Hanging on to manna


Rethinking the familiar when God calls you out

Joshua 5:12 Beginning after that Passover, the Israelites were no longer fed with manna, as they were in the desert. From the day they ate from the new land, the manna ceased. From then on they ate only the crops of the land of Canaan.
It occurred to me how many people stay stuck on neutral in their life with God. It’s like they continue to do the things on auto pilot like the crowd who ate manna (which was life-sustaining) instead of venturing into exciting pastures of Canaan-like territory that might cause potential discomfort, but provide growth and new insights.
How are you going to know if you like new crops if you continue to eat the familiar life-giving manna? 
Is God just at church for you? 
Is the Bible the book read by your priest, pastor or minister?
Do you know God’s heart on an intimate level? 
Have you tapped into delicious new crops available from the Holy Spirit? 
Remember that God cut off manna when it was time for the next phase.

Are your taste buds ready for God’s new and exciting flavors?
He’s waiting to share His feast with you.

Scripture: Psalm 92:12-15
Psalm 92:
12 Good people will prosper
    like palm trees,
    and they will grow strong
    like the cedars of Lebanon.
13 They will take root
in your house, LORD God,
    and they will do well.
14 They will be like trees
that stay healthy and fruitful,
    even when they are old.
15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Human life no longer matters

I'm deeply troubled and you should be, too. 

The sanctity of human life no longer matters. I'm outraged at the killing of yet another black man - two in one day - by police in this country. This is terrorism aimed at people of color. It is NOT acceptable - we are ALL created in God's image. 
Christians can't be quiet - no matter your color.
Philando Castille was shot and killed by police as he reached for his license while his girlfriend and child watched. The video making the rounds should make you cry - it could be your husband, son or brother!!

Stop and pray for his family and friends. Pray for Alton Sterling's family. Mr. Sterling was killed by police earlier in the day in Baton Rouge. 
This madness must stop. This is NOT okay. 
Genesis 1:27 So God did just that. He created humanity in His image, created them male and female.
