Manna For Today: Sunday, July 23, 2017
Isaiah 7:14 – Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel (which means ‘Christ with us’).
One of the major fears people struggle with is being alone or not having someone there at critical times. It doesn’t take us long to learn that life is filled with challenges and uncertainty. People, in an attempt to fill that need for support, often turn to superficial means of obtaining the same. We soon discover that sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll are not sustainable means of securing ourselves.
Enter Jesus; the only sustainable resource for the everyday challenges is “Christ with us.” He is our hope of glory! What an ingenious idea to place what we need most where it is most accessible.
Friend, stop your frantic search! You already have what you need for whatever confronts you on any day of your life. Just be still, draw near through His proclamations, embrace His promises and practice aware of His presence.
Remember, you are loved!
Peace and blessings!
