Manna in the Morning


Psalms 78:1-, “My people, hear my instruction; listen to what I say.  I will declare wise sayings; I will speak mysteries from the past—things we have heard and known and that our fathers have passed down to us.  We must not hide them from their children, but must tell a future generation the praises of the Lord, His might, and the wonderful works

He has performed.”

            The Psalmist, here speaking under the direction of God the Holy Spirit, tells all who will read to pay careful attention to the words in order to fulfill our faithful duties of passing on to our children all that the Lord God has done for us.  Things we know and have heard from our ancestors things we  need to make clear to those who follow us.  It doesn’t matter where we live or work, God’s blessings are not dependent upon geography or the size of the house in which we live, God blesses those who love Him whether they live a nomadic life sleeping in tents or in a stately home with all the modern conveniences. 

            It doesn’t matter whether we live in a country where the sharing of the gospel message is forbidden, barely tolerated, or may be shared without restrictions, God is faithful.  His love is ours without limit, His forgiveness is given to all who call upon Him and His grace is available to us in full measure. 

            We must tell our children and grandchildren the account of God’s goodness in our lives, the details of our salvation experience, the joy of witnessing to others, the implicit trust our God will honor and the promise of joy and contentment that is ours now and for all eternity.  We also need to share with them the life experiences we have endured that show’s God’s care and protection for each of us, whether it’s a recovery from serious surgery, the thrill of a short-term missions trip, His miraculous preservation through an accident or anything that would show how our omnipresent God has intervened in our earthbound lifes.  Never hide the wonderful things He has done.  Our Heavenly Father, thank you for your life giving power and the protection that is ours spiritually and physically, to keep us able to serve you this day.  In Jesus’ name we pray.
