TODAY’S MANNA for Saturday April 21, 2018

Are you a conqueror?

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or sword? No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
Romans 8:35-37 New International Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Conquerors! We win!! But, not just conquerors, we are more than conquerors!! When you open up the final book of the Bible, Revelation, and read and study it, that is the message put forth. Christians win because Jesus is The One true Conqueror, and HE has already won for us. No matter how the battle is going for you right now, remember that in the end, we win! That is if you persevere. If you will not give up, you can not lose, Jesus already won for you! Nothing, left me repeat that ‘NOTHING’ can separate us from the Love of God – you can only refuse to accept it!

MY PRAYER…
El Shaddai, God Almighty, Father of more than enough, thank You for securing the ultimate victory for me by raising Jesus from the dead. I know He is coming with victory on the day You have appointed, but I pray that I may live victoriously for You until that day. Jesus told us when we pray: “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” I know that there is victory in heaven, so Father I thank You that Your will be done now, here on earth, in my life. That I AM victorious now through the Blood of Christ.
As Jesus told us to pray, I pray now through Jesus my conquering King, in His Name, the name of Jesus.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Friday, April 20, 2018

Is Jesus proclaiming you before the Father?

If, when we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through His life.
Romans 5:10 New International Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Jesus didn’t just die for my sins, He lives for me. In fact, He is at God’s right hand right now, claiming me as His own (see 1 John 2:1-2). He is telling the Father, “That one, Pastor Duane, he’s mine Dad, I bought him with my Blood!” He is delivering me daily from sin’s dominion through His resurrection. If He was willing to die to save me, what will He withhold from me now that He lives, victorious over death and lives in me? Nothing, all that He had and has He has given freely unto me. Everything Jesus was and is today is also mine in & through Him!

MY PRAYER…
Holy and Righteous Father, I thank You for Jesus, who is at Your side and who knows my heart, my struggles, and the world that I am in. I thank You for Your constant care and protection through all of my difficulties and struggles. I thank You for all of the triumphs I have through Jesus and Your Holy Spirit. Please make Your presence known even more clearly today than ever before as I strive to serve You with wholehearted devotion. In Jesus’ name I pray.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA Thursday, April 19, 2018

Is your life bearing the fruit of a Christian (Christ-like) walk?

Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
Matthew 7:17-20 New King James Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
In this parable Jesus was using a fruit tree as an example of men. He was really talking about those who say they are His, but aren’t bearing the fruit of a Christ-like walk. There are many who claim to be Christians (“Christ-like”), but really they aren’t. They may have accepted Jesus as their savior, but have they really made Him the Lord over their lives? NO. Do they really fellowship with Him and serve Him daily? NO. They are really just punching their religious time clocks on Sunday mornings thinking that’s all it takes to be a Christian and you’re on your way to heaven. If that’s so, then they are in for a big surprise come judgment day, especially if they aren’t walking the talk! It’s one thing to know about Jesus, but it is a totally different thing to actually
KNOW Jesus! To know Jesus you must have a daily if not continual relationship with Him. Those who don’t have a daily relationship with the Father, Son and Holy Ghost don’t know Him, and that’s what being a Christian is all about! Notice what He says will happen to them, they will be cut down and cast into the fire. Could He possibly mean that eternal lake of fire? If you read on in that chapter you’ll see that He says, “Not every one that says to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but (or only) he that does the will of my Father in heaven.” Do you walk the walk or just talk the talk? Your fruit will let us know!

MY PRAYER…
Most Holy Father, thank You for Your mercy and Your grace. Thank You for Your Son and the Blood He shed for me. Praise You Father, for You are worthy of ALL our praise. Father, let Your Holy Spirit fill me fresh each day with Your precious power. That same power that fell on the day of Pentecost. That same power that gave such boldness to Peter and Stephen and the rest of Your early church. Power to bear forth fruit in this earthly life. Power to be able to separate myself from this world and consecrate myself unto You. I thank You Father that You are the same yesterday, today, and forever and that we are still in the same dispensation of mercy and grace and power as the early church was following Pentecost. Thank You Lord for enduing me with power from on high to be a witness unto You and to serve You day by day. In Jesus’ name I pray.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Is God’s divine healing in your life?

And said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”
Exodus 15:26 New King James Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
First let me give you the correct and proper translation of the Hebrew here: “I will allow none of the diseases to be brought on you…” Do you want the blessings of God in your life, do you want God’s divine healing in your life, Do you want God’s very best for you and your family? You need the ‘Wisdom’ of God to understand how His system works. He tells us in His Word how to get it. Trouble is most of us are too busy listening to the things of this earthly world (desires, lusts and earthly greed) to give heed to His voice and His will for us so that we can even know what He wants us to do. We don’t realize that He speaks to us in many different ways. Sometimes through a friend or co-worker, sometimes through His ministers (your pastor – you do have one right?), sometimes through an e-mail, or a phone call, sometimes just by that still small voice in our spirit. Most of you think that still small voice is just our own conscience, WRONG, that is God’s Spirit, His still small voice trying to guide us by speaking to our spirit. Trouble is we very seldom listen, especially when we are so caught up in things that will one day (and very soon) perish instead of laying up treasures and spiritual things in heaven. Al He asks is that you “diligently” (means: constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything:) heed His Word. As for me and my house, we shall serve the Lord!

MY PRAYER…
Father God, I thank You for giving us a choice in this life. We can choose Your way or we can choose the World’s way. You allow us to choose life or to choose death. But You tell us which we should choose. Your way leads to health and all things that pertain to life and Godliness. The World’s way leads to sickness, disease, poverty, lack, death and eternal destruction. I choose life, Lord. I purpose from this day forward Lord to diligently pursue life and Godliness through You and Your Word. Lord increase my strength in these areas through the power of Your Holy Spirit that I may have the power to overcome. Lord I realize that I can of myself do nothing, but that all things are possible through Jesus Christ
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Tuesday April 17, 2018

Does the Word of God abide in you?

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.”
John 15:7-8 New King James Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
E.W. Kenyon once made this observation:
“When the spirit is in perfect fellowship with the Lord, faith is as natural as breathing.”
E.W. Kenyon

If My Words abide in You, Jesus speaking. The BIBLE is the living Word of God. God’s living Word abiding in you is how your spirit will walk in perfect fellowship with God and your faith will become as natural as your breathing. When you are walking in perfect fellowship with God you will know that you know that you know that you know that you know, that whatever you ask will be given you. The Bible is our manual for life, given to us by God to direct our lives while we live out this earthly existence in this fleshly shell, this earth suit, this house we call a body. We are spirit and we only live in this body for a short time, and we have a soul (our intellect). When we walk according to His Word and we listen to the ‘still small voice’ as God whispers to us, we will bear much fruit.
I like Acronyms.

B…asic
I…nstructions
B…efore
L…eaving
E…arth

MY PRAYER…
Abba Father, Most Holy God, thank You for Your Word. Help instill in me a genuine desire in my heart for more of You and Your Word. Father, put a fire in my belly that can’t be quenched. Cause Your Word to come alive inside of me as I feed on it. Send forth Your revelation knowledge and wisdom as I meditate Your Words that were written to me and are being written in me. In Jesus’ name I pray.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Monday, April 16, 2018

Do You Trust in the Lord with all your heart?

Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
Proverbs 29:25 New International Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
What man should we fear? No man! Fear is such a paralyzing emotion. It robs us of courage and vitality, it removes our decision-making ability, and our strength. It causes us to do things we know we shouldn’t do and that we always regret afterwards. Fear is the opposite of faith and it steals our happiness and joy. Courage helps us step out of fear’s paralysis and into victory. But this kind of courage only comes to us when we fully understand our position in Christ. If we are in faith and trusting God there can be no room for fear in our lives. Satan cannot take our mind, our attitude, and most of all, he cannot take our relationship with God unless we let him do so. A relationship given to us through Jesus, as long as we trust in the Lord our God and stay in faith. Perfect love casts out all fear. And there is NO room for fear when your spirit is full of ‘Faith’, faith in God and what He is and can do!

MY PRAYER…
Mighty Redeemer, thank You for triumphing over all that I would in the natural man fear. Thank you that You have not only given me Jesus in whom I trust, but a hope by which I can live victoriously. Thank You that you have not given me a spirit of fear, but of love, power, and a sound mind through my Conquering King and Lord, Jesus. In the mighty name of Jesus, I thank you.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Sunday April 15, 2018

The Lord our God loads His children daily with benefits!

Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation!
Selah
Psalm 68:19 New King James Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Did you comprehend what He (God) just said in His scripture to us? That the Lord our God will load us daily with His benefits, He didn’t say sickness, disease, depression, and poverty. And He didn’t say just some, He said He would ‘load’ us, that means a lot! He has even provided us with salvation. The Hebrew word translated as salvation here is; H3444. yeshuw’ah, yesh-oo’-aw; fem. pass. part. of H3467; something saved, i.e. (abstr.) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity:–deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.
Notice that among the many things that the translator could have used and should have used are victory, prosperity, deliverance, health, and welfare or well being. All of these are part of our salvation. Don’t just reach into the gift box and take out one thing, take it ALL! I feel sorry for those people whose churches do NOT teach the ‘full meal deal’ concerning salvation! Being saved and having eternal life means nothing here and now unless you also have victory, prosperity, deliverance, health, and well being. These are ALL some of God’s benefits that He already gave us! You do NOT have to wait until you are in Heaven for these things. What good are they to you then? The Bible says: “Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10) All of these are part of our salvation. There is NO sickness and disease in Heaven. There is NO lack in Heaven. There is NO defeat in Heaven. That means we shouldn’t have any here and now either if Matthew 6:10 is true, and God’s Word is always true! He did this for me before I ever loved Him! He loads us daily with His benefits. “Blessed be the Lord, my God!”

MY PRAYER…
Holy Father God, thank You for the air I breath, the blood that pumps through my veins, and the Spirit of life that You have breathed into me. Thank You Father for loving me before I ever loved You. For loving me so much that You sent Jesus, Your only begotten Son, to take my place on the cross. To bear that which I was due, that I might have life and life more abundantly. Thank You for loading me daily with benefits and good things. Thank You Lord, that You are the God of more than enough! Thank You Father, for Your saving grace and Your mercy unto me. In Jesus’ name, I pray.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Saturday April 14, 2018

Receive God’s promises for today in your life!

Promises from God:
God promises us His spiritual blessings in and through His Word:

Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. (Psalms 119:89 NKJV) If His Word says it it is true –just believe that!
The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever. (Isaiah 40:8 NKJV) The Word of God is forever, it never changes nor does it diminish in power.

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11 NKJV) The Word of God when spoken in faith will cause to happen that which was spoken – believe it!

Then the LORD said to me, “You have seen well, for I am ready to perform My word. (Jeremiah 1:12 NKJV) If you will speak His Word God is ready and willing to perform it for you!

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12 NKJV)

But the word of the Lord endures forever. Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you. (1 Peter 1:25 NKJV)
Remember Spiritual blessings are positional truths declared by the Word of God. It is up to us through our faith to activate them and receive them. To make them a practical reality in our lives.

TODAY’S MANNA for Friday April 13, 2018

Does your Love endure forever?

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of heaven. His love endures forever.
Psalm 136:1 and 26 New International Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
Our thanks arise from the nature of God and His glory, His goodness, His mercy, and His love that He has bestowed upon us and through our faith in Jesus placed within us. The very reason we give thanks is because God is good and His love endures forever, it is beyond decay, and it never fails. If we have given ourselves to Him and have become children of God, He has placed His love (AGAPE love) within us and it should endure forever. We should therefore exhibit His Love in everything we do or say. For His Love we are eternally thankful!

MY PRAYER…
Oh Lover of my soul, thank You for sending Jesus as the demonstration of Your love. I love You Father. I love You for who You are and what You have done. I love You for what You have promised. I love You for the blessings You shower upon me. I love You for giving me hope. I love You because You first loved me. I love You because You are worthy of all my love. But I confess that my love is not as strong as Yours, so please, fill me with Your love by the power of the Holy Spirit. Cause my love to be as Your Love is. In Jesus’ name I lift my heart to You.
Amen

TODAY’S MANNA for Thursday, April 12, 2018

Jesus says: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you!

[Jesus said,] “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven.”
Matthew 5:43-45 New International Version

THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY’S VERSE…
We often talk about the privileges of being a child of God; forgiveness, salvation, a future in heaven with Him, healing for our bodies, prosperity, the gift of the Holy Spirit, and ultimate victory when Christ comes. One of the greatest privileges we get, however, is the opportunity to act toward those who dislike and hate us in a way that reflects the character and nature of God Himself. God is Love! Anyone can return hate for hate, but it takes a true child of God to return a blessing and a prayer for their enemies who hate and abuse them. The last bit of the above verse (since it is a part of the entire verse) also indicates, according to the Bible, that this action of loving, blessing, and praying for those who hate and despitefully use us is a necessary action needed to become a son (daughter) of God. “Faith without works is dead!” Works = corresponding actions, actions involved in doing the Word of God. Because in doing the Word of God do you work out your salvation through His grace, You become as He is.

MY PRAYER…
Father, thank You for loving me when I was still an enemy to You. Thank You for risking the death of Your Son to offer me the chance to accept or reject Your love. As You have promised, You are pouring Your love into my heart so I may love even my enemies as You have loved me. Father, by the power of Your Holy Spirit, help me to love everyone just as Jesus did and even now still does. Help me Lord to show that true AGAPE love to all I meet. Through Jesus, the gift of Your love, I pray.
Amen
