On the day that I make them My jewels

4:32 p.m. Today's project is to dwell on the fact that God is so tender and loving toward those who love Him, because, as 2 Timothy 2:19 says, "The Lord knows those who are His."

In yesterday's post, we looked at scriptures concerning gold, silver, and precious jewels, and how the highest of human qualities, wisdom, is even more valuable to Him. Proverbs 31:10(NLT) says that "a virtuous and capable wife is more precious than rubies." Proverbs 3:14-15 says of wisdom, "Her proceeds are better than the profits of silver, and her gain tham fine gold. She is more precious than rubies; and all things you may desire cannot compare with her."

So if we would value what God values, pray for wisdom for both immediate choices and upcoming decisions. The seeker of wisdom is assured by James 1:5 that God "gives (wisdom) to all liberally and without reproach..."

Did you know that God considers us His jewels? Listen to this passage in Malachi 3:16-17 about God's Book of Remembrance:

Then those who feared the LORD spoke to one another, and the LORD listened and heard them; so a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear the LORD and who meditate on His name.Align Left
Doesn't it humble and amaze you that the Lord is listening in on our fellowship, our speaking of Him to one another, and loves it so much that He keeps a book of remembrance, a scrapbook, if you will?! Verse 17:
"They shall be Mine," says the LORD of hosts, on the day that I make them My jewels. And I will spare them as a man spares his own son who serves him." Then shall you again discern between the righteous and the wicked, between the one who serves God and the one who does not serve Him.
Yet, as we approach Good Friday, the day of Christ's death on the cross, we know that God did not spare His only begotten Son, but gave Him to die for us, for all mankind, to make it possible for sinners to come to Him for forgiveness of sin, freedom from fiery punishment, and full sonship to our Heavenly Father! (Galatians 4:7)
Christians do not belong to an exclusive club! Revelation 22:17b, the last invitation given to come to Christ for eternal life, says, (KJV) "Let him who thirsts come. And whosoever will, let him take of the water of life freely. " Anyone at all, come to Christ, I implore you! Send me a comment and I will pray with you, any time!!
Only Christ can satisfy all that you are thirsting for in this life, and all you need for life everlasting!!
