There were 4 million people in the desert traveling to the Promised Land. They were hungry and they wanted something different than the manna that they had been fed every day. God prepared manna to sustain them the whole time they were in the wilderness. It was a good bread, not like rye or wonder bread. It was sweet like honey. It was a 2 year trip for all the Israelites going from Egypt to Canaan. They were tired of manna and wanted more. They finally turned to God, after trying to do it on their own and begged Him. He saw their immediate need.
It is not what you or I can do but it’s God’s purpose in His heart. He wants 2020 people to fill this church next year in 2020!
When the Children of Israel murmured and complained, there was still manna on the ground the next day. No matter how far you get from God, there will still be manna for you! It is all about God providing for us. We will mount on the wings of eagles, we will walk and not faint!
When we get up in the morning we need to say “I cannot wait to see what God has for me today!” There will still be manna on the ground!
God showed me last week when I was out of town that we have a mighty revival coming! If you are wanting a small church then you will have to go somewhere else, because this will not be it!!
God said to Moses to tell the children of Israel that they were only to gather the amount of mannah needed for that day because it would rot if they took more than needed and some of them did take more and guess what? It did rot!! Only on the 6th day were they allowed to gather enough for 2 days!
We need to realize that the prophecy given to us 5 years ago is not the same prophecy He has for us today!! Step out and get that new prophecy for you!! The manna is still there !
We fall down sometimes and have to literally crawl from our tents to the outside to receive our manna. During their long journey, the children of Israel had all their tents surrounding the tabernacle, which was right outside their tents. If you can crawl out of that tent there will be a tabernacle waiting for you with manna there also.
Remember that Jesus is the BREAD OF LIFE! He does not give us just any bread but Heavenly bread! Remember that it is not me , but CHRIST IN ME! We don’t understand why He gives us mercy, or manna, but that mercy is new every day!
The children of Israel got tired of manna everyday and wanted meat. Two years of it was a lot so they were not as excited about receiving manna after all that time!
Remember that many are called, but few are chosen. To be chosen is up to you. Are you going to get out of your tent?
Greater is He that is in me, than He that is in the world. Thank God He doesn’t leave me in my sin. We need to get back to the concepts that His mercies are NEW EVERY DAY!!
David learned as a young boy of 15 to depend on God. He ripped a bear apart with his own hands. He let the Lord sustain him. He called God his Refuge, Rock, Shield, Rescuer, Life, and Salvation.
So crawl out of that tent because there is manna right outside your tent. We are going to go forward… How?? By trusting in Jesus!! He got us here and He will keep us here! We need that manna!
Step out on faith and come to the altar for that manna you are needing ! The manna for the children of Israel was new every morning but they tired of it after 2 years. The thing is, there attitude changed about the manna …the manna did not change!
We need to put our faith in God and in His church and HE WILL OVERCOME!
The year 2020 is the Vision ! We are going to see the vision, but we must see God HIGH AND LIFTED UP!
