Jesus is the greatest possession because He is an eternal possession. There is no limit to who and what He is for all. His ability and power are unrestricted and go beyond earthly limits. His goodness knows no boundaries and reaches every possible place. His love has no expiry date and his mercy is extended to all creation. The eternal nature of God makes Him the greatest possible possession ever. After you have drawn from the eternal mercy of God for one thousand years you will realise you are about to get started.
Let us therefore look beyond the limited nature of all blessings and possessions so we can focus on the eternal nature of the blessing that Jesus is among us. He will never leave you nor forsake you. He will uphold you for as long as forever. You can count on His grace and love at all times through all things because He is eternal. Earthly things will end and expire. Earthly possessions grow old and get outdated. But Jesus the eternal possession of the saints never grows old. His mercies are brand new every morning. Look beyond those possessions that grow old with rust and use. Look to Jesus who is the same yesterday, today and forevermore.
SCRIPTURE READING: Hebrews 11:8 Urged on by faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed and went forth to a place which he was destined to receive as an inheritance; and he went, although he did not know or trouble his mind about where he was to go.
DEVOTION PRAYER: Heavenly Father, guide my heart to yearn for You as my greatest possession. May I look unto You who is the same yesterday, now and forever.
