What God Says Matters!

Manner For Today: Saturday, June 17, 2017

II Corinthians 10:18When someone boasts about himself and how well he has done, it doesn’t count for much. But when the Lord commends him, that’s different!

Isn’t it interesting how easily we can slip into self-justification and approval as if they are sustainable? It doesn’t matter what we say or what others say, the only opinion on the planet that matters is what God says. The only thing we accomplish by getting stuck on human’s opinion is wasting time getting to what’s really important.

Practice going to God first and cut out the middle man including you!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

You Have Authority Over Fear!

Manna For Today: Saturday, June 10, 2017

Isaiah 41:10“Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”

What lie has the enemy been using to intimidate you?

Today:

• Know your troubles will not last.

• God is your strength; it’s okay if you are weak.

• He is your help; it doesn’t matter that you’re alone.

• Not sure you can stand? He’ll uphold you!

• Take authority over fear.

Live right now and from now on in this reality. Tell someone you’re doing exactly that!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Reset Your Finish Line

Manna For Today: Wednesday, June 7, 2017

II Timothy 2:15Make every effort to give yourself to God as the kind of person He will approve. Be a worker who is not ashamed and who uses the true teaching in the right way.

The ‘rat race’ is the one that has no end; we run and run for a reward that we can lose sight of; forgetting why we were running in the first place. STOP! Reset your finish line now by focusing on winning God’s approval. He will give rest in a sea of weariness.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

You Are God’s Choice!

Manna For Today: Friday, May 26, 2017

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!

Let Go Of Anxiety!

Manna For Today: Thursday, April 20, 2017

Philippians 4:6Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.

The way we rid ourselves of anxiety is very simple as revealed in this scripture.

Note the following:

1. Be something other than anxious.

• Replace anxiety with peace by the confession of your mouth; don’t try to resist it, just replace it.

2. In every situation practice peace.

• Never allow it audience again!

• Every time it comes replace it, no exception.

3. Prayer is simply talking to God about two things.

• What He is concerned about.

• What you are concerned about.

• Do it all day!

4. Find that for which you are grateful today.

• An attitude of gratitude will take you to wonderful experiences.

5. Tell God what you need and expect to get it.

• He delights in meeting your need!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Become One With God

Manna For Today: Monday, March 27, 2017

Genesis 11:6 – And the LORD said, “Indeed the people are one and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do; now nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from them.”

Unity requires like-thinking; like-thinking always includes cooperation, communication and imagination. What would happen if we set a goal of being one with God? If we would cooperate with Him, communicate with Him and imagine the possibilities available to us that He desires for our lives.

I can tell you what would happen; we’d be the best we could be in every aspect of our lives. Pray right now and ask God to guide you in setting and maintaining a goal of oneness with Him. Enjoy the journey!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Change Your Lens

Manna For Today: Sunday, March 26, 2017

Hebrews 11: 1-3Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it. 2 Faith is the reason we remember great people who lived in the past. 3 It is by faith we understand that the whole world was made by God’s command so what we see was made by something that cannot be seen.

In life we can sometimes seem unable to see the things we hope for. Our marriage may not be where we want it to be; our children may be a challenge; health, finances, career and a host of other things just appear to be out of focus.

So what do we do? We change our lens! When things seem out of focus we change our lens. We look through the lens of faith and there we see things as they really are.

Our faith gives us the ability to see the unseen, to speak what has been unspoken and to possess the unpossessed.

Begin today with a faith focus and bring into view what has not been seen; declare what has not been declared in Jesus’ name.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
