Today's Promise

Our Treasuries Filled

Today's Promise - May 29

Dr. Bill Bright


"My paths are those of justice and right. Those who love and follow Me are indeed wealthy. I fill their treasuries" (Proverbs 8:20,21).

"How does it feel to be a millionaire?" someone once asked the maker of Pullman cars, George M. Pullman.

"I have never thought of that before," replied Pullman, "but now that you mention it, I believe I am no better off - certainly not happier, than when I did not have a dollar to my name and had to work from daylight to dark.

"I wore a good suit of clothes then, and I only wear one suit at a time now. I relished three meals a day then a good deal more than I do three meals a day now. I had fewer cares, I slept better and may add that I believe I was generally far happier in those days than I have been many times since I became a millionaire."

As Pullman learned, true wealth is not found in earthly riches. The heart can never be fully satisfied with anything of the world; beside, the world passes away. True wealth is found in the knowledge of Christ and of His great salvation, and in the possession of the abiding riches which He bestows on all who believe in Him.

True wealth has to do with spiritual health - inner peace, clear conscience and sins forgiven. That man, woman or young person with abiding faith in Christ, who is yielded to the control of God's indwelling Holy Spirit, has true wealth - the supernatural life.



22 “The Lord brought me forth as the first of his works,
    before his deeds of old;
23 I was formed long ages ago,
    at the very beginning, when the world came to be.
24 When there were no watery depths, I was given birth,
    when there were no springs overflowing with water;
25 before the mountains were settled in place,
    before the hills, I was given birth,
26 before he made the world or its fields
    or any of the dust of the earth.
27 I was there when he set the heavens in place,
    when he marked out the horizon on the face of the deep,
28 when he established the clouds above
    and fixed securely the fountains of the deep,
29 when he gave the sea its boundary
    so the waters would not overstep his command,
and when he marked out the foundations of the earth.
30     Then I was constantly at his side.
I was filled with delight day after day,
    rejoicing always in his presence,
31 rejoicing in his whole world
    and delighting in mankind.


Today's Action Point

I'll begin to look more to the "Bank of Heaven" for my true wealth.
