Manna from Heaven (part 1)

Exodus 16:3-4

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!

God is Mighty

2 Chronicles 18/20:1

You are not alone. The battle goes to God! You can go to Him with any situation. The devil plans to destroy you because you can’t save yourself so you need to call on the Lord and say “I need you to save me! Without you I can’t live!”

We also need the gospel to do mighty things. God is Mighty!! He is mighty to save. We have temptation everyday. We have friends who drag us down to their lifestyle! BUT, even when we are bad, GOD LOVES ME!

We need to ask ourselves the question–“Why did You save me?” Why am I alive? ” We serve a God that is almighty. It is hard to understand why God loves me but He does! He is merciful and He constantly gives us chances to get right with Him!

Psalm 47 says ” He is our refuge and our strength,” He is always with us. The world can take my life but not my soul! NOTHING can separate us from the love of God! That is the MIGHTY God we serve! He is ALWAYS THERE —-ALWAYS!!

We are given a promise of eternal life. What a mighty God we serve! What a mighty God we serve to save a sinner like me.

We are surrounded by sin everyday and we have to pray daily for God to deliver us from temptation. The devil is fighting every day!!! We can take three steps forward and one step back but we need to get tired of fighting! We need to cry to the Lord to deliver us!! We always need Go to deliver us. The enemy will try to sidetrack us and bring up past mistakes and try to destroy our family BUT we have to let God hold it all in His hands.

The devil will never gives us a break! BUT TRUST IN GOD !! Why??

BECAUSE GOD IS MIGHTY!!

Stand on the Promises of the Almighty God

“I was glad when they said come to the house of the Lord.”

Jeremiah 32:17

God knows your situation. With trust and confidence we can lay it all on the altar! He will not leave you alone. We can trust Him no matter the situation. Abraham was told to drop everything so he could be shown the promise land. God wants us to drop everything so He can show us the promise land also!  It is human nature to not be able to grasp the power of the living God, But someday we will see beyond human nature!

I never thought I would walk a different life than what I had. I figured it was my lot in life . to either die of an overdose or armed robbery. We will overcome!! God will never leave us nor forsake us! We need to stand on the promise of the living God. He can bring you through! You need to put forth the confidence in Him!

I worked in tamale factory when I was young. I rode a bike to work. That bike had one bent wheel and 1 pedal. One day after work my bike was stolen! Wow, someone must have needed it worse than I did! I hitchhiked, rode the bus, etc. to get to work after that. I am so glad God had a better plan for my life!

God protects His children! Will it get heavy? YES! Sometimes stubbornness gets in the way also. Obey the word of God and allow yourself to fall into the hands of God.  We may have situations we cannot handle BUT  there is nothing too hard that God cannot do for you.

The key is to allow Him to be our God all the time, not just when you want Him to be! He always wants to be by your side. The simple power of the Mighty God is awesome, but we put limits on God. We need to understand that He is there to walk us through. He will never leave us but we will leave Him. We will leave and we will fail!

The strategy is to have faith in God. Jesus will help you cross the Jordan or the Red Sea and He will do it with understanding. Is there anything too hard for God? Don’t let the devil tell you you won’t make it! GOD WILL SEE YOU THROUGH!

Don’t lose your promise. When He said He will never forsake you…He meant it! He has never turned His back on me!

We serve a mighty God! Don’t let the enemy cheat you !!
