TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I am in you and you are in Me. Do you sense My presence? I am here. I see you and am with you wherever you go. I am the Bread of Life. Find your sustenance in Me. Wear My presence like a cloak and you can go anywhere!
ENJOY THE MANNA!
The Wilderness has some really cool lessons. Like the awesome thing that happened every day for 40 years after the Exodus – when God’s people wake up, there’s food on the ground.
That would be a game-changer for me! The people would pick it up and eat it, but they were not allowed to gather two days worth, except for the day before the Sabbath. The lesson here? You don’t get to plan past the day in front of you when you’re learning to rely on God for your provision.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I am about the rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not…” – Exodus 16:4-5
Yup, there’s a stage you go through where God doesn’t let you make plans for the far-off future. You just have to learn to live within the day you’re in – with Him and yes, it’s a test!
To pass, you’re supposed to grow up and get past the “I just need to survive the day” stage. It doesn’t mean you’re weak if it takes a while. You get to move forward when you learn to value the presence of God more than you value the thing you had.
That’s when the Spirit actually displaces the enemy within your life, and I love that. Once that enemy thought process, situation, relationship or habit is displaced, you cross another Jordan River and there’s your Promised Land!
Are you surviving in the Wilderness? A better day is coming for you! When you learn to let Him provide while you enjoy His presence, you’ll find yourself taking steps into places you never thought you’d go! For now, enjoy the manna!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO LET JESUS DISPLACE SOME ENEMIES IN YOUR LIFE. HAVE A VALUE FOR GOD’S PRESENCE.
