You Are Safe In Your God!

Manna For Today: Thursday, April 18, 2019

Dear friend, no matter what you are going through right now, God can and will protect you.

Meditate on the following verses and be encouraged today.

Isaiah 54:17“No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is from Me,” says the LORD.

I Samuel 2:9He will guard the feet of His saints, but the wicked shall be silent in darkness. For by strength no man shall prevail.

Hebrews 13:6So we may boldly say: “The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

Proverbs 2:7-10He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; He guards the paths of justice, and preserves the way of His saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice, equity and every good path. When wisdom enters your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul.

Psalm 16:8-9I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope.

I am safe in Him because I’m protected by Him.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

You Are God’s Choice!

Manna For Today: Wednesday, April 17, 2019

Very early in life we learn the sting of being alienated. It happens as children decide they no longer want to play with us or as we get older we may not be selected to be a part of something our peers are engaged in; sports, cheerleading, various groups and activities.

Some people, as adults, still suffer from wounds received in childhood related to others overlooking them as their choice. It doesn’t stop when we become adults; we are rejected in many ways and we can allow that rejection to shape our lives and livelihood.

In the midst of all this potential rejection rises SOMEONE who chooses you when He has not been your choice.

John 15:16 says (Jesus speaking), “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”

Friend, if no one else in life ever chooses you, if you are a believer, you have been chosen by Jesus Christ, Himself. I don’t know about you but for me, it just doesn’t get any better than that.

I begin to understand David’s question, “What is man that you are mindful of him?” A loose translation would be, “Why do you have any interest in me at all?”

Not only has Christ made us His specific choice but He has also appointed us to the ministry of productivity and that with sustainability. If that is not enough, He then invites us to ask the Father for whatever we need in His name and assures us that the Heavenly Father will give it to us based on our use of His name.

What a privilege and opportunity being His choice has afforded us!

My friend, think on these things today. You are God’s choice and nothing and no one can ever change that. Say it with me now, “GOD CHOSE ME!”

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Quiet Yourself Today…

Manna For Today: Tuesday, April 16, 2019

Philippians 1:6Being confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

This scripture reminds us that the “good work” being done in our lives was started by God, will be continued by God and will be finished by Him. It is God all the way, from beginning to end; growing, developing and enabling us.

Quiet yourself today and ask God to show the work going on in you now and how you can partner with Him in it.

When you discover God’s work and your opportunity for partnership, share it with someone.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Be Strong And Courageous!

Manna For Today: Monday, April 15, 2019

Joshua 1:9This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.

What a great benefit to live life in the assurance of God’s presence, power and provision!

Today, hear God calling you once again (He never gets tired) to a place of courage and strength; be strong and have courage. You can do it because He said you can!

Command fear and discouragement to leave and invite the peace of God in.

Today, know that wherever you go your awesome God is with you!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

You Will Win!

Manna For Today: Sunday, April 14, 2019

Proverbs 3:5, 9Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 9 Honor the LORD with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce.

You simply will not do what verse 9 says if you neglect to manage the relationship between your trust of God and dependence on you. Self will always war with faith; the only way self wins is for you to choose your logic over God’s leading.

Practice today being led by God as opposed to being led by your logic. Know that “you can win.” It will require you to decrease so that He can increase. If you are challenged in hearing God it may be the result of your listening to other entities.

God will not compete with the noise of our lives. He is waiting patiently for you to attend to Him. You will always move in the direction of your most dominant thought; make that God!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God Will Sustain You!

Manna For Today: Saturday, April 13, 2019

Psalm 3:5I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the LORD sustained me.

Lack of trust is a major gap in our devotion to and relationship with God. Begin today by writing down the areas in your life you struggle to give God completely. You wont surprise, embarrass or anger Him; He appreciates our honesty and can’t help us until we are.

Go to Him today asking for His intervention to close the gap and when He has done that, you simply praise and thank Him for his loving kindness. Share your discoveries with someone who will be blessed by them.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God’s Goodness…

Manna For Today: Friday, April 12, 2019

Deuteronomy 31:6Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.

The goodness of God cannot be measured, His mercy and grace have no boundary.

He encourages us to become what He enables us to be; ‘strong and courageous.’

He gives us a sense of freedom and well-being no matter who they are who threaten us; ‘do not be afraid or terrified because of them.’

He’s there with us when we need Him; ‘for the Lord your God goes with you.’

He doubles down on His commitment to us; ‘He will never leave you nor forsake you.’

How wonderful is our God!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
