Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“The Proving of True Relationship”
Text: Exodus 16:4
“Then the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My law or not.”
“The Proving of True Relationship,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
God is testing or “proving” the True Relationship between Himself and Israel; and the test or “proof” will be discovered by their Obedience to His Commands and directions.
“God’s Blessing Comes with the Responsibility to Obey His Commandments.”
First; God sends manna from Heaven to meet their need for food - but Israel must go out and collect just enough for their “daily bread,” and not “save some for tomorrow. In other words, God is saying Trust Me for your bread each day! Israel failed the test by saving some manna for tomorrow, and it bred worms and stank up the whole camp!
Secondly; On the 6th day they were to gather enough for two days, so they could rest on the Sabbath - again, some people went out on the Sabbath looking for manna, and failed the test.
God still tests our True Relationship with Him by His Promises and Our Faith, Trust, and Obedience to His Word. If you and I Love Him We Will have Faith in Him, and we’ll Trust and Obey Him.
Again; “God’s Blessing Comes with the Responsibility to Obey His Commandments.”
Jesus said: “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”
“He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him.”(John 14:15,21)
You and I Trust God for our daily bread because He has Provided Himself, the True Bread from heaven for you and I every day!
“Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ”
Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”
And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.”(John 6:31-35).
The Proving of True Relationship with our Commander and King is a continuing Test with every
decision and choice we make.
The Faithful Warrior Chooses to Believe in their Commander Jesus Christ and to Trust and Obey Him; because You and I Love Him Supremely! We Are In True Relationship With Him! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
