My Manna


"I will give you every place where you set your foot, as I promised Moses." Joshua 1:3.

Opportunity comes-
– to pass;
– not to pause!
When God told Joshua and the ancient Israelites that he had given them the Promised Land-
He certainly didn’t hand it to them on a silver platter.
To claim God’s promise, they had to battle every inch of the way.
They still had to go, conquer, and possess it.
The reality is, however, that had God not given it to them, they never would have been able to conquer and possess it.
And might I add-
– they wouldn’t still be there today!
God has a work for you and me to do too!
He will give us the opportunities every day to serve Him.
But it’s up to us to take advantage of these-
– as they come to pass,
– not to pause!
True, God feeds the sparrows.
But He doesn’t throw the food into their nests.
They have to go out and get it.
Whatever God has for us to do, he doesn’t do it for us.
He will guide us.
He will direct us.
He will give us wisdom.
But He won’t do it for us.
We, too, have to arise, go, and possess the opportunities and promises God has for us.
With God’s help, let us carpe diem!
Seize every opportunity to serve Him!
