DAILY MANNA, Fill In 28, ^_^, For this reason a man shall leave his mother and father and cleave to his wife. Now to those who are not married, you shall cleave to Christ. Other translations say, joined to, united with, or become one flesh. We know that Christ lives in us and we are joined by His flesh to be one with Him. Who are not married, Christ becomes your bridegroom, yes even to a male. One with Christ forsaking all others besides Him for there is no other that you shall be joined with in flesh until you are presented to your mate. Now this means that your body is now His body and His body is now your body. And yes, what’s His is yours, what’s yours is now His. You who are single can’t give your body to anyone else while you are single. To stay pure in Christ is a hard task, so doing what the Word says is one way, but to imagine yourself having Christ body before you fall to any sin is more powerful. Imagining the outcome before doing anything helps you not to give in. I know in the flesh though at times feels there is no joy, but in the spirit there is joy that Christ is with you and his peace will surpass all understanding of what’s happening in your mind and flesh as it yearns for fulfillment. Take joy in knowing Christ is with you as you patiently wait upon the Lord for your mate.

DAILY MANNA, Fill In 27, *+=, There is an un-utilize source of power that we fell to speak out. Far when we do use it’s there as a spark and a flame that is centered inside us that lights us up. It empowers us to move out with boldness. It compels us to fight harder and to get up when we fall. There is no other power on earth like it. This power makes all your enemies stop in their tracks. Even humans recognize it for what it is and either repel or come in agreement for they are hurting for its power. Un-utilize because we don’t use it enough for in these days the enemy is building up his warriors against the children of God. Don’t be the one they ask, why didn’t you call on the name of Jesus? There is power in that name. Power untapped, power un-utilized, power not shown to the enemy, and for without the use of this power you will only walk in your own strength. You along are weak for when the pressure of life comes against you there is a source of power unmatched by the enemy and he knows it. So the question remains, why aren’t you using it enough or at all? The greatest sword is the one that doesn’t remain in its sleeve.

DAILY MANNA, Fill In 26, @++, Looking at where you are right now in your walk with the Lord, is there any stumbling blocks that are keeping you from pursuing God’s best for your life? Anything that you know that is in the way of seeing your true self? What’s that one thing you can put your finger on that you wish you could stop or put behind you so you can pursue your destiny, your purpose for being here? Or are you that one person who thinks he has it altogether, that everyone around you needs help, and you don’t know why God wouldn’t bless what you are doing with your life? Do you walk around with blinders on not being made aware that anything is wrong, that life must be like this for you? Are you sad at the fact that God doesn’t allow you to keep this charade up, so you can stay where you are, because the real you scares you? What about pruning? Will God allow you to go thru things to teach you a lesson about yourself, so you could change this person you like so much? The truth of the matter is that you must become that person God created you to be. We must stop living this life so we could fit into this world around us. If God has to do a little pruning then so be it. Allow Him to change and develop you for the real you is screaming to get out.

DAILY MANNA, Fill In 25, !+!, We struggle daily as Christian living in this world where we try to fit in and not stand out too much unless we have to. We want all the blessings and favor of God, but we fell to go all in or all out for Christ. We want to be known as a Christian at home, at church and in Heaven, but the world doesn’t know who we are or what we believe. We want Heaven to intervene on our behalf and we want the protection of the hedge of God surrounding us at all times, but that’s good only when we are out there doing the work in the fields. What’s good about having a hedge of protection from the enemy when the enemy see’s you on his side most of your life. He won’t bother you too much as long as you are not saying you are a Christian and not doing those things God ask of you to do. As long as you stay in the darkness and not let your light shine, the enemy won’t care too much about you. Then what good are God’s blessings on your life? What Good is the favor of God you ask for when you are not showing your true self to the world? You are living in the shadows not being recognized for the light that lives in you, which can’t be hidden. Don’t ask for the things God so freely gives each of us if you won’t use them for the Kingdom.

DAILY MANNA, Fill In 24, ^++, Question is if this was your last day or moment on earth, what would be your last act? Would it be un-forgiveness? Would it be that last sin that you just couldn’t help yourself doing? When you have battled so much and you give in just one more time, but then you are gone. When you face Christ, what would be your answer? When all you have done is being played back on the Big Screen TV in Heaven, what are all your excuses that you know He knows everyone before you even say them? Yes, He knows what things you deal with in the flesh, that’s why He sent Jesus to show you it all can be done. If this was your last and final moment unknowingly would you want it to be something amazing, like conquering your flesh, or helping and serving those less fortunate than you? Battles of the flesh are fought in the mind, so feed it the Word daily or as much as needed to increase your power over your flesh. It’s like pouring fresh water in a class filed with dirty water, as you continue to do it all that will be left is fresh water.

DAILY MANNA, July 7, Fill In 23, +=+, The favor of God is upon you and He has anointed you to carry out His purpose in the land that you are standing on. In order for you to receive what God has bestowed/entitled you to have in order to operate to the best of the powers given you, let go of what you are going through right now. Not just let go of the past and put it behind you, but completely erase images of bad habits, mistakes, and things wrongly happen to you. Whether from others, family, friends or self-inflicted wrongs, they are not what made you the way you are, even though some may have contribute to this stage of life you’re in. The challenge now is to take on a new way of thinking by saying what you are really here to do. There is no greater time in our history that we need to take up our true self and lead the way for the rest of the world. We each have a part to play for the future and we do need you to step up and stand out. Receive the free gifts God has bestowed upon you to carry out the high call in Christ Jesus. Your job or career or any future aspirations about positioning yourself for the future doesn’t matter if it doesn’t include the real reason you’re here for; To make a difference by doing your part in life with the power given you to carry it out.
