Dedicating Yourself to God!


Manna For Today: Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Romans 12:1And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind He will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship Him.

Dedicating ourselves to God is, according to scripture, our reasonable service. Focus on what God wants us to start with; it’s our bodies. Where we are physically affects every other detail of our lives.

Consider the ways we can worship God with our bodies:

1. You can cleanse your body.

• Detox it physically and spiritually.

• Stop the input of toxic things mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

II Corinthians 7:1Because we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that can defile our body or spirit. And let us work toward complete holiness because we fear God.

2. You can take care of your body.

• Commit to better stewardship of your body.

Ephesians 5:29 – No one hates his own body but feeds and cares for it, just as Christ cares for the church.

3. You can take control of your body.

• Don’t work for it, make it work for you!

I Thessalonians 4:4That each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable.

I Corinthians 9:27I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.

Set a goal in each of these three areas of managing your body and allow God to bless you!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

The Goodness Of Our God!

Manna For Today: Monday, March 19, 2018

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men.2

Psalm 25:1-5O LORD, I give my life to you. 2 I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced, or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat. 3 No one who trusts in you will ever be disgraced, but disgrace comes to those who try to deceive others. 4 Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow. 5 Lead me by your truth and teach me, for you are the God who saves me. All day long I put my hope in you.

This Psalm echoes the sentiment of all hearts who long for God and know the deep dark abyss of trouble. I appreciate that in its instruction to us, it begins with what we should always begin with; that is, giving ourselves to God.

What good purpose does our lives serve if they are not in the hands of God and at His service? Psalm 25:2 reveals another truth; we will not give our lives to God if we do not trust Him.

We have all felt the sting of disgrace and hear the cheers of some at our own peril. Yet Psalm 25:3 suggests that there is a sense in which our trust in our God elevates us above the possibility of disgrace and that the deceitful among us are the ones who will experience the same.

Psalm 25:4-5 shows us how to go forward in treacherous times. I need God to direct my steps to the “right path.” He alone can tell me which decision I should make and what position I should take.

His truth is my leader, therefore, I surrender to it. He is my master instructor and the horn of my salvation. That is all I need in every detail of my life.

Finally, He is the only reason I have an expectation of any good in my life. My constant friend is He; my refuge from what troubles me; my on time God!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God’s Presence In Your Problem

Manna For Today: Sunday, March 18, 2018


There is nothing more important to do every day of our lives, but certainly when we are in a challenge, than practicing the presence of God. His presence cements your security in and success moving through your challenge. We can cultivate an awareness of His presence by daily confessing His promise related to the same.

The following are scriptures for your daily use in developing a “Christ’s presence” consciousness:

Genesis 28:15“Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go, and will bring you back to this land; for I will not leave you until I have done what I have spoken to you.”

Exodus 33:14And He said, “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.”

Deuteronomy 20:1“When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.”

Psalm 16:11You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

My friend, the way you take God’s presence into a battle against a storm is to speak and declare that He, according to His Word, is there! While your storm may not recognize you, it will surely know Him and more importantly responds favorably to Him on your behalf.

Allow His presence to comfort you in your trial!

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.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!


Just One Word From God!

Manna For Today: Saturday, March 17, 2018

Everyone has a “dark night of the soul” season. Those times when challenge is greater than normal it’s difficult to sleep or function. The challenge could be any number of things; divorce, a serious diagnosis, legal challenge, career challenge, emotional challenge or a great loss or disappointment and the list can go on.

These seasons happen to everyone but all that’s needed in the darkest night of your soul is one Word from God!

The Bible says in Psalm 119:89“Forever, O LORD, Your Word is settled in heaven.”

The Bible says in Isaiah 40:8 “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.”

The Bible says in Matthew 24:35“Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

My friend, it’s God’s Word that will make the difference in our challenge; just one Word can change everything!

Today, search the scripture for the Word you need in your context then stand on that Word and expand it with other scriptures that support it.

The Bible says in Hebrews 11:6, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God’s Got You!

Manna For Today: Friday, March 16, 2018

Tap into God_s glory today, my friend. Rise above whatever may be confronting you, speak those words inspired by none other than Him,2

God is with you!

Isaiah 43:2When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.

Wake up; God has you!

Genesis 28:15-16What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.” Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!”

No need for panic; God will not fail you!

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.

Meditate on these three concepts and corresponding scriptures today and know that you are never alone!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Getting Better in God!

Manna For Today: Thursday, March 15, 2018

No matter where you are or what you are facing, know that right now you are under God_s great covering.3

Romans 12:2Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

God wants us to have a new mind or way of thinking which would give us new focus, enabling us to embody our new focus. How easy it is to fall into the faulty thinking pattern of things that won’t help you like, worry, fear, concern about what others think, etc.

In some instances, we will need to re-parent ourselves to unlearn negative thought-patterns we picked up growing up. Not only do we become what we focus on but we also become like those we spend the most time with.

God has, in His infinite wisdom, given us an opportunity to partner with Him in designing our lives. Go to God today and ask for and receive from Him changes you need to make in your relationships and other critical areas of your life. Then ask Him for the courage to make those changes.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Think Carefully

Manna For Today: Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Put your faith to work today!22

Proverbs 23:7For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.

Take a moment today to stop and allow the Spirit of God to talk to you. As He speaks note what His thoughts are and ensure that your thinking is in line with His.

Becoming like Him begins with thinking like He thinks. The more our thoughts reflect His, the more we will reflect Him in every detail of our lives. Check your thought-life today, reboot if you need to and put on the mind of Christ! You can be like Him if you think like Him.

Remember, you are loved by the greatest LOVE EVER!

Peace and blessings!
