Who Can Stand Against The Lord?

Manna For Today: Monday, December 5, 2016

who-can-stand-against-the-lord

Job 38:8-11“…Or who shut in the sea with doors, when it burst forth and issued from the womb; when I made the clouds its garment, and thick darkness its swaddling band; when I fixed My limit for it, and set bars and doors; when I said, ‘this far you may come, but no farther, and here your proud waves must stop!’”

I don’t know what you are going through right now or what lie the enemy is trying to get you to buy into. What I do know is that no one can stand against the Lord; no challenge you may be facing, no diagnosis you may have gotten, no failure you have experienced or mistake you may have made or loss you may have experienced, nothing can and nothing will stand against our King.

Position yourself with God’s power and authority surrounding you. You don’t have to get the victory because Christ already has it and you have it in Him. Meditate on and rest in the Truth. You are victorious right now in Him, no matter what the situation. Just believe!

Peace and blessings!

The Secret To Fruitfulness!

Manna For Today: Sunday, December 4, 2016

the-secret-to-fruitfulness

John 15:5[Jesus speaking] “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”

We spend a lot of time discovering who we are and not enough time on who we are not. They are both equally important and connect to our success, particularly as they relate to our ‘in-Christ-ness.’

The text could not be more clear “He who abides in Me and I in him…” The only thing we need to know is, “Are we abiding?” If we are, we are automatically in the family of “whoever” that “bears much fruit.”

Practice remaining in Him in every detail of your life. If you call Him and are unable to hear, it’s because you’ve gone too far. Stop, go back and continue calling Him until you can hear His voice. Stay there and don’t leave without Him.

Peace and blessings!

Take Cover In Him!

Psalm 91:4He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

Life is such that we often feel exposed. The stuff of life has a way of agitating its debris, sometimes to the point of obscuring our view. In every direction we see evidence of life’s challenges and it seems there is no end.

Take cover my friend, you have a refuge in your God. There you will find comfort, relief, help and hope. Take cover, find rest in the sweet repose He gives you!

Peace and blessings!

Christ’s Provision, Your Blessing!

Manna For Today: Friday, December 2, 2016

christs-provision-your-blessing

Meditate today on what Christ has done for you!

1. The debt He paid.

Romans 5:8But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

2. The sacrifice He made.

John 15:13-14Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you.

3. The table He laid.

I Corinthians 11:23-26For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: that the Lord Jesus on the same night in which He was betrayed took bread; and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” In the same manner He also took the cup after supper, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in My blood. This do, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.”

Think on these things and be eternally grateful.

Peace and blessings!

Sailing The Waves Of Life!

Manna For Today: Thursday, December 1, 2016

sailing-the-waves-of-life-final

Life is filled with ebb and flow, where they start we seldom know.
Spirit only sees its frequent bend and knows the mystery of its end.
Like watching log in fire burning, what seem consistent is constantly turning.

From young to old, we can’t say when;
from start to finish and then again
there’s only one who’s ever the same,
King of kings, Lord of lords, is His name.

His love and kindness shine eternally bright, all around Him reflect His light.

Shine today, my friend, lean into life’s bend, fill your sail, with His victorious wind. Sail on and on, sail faster and free.

He’ll amaze you, where He takes you, on bended knee!

Revelation 19:16On his robe at his thigh was written this title: King of all kings and Lord of all lords.

Peace and blessings!

Satiating Praise

Manna For Today: Wednesday, November 30, 2016

satiating-praise

Psalm 107:8-9Let them praise the LORD for His great love and for the wonderful things He has done for them. For He satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.

The churches of the world are their stadiums and auditoriums that they fill weekly with millions of people who praise, with great enthusiasm, individuals who entertain them for a few moments then leave them thirsty, hungry and unsatisfied. Can we then, as believers, sit in our bodies, which are the temples of God, and fail to praise and thank God who:

• Loved us when we were unlovable

• Died for us and redeemed us when we were guilty

• Heals us from diseases

• Calms us in the midst of our storms

• Quenches our thirst

• Satiates our appetite

• Establishes us in the production of the beautiful fruit of His Spirit

Psalm 34:1“I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”

Peace and blessings!

Allow God To Complete His Work In You!

Manna For Today: Tuesday, November 29, 2016

allow-god-to-complete-his-work-in-you

Among the many things I love about God is His ability to use every detail of my life in fulfillment of His Plan. You see, in the mind of the architect, the difficult parts have purpose too!

Every day of our lives begins with the favor of our Heavenly Father. When things happen in our lives that may be wonderful to us but generate negative response from others, it doesn’t mean that we are off point.

Some of the trouble we are going through are a necessary part of God’s Plan. Sometimes, down is going to be the way up for us; your failures and stumbles are as much a part of your development and growth as your successes. Sometimes they are more important than your successes.

I Peter 2:5 says, “And you are living stones that God is building into his spiritual temple. What’s more, you are his holy priests. Through the mediation of Jesus Christ, you offer spiritual sacrifices that please God.”

Friend, we must remind ourselves daily that no matter what it is, no matter how it feels, no matter how difficult the task, God is with us right now and always. When we allow God into the challenges of life, the result will be favor, success and prosperity. God will not waste one detail of our lives but will use them all for His Plan and our good.

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.”

Romans 8:28And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.

It’s not that God causes it but I’m sure glad that He uses it. You can do the same thing, my friend; get determined right now to get blessed in your mess. Thank God we don’t have to be in a perfect situation to be blessed.

Today, reconnect with God in a new way and be mindful that He is at work in your life right now.

Peace and blessings!
