Come And Rest!

Manna For Today: Friday, May 10, 2019

Matthew 11:28-30“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

What a wonderful invitation! When Jesus invites you to come to Him, nothing but good can result from that if we go. So the question becomes, who do we go to when we are exhausted or weighed down with the stuff of our lives?

Take a moment right now to determine where your default is; has it shifted to strategies of your past, convenience or that which pushes you further in the wrong direction? Reset it right now to Christ and accept His invitation to come. Come hurting, weak, struggling, beat down, broken, confused or depressed. If you want rest He is your resource.

Go now, He’s waiting and willing. You may have made mistakes but God will never see you as a mistake!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Faith That Inspires!

Manna For Today: Thursday, May 9, 2019

James 2:17So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.

Omnipresence is a state of being everywhere. Unlike God, we are unable to be everywhere at once but what we can do is go as He leads us through our faith. It is impossible to be a believer and not be compelled to do something for the cause of Christ.

Keep it simple, my friend. You don’t get extra points with God for extra-complicated tasks. During the course of your everyday life with God, listen to Him talk to you about the needs of people around you and how you can be legs to His love for them. Let Him speak to you about elderly people in your neighborhood who would enjoy a visit, a homeless person who would appreciate your attention and resource, giving a ride to someone without transportation or a utility bill to be paid.

If you listen, God is always speaking in ways He can show people He loves them through us. Listen intently then go where He leads you. This is not an event, it’s the way He wants us to live the life He gave us.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Your Victory Is Sure…

Manna For Today: Wednesday, May 8, 2019

II Corinthians 4:8-9We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed…

My friend, this scripture assures us that for every action of the enemy in our lives there is a more powerful reaction of God designed to ensure our victory in every detail of our lives.

Walk in this confidence today; don’t be distracted by what you feel or see, instead, see yourself coming out with praises of thanksgiving.

Philippians 1:6Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Be Strong And Courageous Today!

Manna For Today: Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Joshua 1:9[God speaking] This 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 or strength and be strong and have courage. You can do it because He said you can!

Command fear and discouragement to leave you today 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!

God Is With You Today!

Manna For Today: Monday, May 6, 2019

Isaiah 43:2When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you.

Wake up; God has you!

Genesis 28:15-16“What’s more, I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you.” Then Jacob awoke from his sleep and said, “Surely the Lord is in this place, and I wasn’t even aware of it!”

No need for panic; God will not fail you!

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.

Meditate on these concepts and corresponding scriptures today and know that you are never alone!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Grace To Overcome…

Manna For Today: Sunday, May 5, 2019

I Corinthians 10:13No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

The tests that God allows in our lives are all predetermined for our success. None, according to scripture, is beyond our capacity; all are under His supervisorial purview.

God is not banking on our faithfulness but upon His own. He has already determined what He will and will not allow in your lives and He’s determined your ability to overcome the same.

The ‘icing on the cake’ is that He’s prepares a way out so that you can endure. So you say, you’re stuck where? I don’t think so, ask God!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Just A Prayer Away…

Manna For Today: Saturday, May 4, 2019

Psalm 34:4I prayed to the Lord and He answered me; He freed me from all my fears.

Fear always attempts to convince us that the object of our fear is a reality. We vet most things in our lives as to their authority before we see them hence the statement made about Missouri folks, “show me.”

So how is the enemy able to secure our buy-in to fear? He can’t! You are just a prayer away from breaking free of your fear.

Make this text your memory verse for the week and do what it says to experience new freedom from fear.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
