Boris Grisenko: What does my heart cherish these days?

When I woke up yesterday, I picked up my phone, opened the MyBible app and, to my surprise, saw the plain text of Luke 12. And there were famous words:

“And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. “Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” (Luke 12:29-34).

This is an amazing, practical, lively and specific recommendation! But when I read the words, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also,” I thought: Where is my heart? What does my heart perceive as a treasure? What is in my heart right now? What comforts it? What is it afraid of losing? Frankly, I didn’t really want to analyze it. But the Holy Spirit pushed me in this direction, and some moments were not joyful for me.

By where our heart is, we can understand what is a real treasure for us, a value. You just have to let the Lord show it without prejudice and as it is. And I noticed that He only shows us what we can perceive, what we need to see and lift up today. And this means that we have enough strength, power, understanding and holy desire within us to cope with this.

And in the course of this mini-analysis, I thought how favorable these dire circumstances are for my sanctification and understanding where my heart is! Of course, I hated to think about it. But sometimes, and especially in such difficult times, it makes sense to allow a loving Father, a loving Yeshua, and a loving Ruach to show us what holds us back from His love.
