Israel Trip - Part 2

On my trip to Israel, we also visited Petra in Jordan.  This picture was taken in front of what is called the King’s Treasury.  You can see how huge it is in comparison to the camel standing out front.  This is the first sight one sees coming through the tunnel called The Eye of the Needle.  I remember being so tired from riding on horseback, then walking on a long, long path to reach this destination.  The sight of this building through the dark rock totally energized me.  What an amazing sight to see after such a long trek.  

Carved out of the red sandstone of the surrounding mountains, the beautiful building is only a facade.  As we walked through the door, we saw only one large, empty room, which is where the king's treasure was stored long ago.

The idea of a king's treasury impacted me and  I keep this photo near my desk as a reminder of my Heavenly Father's great wealth.  Unlike this king whose storehouse was a single room, the Scriptures say:
For every beast of the field is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10)
"He will supply all your needs from his riches in glory, by Yeshua Hamashiach." (Philippians 4:19)

When I made aliyah, I was fearful about finances most of the time.  Since then, G-d has developed in me a complete trust about money.  He has proved over and over again His faithfulness to provide every need.  This picture is a visual reminder that His provision is tremendously greater than any king.

  3. Oh, how I would love to visit Israel and I would love to go to Petra. I believe Petra will be a key location during the tribulation. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, Ps 122:6
