Trusting Our God…

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 that 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.

Reminder, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Allow God To Live Big In You!

 Weapons are critical to success in warfare. Our weapons include the following_ 1. The Name of Jesus 2. The Word of God 3. Our pra

Hebrews 4:12For the Word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

The opening statement in the text can cause us to assess the level at which God’s Word is living and active in our own lives. Its efficacy is without question; there is nothing that can be hidden from it and no thinking or core position that can manipulate it.

The only thing that can stop the work of God’s Word in you is you!

It may be a great idea for you to ask God to, by His Word, reveal to you any thought or intent of your heart that may be in tension with His Plan and Purpose for you. Ask also for courage to accept His critique and wisdom to make the needed corrections.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Live In God’s Peace Today!

Manna For Today: Thursday, February 8, 2018

You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.2

My friend, no matter what your struggle is today, no matter your circumstances or feelings or loss, there is a place we can go in our wonderful God that transcends life’s highs and lows.

The Bible says in Philippians 4:6-7, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Take authority over worry, replace anxiety with prayer, talk to God like the loving Father His is, thank Him for the ways in which He has blessed you and experience His sweet peace afresh. Allow the power of His peace to protect and keep you!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Do Not Fear…

Manna For Today: Wednesday, February 7, 2018

My friend, be encouraged today; God is mindful of you and He is working things out on your behalf right now.2

II Timothy 1:7For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

Any fear the believer holds onto is needless fear. Instead invest yourself in God’s love, His power and the spiritual disciplines that reveal to us His Plan and Purpose with great clarity.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God Has A Plan For You!

Manna For Today: Tuesday, February 6, 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.

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 13:8Jesus 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.”

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!

Hear and Obey!

Manna For Today: Monday, February 5, 2018

Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

I Corinthians 16:13Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.

The Spirit of God informs us as to what we are to be and do in this brief scripture. Note the following are not suggestions but commands:

1. “Be on guard”

• Be watchful and alert to God’s revelations and insights. Be mindful of threatening dangers and avoid drowsiness that de-energizes your faith. Reject anxiety and fear!

2. “Stand firm in the faith”

• Be stationary, fixed and persevere as you rest in your God, staying connected to Him and finding life in Him; and be fully persuaded and confident in the truth that is the Gospel of our Lord!

3. “Be courageous”

• Move forward with maturity and the confidence of your conviction.

4. “Be strong”

• Be empowered, strengthened and strong so that your vitality in God is evident to all.

Today, allow the Spirit of God to lead you in embracing these commands for His purpose and be blessed!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
