In His Word 1-13-2020

And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. Genesis 1:26-28

Today I was thinking about how that in our lives we try to do everything ourselves, its human nature, but, you know if you think about it Adam - man being formed in His image, God is a lot like that too! The difference is that He can handle it, we cannot! Even so, God got angry now and then throughout history and we need to remember that our lives are at stake! We need to live a life pleasing to God. Throughout history those who did not got killed, destroyed, cast into dungeons, or just stuck having to walk in a desert for 40 years of their lives.  Living in a desert, if you can realize that life, without the city just open space. Think of vast areas of dry ground, with mountains and dry barren land. I mean sure, in some parts it would have been beautiful, but also that was all. There was really no useful vegetation unless it rained, even then it was limited. Other than those they had with them, there were not so many animals; so food was near non-existent. this is why the manna from heaven and the quail too! 

In a sermon a Pastor said ,  “Imagine that each day you had door dash to your front door for free!   The Israelites’ had the first door dash! When God dropped quail by the thousands not just a few! there was one for every household and just like the mana it was for a day not to be reused etc.
The point being God gives us direction in His Word, he sometimes gives us direction through a preacher or a teacher of the Word, and sometimes He speaks to our hearts and minds about how to live a life pleasing to Him that often benefits us more than we can imagine.

 When God gives us something it is for the moment, we need to stand on that moment and use it for that specific timeframe that He wants us to use it. My writing for instance, it is for a time that is specific! Still, God can take what I wrote ten years ago and bring it to someone today and they can find the Word of God in it. Because of that, God can reactivate a book and bring it to light to show that the truth is in it. That is one of the cool things about writing Bible studies, you know that they will always come back into style.
There is always someone who wants to study that book, or that topic, or that whatever,
He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee.  So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord—  for we walk by faith, not by sight. 2 Corinthians 5:5-7
So what ever it is that you are walking through today, look to God for your daily Manna, quail or even a Word from the Word of God. He has something there specific to your moment in time!
Heavenly Father, help us to see Your message to us in the Word for today. For this time frame in which we live has words from the Word of God, we have our Bibles translated so much that we just need you to show us the Word to understand it. Guide our day, and our reading in Jesus’ name, amen.
