God’s Promises to Me!

Manna For Today: Friday, January 18, 2019

Isaiah 41:10“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

Meditate today on God’s marvelous promises to you in this text. Walk in all He makes available to you!

• I have no reason to fear for God is with me.

• I will not be dismayed for He is my God.

• He will strengthen me.

• He will help me.

• He will uphold me with His mighty hand.

The only thing left to do is to thank Him!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

My God Is My Refuge!

Manna For Today: Thursday, January 17, 2019

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.

As my refuge, God is:

• My comfort – I find great solace in Him.

• My relief – He lifts my burdens.

• My help – Nothing is too big or small for Him.

• My hope – My mind is set at peace knowing that God is working on my behalf.

Lord, you are the strength of my life. I can face any trouble with you!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

My God Is My Keeper!

Manna For Today: Wednesday, January 16, 2019

Among the many things we learn about our God is that He is a keeping God. God does and will keep you!

Sometimes our circumstances can seem to challenge this idea but the Bible says, “Let God be true and every human a liar.” [Romans 3:4]

No matter who is speaking in tension with the Word of your God, choose to believe your God and not people.

Note how God keeps us:

1. We are kept in the Father’s name.

John 17:11Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.

2. We are kept in safety.

John 17:12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

3. We are kept in joyfulness.

John 17:13But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

4. We are kept in purity.

John 17:15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

Dear friend, we are kept by an unfailing God. It is no coincidence that the Word of God says, “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world.” [I John 4:4]

Let us meditate on the keeping graces of our King and rejoice today in His loving kindness toward us.

Be kept by your God today! Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Find A Way To Rejoice

Manna For Today: Tuesday, January 15, 2019

Romans 5:3-4We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation.

The way we think about what’s happening in our lives determines our mobility. Mobility is critical to bringing to resolution the issues of our lives. But in our moment of intense difficulty God stacks the deck in our favor in that even when we suffer, He exacts a redemptive blessing out of what is painful in our lives.

So, my friend, no matter what you are going through right now, I encourage you to find your way to an opportunity to rejoice. As the song we sing says, “Hallelujah anyhow, never, never let your troubles get you down.” Lift your hands and your heart to heaven and bless that wonderful name of Jesus. You are not getting worse in God’s economy, you are getting better.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

My Body, God’s Temple!

Manna For Today: Monday, January 14, 2019

Because my body is the dwelling place of God, my motivation for caring for it has gone to another level.

III John 1:2 [Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well], takes on a new meaning for me. God wants me to do things so that I can be in good health.

There are things I can do but are not in my best interest according to I Corinthians 6:12 [“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything] and, as it states, I refuse to be under the power of anything other than the Spirit of God.

According to I Corinthians 6:14 [By His power God raised the Lord from the dead, and He will raise us also], my body is so important to God that when I die He is going to resurrect it to be with Him in heaven for eternity.

My body belongs to God and I am leasing it for my stay here on the earth. God wants me to be a good steward of my body. God has chosen to live in my body according to I Corinthians 6:19 [Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own] and I must practice awareness of His presence to the end I am mindful of what I do with my body.

I will no longer vandalize my body with junk that destroys it. Jesus has honored me with His body and I will honor Him with my body; I will worship God with my body.

I am deciding right now to daily desire and do the things that make me well physically.

Father, thank You for being interested in every detail of my life. Please help me to continue making Your Dwelling Place [my body] one that You can use for every purpose You have for me. I am committed to a journey of health and wellbeing in You. Thank You for being my Guide.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Persevering Under Trial

Manna For Today: Sunday, January 13, 2019

There is probably no more significant quality to growing your faith than perseverance. God enables us to persevere no matter what happens. Every obstacle becomes a classroom for the believer to move the needle of growth toward greater experiences of victory in Christ.

Consider the following scriptures that aid us in our classroom during times of overcoming obstacles, difficulties, trials and tribulations:

1. Christ enables our steady pace as we walk in Him.

Romans 12:12Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

2. Perseverance is a divine privilege given to those who dare to believe!

Colossians 1:11-12We also pray that you will be strengthened with all his glorious power so you will have all the endurance and patience you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father. He has enabled you to share in the inheritance that belongs to his people, who live in the light.

3. Timing isn’t everything but the right time is.

Galatians 6:9So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.

4. Develop a clear vision of your reward so that in your most difficult times it becomes your motivation to persevere.

James 1:12God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.

5. Resist weariness with every fiber of your being when it protests against doing good.

II Thessalonians 3:13As for the rest of you, dear brothers and sisters, never get tired of doing good.

My friend, find a way to move forward every day of your life. If you are willing to take the pull God will get you through.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Live Your Now!

Manna For Today: Saturday, January 12, 2019

Matthew 6:34So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.

The only time we really have is that second we call NOW! What we do with that is in our control. Choose to be present with God in the moments of your life. That’s where real living begins. We can’t live a life of the past or future but we can live NOW!

Allow God to free you from concerns that rob you of your life by casting them all on Him. Get free and live your NOW!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
