and ask your forgiveness for rejecting You and choosing to dull my senses with things of the world. I confess even hoping in things and people that I imagine could bring life, and thinking, like Adam and Eve, that You were holding out on Me. I choose this day to set my mind on You, the Author and Perfector of my faith. I ask You to cause me to know that You are my satisfaction, to help me with my unbelief, because I do believe.  You are the One my heart loves.

Ephesians 3:18 I pray that you may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the length and width, height and depth of God’s love and to know the Messiah’s love that surpasses knowledge, so you may be filled with all the fullness of God.

Amos 5-14 Seek good, and not evil, that you may live: and so the Lord, the God of hosts, shall be with you.

Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf.
