I thought that something was wrong but I couldn’t put my finger on it…it was like I was ‘off balance’ and I couldn’t quite work it out.
Then I realised…it was my wallet.
Once again it had done what it does so well and had accumulated dozens of receipts, hand written notes and even a couple of flyers which seemed important at the time – the only thing that doesn’t seem to stay in my wallet is money!
So, it was time to clear out the ever increasing pile of stuff and it was just as well that I did.
Hidden amongst the credit card receipts, the ‘shopper dockets’ and the 2 for 1 deal at the drycleaners was a long forgotten gift certificate!
A gift certificate is a great gift; it gives you an opportunity to buy something that you want, at a store you want, at a time you want. The only problem is you have to redeem the certificate before it runs out. Thankfully my gift certificate had a couple of months left but it would have been a waste if I hadn’t got around to clearing out my wallet!
The Word of God (The Bible) is just like a gift certificate. It is full of value, potential and powerful promises for anyone who opens it and claims them for themselves.
There is no ‘valid to’ date on the Bible but many people go through their whole lives failing to claim what is rightfully their’s. Make sure you don’t miss out on everything the Lord has planned for you!
