The Hidden Treasure

volcano behind a city hidden in fog

Walking through the streets of the settlement of Sea Grape, Grand Bahama, Bahamas, I saw an unusual sight! There it stood, a slender tree which had grown up outside of the walls of the church and it had surpassed even the roof extending into the skies laden with bright yellow flowers on its branches but no one in the entire church could see it.  I awakened it was all a dream which left me puzzled! The Word spoke up from Isaiah 53 beginning from (1)” Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?” (2)”For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant. And as a root out of dry ground.  He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.” (3)” He is despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.  And we hid, as it were our faces from Him, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.” (4)” Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.” (5)” But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” Pause right there and calmly think on the passage of scripture you just read! Now right where you are you may be experiencing grief and sorrow not for the things you have done but because of the hidden treasure in you and you are feeling like not going on.  The Word is speaking from 2 Corinthians 4:7-11 (7)” But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.” (8)” We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;” (9)” Persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed,” (10)” always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also maybe manifested in our body.” Kindly read on. (11)” For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.” Can you see the hidden treasure in you above the turmoil and the noise of the Nay Sayers especially your very own? As you ponder on your answer listen to the Word as it resounds again from Isaiah 53:5 “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.’ Listen, can I tell you? Tell me what, you may say? I am so glad you asked and in response I will tell you, Jesus Christ is the KEY to unlocking the hidden treasure within you, to access surrender yourself completely to Him and allow Him to heal your mind, will and emotions! The Word is speaking again, Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” You have been forgiven, now forgive yourself! You are fearfully and wonderfully made precious in the sight of Yahweh, the God who has redeemed you and calls you His beloved! He kept you while you were in your mother’s womb and placed within you hidden gifts to propel you to your divine destiny to bring glory and honour to His name! You are destined for greatness and like the slender tree which grew up outside of the walls of the church those gifts within you are the hidden treasure which will be unveiled for the entire world to see that it is Jesus Christ, the Greater One who rules and reigns on the throne of your heart! Give Him thanks and praise for the hidden treasure is being revealed!
