Hidden Treasures
By Joel Osteen - Jun 30, 2010
I know this couple who recently discovered that they have valuable minerals on their property. Not only is there a company that is paying them to drill, but the couple is keeping 90% of the profits. I mean, it's like they won the lottery. And what's so interesting is that the same company surveyed their land about ten years ago, but there was no sign of any oil before that couple moved in. One of the geologists said he had a desire to go back and check the land again, and this time there was a slight indication that there might be oil on their property. The couple gave them the rights to drill, and sure enough, they struck oil. It looks like there is no end in sight. Well, what was it that caused that oil to all of the sudden show up once that young couple moved in? What was it that caused the geologist to want to go back and survey the property? That was Almighty God uncovering the hidden riches found in secret places.

I believe God has hidden treasures for every one of His children. You may not strike oil, but you don't know what you may be sitting on. You don't know where God is leading you. God can give you one idea that can lead to supernatural provision above and beyond what you could ever imagine. He can cause you to be at the right place at the right time. He can give you the right connections, and He can bring talent out of you that you didn't even know you had. The key is to stay faithful and stay obedient to His Word. Keep sowing good seed and don't let bitterness, strife, or envy creep in. Keep your heart open and keep trusting Him because He will show you the hidden treasures He has for you!

The blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and He adds no sorrow with it (Proverbs 10:22, NLT).
