Needless Fear

Manna For Today: Monday, June 17, 2019

II Timothy 1:7 For 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!

Reject Anxiety & Fear

Manna For Today: Sunday, June 16, 2019

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!

A Word From God Makes The Difference

Manna For Today: Saturday, June 15, 2019

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!

Endless Supply

Manna For Today: Friday, June 14, 2019

Lamentations 3:22-23Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness.

This text says it all. The only thing left for us to do is to come to Him with hearts filled with gratitude that His mercies are an endless supply.

Today, come close to your Heavenly Father and receive all you need. Find someone else in need and lead them to drink from the sweet waters of His mercies.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

He Is Our Peace!

Manna For Today: Thursday, June 13, 2019

Ephesians 2:14 For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall.

Allow Christ to simply be what He is to you today. He is your peace. Make that your affirmation and be at peace today and every day.

In Him we really do live, move and have our being.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Favor For Life!

Manna For Today: Wednesday, June 12, 2019

Psalm 30:5For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.

His anger may be the result of any number of things including our failure. Thank God it last only for a moment. No matter what triggers His anger, turn to Him, not from Him. The reason we turn to Him is because we are promised a lifetime of His favor.

What a wonderful thought; favor from God cannot be exhausted. We may cry sometimes through the night because we are not exempt from problems but the problems and the tears will not last. They hurt, stress us, tempt us to fear and bring us to our knees but that’s the place when we realize that joy is soon to follow.

After the shock and after-shock there will be joy. Your morning is coming so don’t give up. Keep moving forward remembering His favor is greater than His anger.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Secure In God’s Authority

Manna For Today: Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Matthew 28:18And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.”

We can find great assurance in the authority Christ declares is His in heaven and on earth if we are in fact in Him. In Him our perspectives must change to reflect our new status.

The Bible says in Colossians 3:2-3, “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.”

Our thoughts are on another level and our position is secure. What a blessing to be “hidden with Christ in God.” There is nothing that can get to you that He is not aware of and doesn’t have authority over. So as we face adversity, do so with this thought in mind, ‘my life is secured by His authority in heaven and on earth.’

I am His and He is mine; my comfort, my relief, my help and my hope! Thank you Father for all the ways in which you have secured me.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
