Lift Up Your Soul To Your God!

Manna For Today: Saturday, February 16, 2019

Psalm 25:1-5LORD, I give myself to you; my God, I trust you. Do not let me be disgraced; do not let my enemies laugh at me. No one who trusts you will be disgraced, but those who sin without excuse will be disgraced. LORD, tell me your ways. Show me how to live. Guide me in your truth, and teach me, my God, my Savior. I trust you all day long.

Today, lift up your soul to your God, trust Him to come to your aid, ask Him to show you His way, to teach you His path and to enable you to walk in His truth! Wait patiently all day today on Him!

Ask God to show you someone who would be encouraged by this word and share it with them today!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Our God Keeps Us…

Manna For Today: Friday, February 15, 2019

Among the many things we learn about our God is that He is a keeping God. God does and will keep you!

Sometimes our circumstances can seem to challenge this idea but the Bible says, “Let God be true and every human a liar [Romans 3:4].”

No matter who is speaking in tension with the Word of your God, choose to believe your God and not people.

Note how God keeps us:

1. We are kept in the Father’s name.

John 17:11Now I am no longer in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to You. Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.

2. We are kept in safety.

John 17:12While I was with them in the world, I kept them in your name. Those whom You gave Me I have kept; and none of them is lost except the son of perdition, that the Scripture might be fulfilled.

3. We are kept in joyfulness.

John 17:13But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

4. We are kept in purity.

John 17:15I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

Dear friend, we are kept by an unfailing God. It is no coincidence that the Word of God says, “Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world [I John 4:4].”

Let us meditate on the keeping graces of our King and rejoice today in His loving kindness toward us.

Be kept by your God today! Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Go Forward In God Daily!

Manna For Today: Thursday, February 14, 2019

II Corinthians 4:7-9But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. We 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…

I’m so glad that God chose to put the precious gift of the Spirit in our frail jars. It serves as a constant reminder of who He is and who we are not. The power is His and the victory is His, yet in ‘His-God-Like’ way, He uses those tools to enable us.

When we are afflicted in so many ways, crushed by life’s circumstances, confused, threatened by despair, wrongly mistreated or even struck down, in us is a superior response of God that pushes back to the end that, what should have or could have taken us out is unable to and we rise!

Tap into God’s glory today, my friend. Rise above whatever may be confronting you, speak those words inspired by none other than Him, “I will rise,” then do it. Get up, stand up and go forward in Him.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Our God Doesn’t Change…

Manna For Today: Wednesday, February 13, 2019

Our trust in our God related to every detail of our lives is not wasted; not because of what we see or have as outcome or result but because:

1. Our God is great, faithful, just and upright.

Deuteronomy 32:4He is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He.

2. Our God does what He says.

Numbers 23:19God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

3. Our God is our solid rock foundation.

Psalm 18:2The LORD is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

4. Our God does not change; what He is today, He will be tomorrow.

James 1:17Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.

You really can trust our Heavenly Father. What have you held back that you need to give Him now?

Meditate on these scriptures that speak to His nature and character and take that secret thing to Him today!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

These Blessings Are For You…

Manna For Today: Monday, February 11, 2019

I Chronicles 4:10And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.

• “ …that You would bless me indeed”

• “…enlarge my territory”

• …that Your hand would be with me”

• “…that You would keep me from evil”

• “…that I may not cause pain!”

Pray these daily and expect God to move in your life!

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!

Trusting Our God…

Manna For Today: Sunday, February 10, 2019

Psalm 3:5 I 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.

Remember, you are loved!

Peace and blessings!
