Face The Impossible With God!

Manna For Today: Thursday, August 16, 2018

possible

The Bible says in Luke 18:27, “What is impossible for people is possible with God.”

If we believe the Word of God, we must believe then, based on this scripture, it is possible for the believer to walk in the possibility of the impossible. God’s power is manifested when we move beyond our possibilities.

When facing the door of impossibility, we can:

• Refuse to go through and return to that which is familiar.

• Just stand there and do nothing.

• Move forward by the Power, Presence and Purpose of God.

Walking forward is a decision we have to make; no one can make it for us. Sometimes, the beginning can look like the end but God is always there to lead and guide us through our moving-forward decision.

God wants to do something extraordinary in all of our lives and the only thing that can stop that is us. You can stop the move of God in your life but no one else can.

My friend, don’t run from your impossibility. Run to it knowing God’s Provision will be manifested as you move beyond your possibilities!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God Has A Plan For You!

Manna For Today: Wednesday, August 15, 2018

Provision

Among the many things we can count on happening in life is change. Some people fear change; most of us are intimidated by it. Perhaps it’s because change takes control of what we thought we were in control of.

Thank God He has a plan for our lives that provides us with the ability to maintain a favorable expectation of receiving that which is good. What we must do in the face of change is to trust Jesus then respond to change in a way that reflects that trust. If we will do that we are promised that “everything will work for good for those who love and trust God and keep His Word.”

Consider the following observations about God:

1. God is never late and cannot be measured by time.

II Peter 3:9The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent.

2. God is there right now!

Deuteronomy 31:6So be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid and do not panic before them. For the LORD your God will personally go ahead of you. He will neither fail you nor abandon you.

3. God never changes!

James 1:17Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

4. God has already made provision for you.

Isaiah 43:19For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.

5. God has always had a plan for your life.

Jeremiah 29:11“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the LORD. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

6. God is everything we need.

Psalm 18:2The LORD is my rock, my fortress, and my savior; my God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety.

7. God’s peace exceeds our ability to comprehend, yet is there for the asking.

Philippians 4:6-8Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

My friend, allow His Word to encourage your heart today then find a way to go forward in His Plan and Purpose for your life.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Be Still, God Is With You!

Manna For Today: Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Deliver

Psalm 46:10Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

Sometimes the pace of our lives causes us to miss many things of great value; the relationship wanting for love, the child in need of your attention, taking better care of yourself and so forth.

The most important negligence of our lives is breezing by our knowledge of God. The text above gives us great warning; “Be still.” Many good things can come out of periods of silence or stillness. The greatest of these is knowing that your God is God!

David said in this famous Psalm, “The Lord is…” Today, my friend, practice the disciplines of stillness and knowing, to the end that your God’s presence becomes a greater reality in your life.

Your God has and will continue to deliver you!

Today, meditate on Psalm 34: 17-20 [The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, and saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones; not one of them is broken].

God is indeed our refuge (comfort, relief, help and hope).

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Promises Of Our Heavenly Father

Manna For Today: Monday, August 13, 2018

My friend, allow His Word to encourage your heart today then find a way to go forward in His Plan and Purpose for your life.

Our gracious Father has made many promises to His children that place “water in our desert” experiences and “paths” when we find ourselves in the wilderness of life.

Meditate on the following promises made by your Heavenly Father then appropriate them in your life by confessing them as yours today and every day.

1. The comfort of His presence.

Isaiah 43:2When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, nor shall the flame scorch you.

• It’s wonderful to know that He is there always but it’s life-giving to know in the most difficult season of our lives that He is always there.

2. All things work for the believers’ good.

Romans 8:28And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

• How can we know what God will do in our future? By looking back and remembering all He has done in our past.

3. The sufficiency of Divine Grace.

2 Corinthians 12:9And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

• The lesson we learn from the woman caught in the act of adultery is that if Grace is in the room it’s enough; John 8.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Praise Him!

Manna For Today: Sunday, August 12, 2018

praise him

Psalm 9:1I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.

Praise is the activity of a God-engaged heart. It is not an option, it’s an imperative. It is not related to convenience, it is all the time. It doesn’t result from schedule but from inspiration.

If we will still ourselves, the Spirit of God will praise Himself through us; that will not be ego but instructive.

Take a moment right now and get in touch with your God; engage your heart and mind. Praise Him! Tell someone about your great, kind, merciful, generous, gracious, forgiving and bountiful God.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

The Devotion Of Obedience

Manna For Today: Saturday, August 11, 2018

My friend, you may not be where you desire to be yet, but in Christ you don_t have to be stuck where you are.

Psalm 119:2Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole heart!

Our adherence to God’s Word is a direct corollary to our devotion to Him. Don’t condemn yourself or feel like because you made a mistake you are a mistake. Just simply begin again with renewed commitment to not just get it right but to be right by His standards and bring glory to Him with every detail of your life.

Share with someone where you may be struggling in your devotion to God. Ask for help and make yourself accountable.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

The Devotion Of Prayer

Manna For Today: Friday, August 10, 2018

Our God is good, ready and able to forgive and has inexhaustible bowels of mercy.

Jeremiah 29:13And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

Communication is probable the most significant element in any relationship. Our failure to see our connection with God as a relationship could cause us to neglect our communication with Him. Whatever the reason we may have for not praying consistently let’s admit it, quit it and forget it.

Let’s begin to talk to our Father daily with a new devotion; one that is motivated by our desire to just spend time with Him and feed on His Word. Encourage someone to join you in this renewal.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
