Hey Ya'll!
I pray that you had a wonderful weekend and wish you a happy Monday! It's hotter than blue blazes here in Phoenix today...about 110 degrees...and a heat advisory was issued....duh, really!!!  Would someone please remind me why we moved back to Phoenix from the beautiful cool N. Arizona mountains!  Wait a was the Lord who led us to move....Forgive me Lord, it's hot and I have sinned.....I'm really trying to be content in whatever state city (temperature!) I'm in according to Philipians me Jesus!    

Moving on....

a cry of joy or satisfaction 
when one finds or discovers something 

For some reason, I've found myself pondering the word "eureka" allot lately.  It's a word that was often used during the gold rush days and could be heard echoing through mountains and valleys as gold was discovered. "EUREKA!", gold  miners would joyously proclaim as they dug through the  mire and caught the glimmer of gold within their reach!  Their diligent continual digging and persevering spirit was greatly rewarded as they unearthed the treasure their hearts longed for.....they finally found it, eureka!

I'm reminded of the searching and longing I had within my heart many years ago for the One who would lift my burdens and destroy the yokes of bondage in my life.  And oh what a wondrous day it was when I struck Gold and found the Treasure beyond price and want to shout it from the mountain tops.....eureka! My sins were forgiven, I was filled with His Spirit, He abides in me and I in Him and my name is written in the Lambs book of life!  He calls me His own, He gave me His name and I am in right standing with the Father and will spend all eternity with Him! Amazing....eureka!!!!

Apostle Peter tells us in I Peter 1:8 (amp) the following...

Without having seen Him, you love Him;
though you do not even now see Him, 
you believe in Him
exult and thrill with inexpressible 
and glorious triumphant, heavenly joy.

As I read this scripture this morning, once again I was reminded of the word "eureka"!  I discovered Him and His precious promises and even though I've never seen Him, I love Him and believe what He says  and trust in His unfailing love and faithfulness! Thus I thrill with inexpressible and glorious triumphant, heavenly joy at the wonder of it all!.....eureka!

Digging into His word and searching out His precious promises is a passion of my heart!  My Bible, Strongs Concordance, laptop and study aides are always within reach. I guess I'm kinda like a gold prospector...always digging deeper, always praying and trusting the Holy Spirit to let me catch a glimpse of another precious nugget of truth and rejoicing as He reveals His heart to my heart deeper yet!  That's what He loves to do for His precious children ~ share the depths of His heart with us and reveal nuggets of truth  along life's journey to build our faith, strengthen our resolve, encourage our heart and reveal deeper depths of His unwavering love and faithfulness toward us!  The key is to persistently pursue Him and diligently dig deeper into His Word of Truth!  And the rewards of our persistant and diligent pursuit of Him and His Word.....far greater that rubies and pearls, silver and finest gold.....priceless! (Heb 11:6 amp, Prov 8:10-11 amp). 

In closing I wanna share a few of my fav "eureka" declarations based upon scripture nuggets that minister to my heart.  And, if I were a betting gal, I'd bet your heart will be uplifted and you just might be shouting "eureka" right along with me just like the gold miners did when they struck gold and laid claim upon it....

Precious Nuggets of Truth...eureka! 

My heavenly Father has given me a spirit of wisdom and revelation of insight into mysteries and secrets in the deep and intimate knowledge of Himself....eureka!!!!

My spirit has been flooded with understanding so that I can know and comprehend the hope of my calling and the immense riches of this glorious inheritance that has become my own....eureka!!!

He has given me understanding of the exceeding greatness of His power toward me.  And the power that is now residing and working within me is the VERY POWER that God wrought in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His own right hand, far above every principality, every power, every ruler of darkness, all dominion and every name or title that can be given....eureka!!! 

And this same power is not only working in and through me now, but it will continue to work in and through me in the age to come.  He has given me His name and I have received His power of attorney to use His name and greater works shall I do....all to the glory of God!!!...Hallelujah and eureka!!!
(Daniel 2:22,23; I Corinthians 1:30, 2:6-16; Math 13:11,16; I John 2:20,27,5:20; Romans 8:17; IPeter1:3-5; Colossians 1:9-18,26-29; Philippians 2:5-13; John 14:13, 14, 17:20-26; Eph 2:6; Hebrews 2:5-14; Luke 10:19; Mark 16:15-20)

Sweet friends, let's diligently purpose to dig deeper into the treasury of His Word and go for the gold of His heart! And oh what sweet and precious treasures He will faithfully reveal to us....glory hallelujah, eureka, ya'll!!



Blessings and eureka!

Pin It!
