Don’t Forget…

Manna For Today: Thursday, July 6, 2017

Matthew 8:24Suddenly a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping.

Storms are a part of life; no matter what your station is in life you will find challenges an equal opportunity employer. They will come without warning and they will be varied in type and intensity.

So what do we do? Don’t forget three (3) things when facing a storm. When the waters of your life are troubled:

1. Don’t forget where Christ is.

Joshua 1:9Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

2. Don’t forget what Christ has done.

Deuteronomy 8:18But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

3. Don’t forget who He is.

Matthew 28:18Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”

Revelation 1:8“I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”

John 8:36So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

God’s Sovereignty

Manna For Today: Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Isaiah 46:9-10Remember what happened long ago; acknowledge that I alone am God and that there is no one else like me. 10 From the beginning I predicted the outcome; long ago I foretold what would happen. I said that my plans would never fail, that I would do everything I intended to do.

Not only is your God sovereign but He is in complete control while things may seem to be totally out of control. He has measured the intensity and duration of your challenge to ensure you are able to weather this storm. He is absolutely God and there is no other.

God’s purpose in your life will stand so trust Him with abandonment. Practice awareness of His presence and remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Endless Supply

Manna For Today: Monday, July 3, 2017

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!

Understanding Who God Is…

Manna For Today: Friday, June 30, 2017

Living in the blessings and benefits of God requires us to understand His role and our own role in our lives. Another way of saying this is, understanding who He is must coexist with understanding who I am not. When David says in Psalm 23, “The Lord is my Shepherd,” he lifts up these two ideas.

Note the following implications:

As my Shepherd:

• He is in control; I am not.

• He is Lord and Master; I am not.

• He is the Supplier of all my needs; I am not.

• He is the good, great and chief Shepherd; I am not.

• He is in charge of my care and keeping; I am not.

• He is the Executor of my life and death; I am not.

My care and keeping are corollary to the resources of my Caretaker.

Understanding who I am not enables me to embrace who God is and positions me to live in His blessings and benefits.

Say out loud with the above in mind, “The Lord is my Shepherd.”

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Love Equals Success!

Manna For Today: Thursday, June 29, 2017

I Corinthians 13:8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

So get rid of all the other methods from the past where by you’ve define what success was and exchange them for love because love equals success.

The Bible says, “Love never fails.” So how do I apply that to my everyday falling down and getting up life? Allow God’s love to be your motivation for everything you do; business, family, academic career, job or relationships. Whatever you do, love must be your motivation if you want to succeed.

Why is that? Because God is love and if God is foundational to your hopes, dreams and aspirations, get ready to experience success.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Live Today!

Manna For Today: Wednesday, June 28, 2017

Ecclesiastes 3:12So I realized that all we can do is be happy and do the best we can while we are still alive.

My friend, all we have is right now so, why waste the moment to unimportant distraction that at the end of the day are meaningless? Reserve your right to be happy and everyday do your best; you can’t do more than that.

This scripture says that’s what God wants you to do. Trade in your ‘rat race’ for the race of grace. Start living for God and do your best for Him and when your race is over you will hear Him say, “Well done good and faithful servant.”

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Defeat Fear

Manna For Today: Tuesday, June 27, 2017

Mathew 25:25And I was afraid, and went and hid your talent in the ground. Look, there you have what is yours.

“I was afraid.” Those words whether spoken and acted upon or just acted upon and not spoken are the downward steps that end in debilitating fear. All I had to do,” are words that reflect the realization that what we fear, what was intimidating us, what was slowing or stopping our needed momentum was really no big deal at all.

“Why didn’t I” are words we use to beat ourselves up with after we err and usually serve no good purpose. My friend, fear is a choice you don’t have to make. Hindsight is nearly always perfect and spilled milk serves no good purpose.

So what do you do?

You decide to reject fear and take courage. Pray before you act and then act on the wisdom of God. Clear up your spill, pour yourself another glass and move forward with God’s plan for your life. You might have made a mistake but you are not one. In God’s economy you are of infinite value.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
