It’s easy to exchange the bad things in our life for the blessings of God, but He is also worth far more than anything we love and treasure. When we truly love God and want Him to be our Lord, we not only surrender the bad things in our life, but also willingly surrender and give Him control of what we consider dear to us. When we value God more than anything else we hold esteemed, His blessings freely flow! Everything good that I have loved and surrendered to God, He has blessed it, perfected it, protected it, and placed it back in my hands to enjoy. Incredible!
“Again, the Kingdom of Heaven is like a merchant on the lookout for choice pearls. When he discovered a pearl of great value, he sold EVERYTHING he owned and bought it! (Matt 13:45,46 NLT)
