Treasures in Heaven
19 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Is your life built on what others think of you?
If your life built on what your parents expect from you?
Is your life built on a career, something that might shift and change?
Is your life built on money, accruing more stuff, more houses, more clothes? (where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal)
Is your life built on finding the perfect guy/girl? (there is no such thing as perfection)
Is your life built on fame and reputation? (someone will always have something to say)
My life is built on Jesus.
I’ve lived my life for others before, I was a mommy pleaser, I tried to be the good Asian daughter, the driven and accomplished model citizen, but then I followed Jesus into entrepreneurship, freelancing, eventually answering the call to be a pastor to the lost sheep. I had no reputation, I actually gained haters and gained ill repute with some family members. I have trolls on my blog.
But I think that if I didn’t answer my call, I wouldn’t be praying for people who have breast cancer, I would be healing broken hearted people, I wouldn’t be praying over homeless people “you are not an orphan, but a son of God, I break off the spirit of orphan, fear and rejection, you are not a criminal, but forgiven”.
There is no better feeling than knowing that YOU’VE imparted TRUE identity to someone.
To tell them YOU ARE FREE! No longer under condemnation.
YOU ARE FREE.
A testimony from the other day:
Today I felt led to pray for a lady in the bathroom and after she said, next time pray for me again. I have cancer. She said I have breast cancer and am going through treatment. So I prayed for her again. This time in a vision I actually saw her breast grow back, have never seen that but I said yes you are healed.
Then later on I picked up a 5 cents coin and looked up to see a homeless man. I prayed for this man Dean and he told me his story. His coworker was trying to harm him and he reacted with violence. He was charged with attempted murder. Two years in prison, he got out and he didn’t have family to turn to and started living on the streets.
I was praying “you are not an orphan, you are a son of God”. He said he became so close to Jesus on the streets. He says that people who everything have nothing without Jesus. I agreed with him.
I said you are called to be a preacher. He said, I know. I’ve been running away.
Then I told him my testimony of being called. Not with a specific church, not ordained, have no seminary background. But I do His work everyday, praying for those that need it.
We talked a lot while sitting on the ground, under the sun. I’m pretty sure many passerbys were staring, but we were flowing.
He said he had a brother in Cape Town. I said God wants you to reach out to him. I said “you don’t realize this but when you ask people for help, when they help you God actually blesses them. So in actuality you are actually helping them break out of the spirit of fear and lack”.
Then I prayed for a lady in a chinese restaurant who was very worried about his son not succeeding in math class. He is 9 years old, in a cram school. I said, your child is God’s. He will take care of him. It’s not your responsibility to worry, let go and surrender this to God.
