MY HAPPIEST MEMORIES
God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus
Philippians 4:19, NKJV.
When the people of Israel were in the desert on the way to the Promised Land, God gave them manna to eat. That was good. It sustained them for a while, but it wasn’t permanent provision. Eventually, the manna stopped coming. The people had to move forward, and then God gave them quail. They were so excited. That fed them for a while, but it was also temporary.
See, God gave the Israelites temporary provision on the way to the Promised Land where they would have permanent provision. The fact that God had something much greater in store for their future is what kept them moving forward. God could have sustained them with manna or quail, but God is a god of increase. He works in seasons, and He always has something better in store.
Don’t get stuck in a rut and think that one way is going to last forever. Instead, stay open and be willing to change, make adjustments, make corrections or try something new. If the “manna” stops coming, don’t get upset. Just keep moving forward and be on the lookout for the new provision God has in store for you!
The eye is a powerful gateway to our body, soul and spirit. Whatever we allow in through our eyes will fill our entire being. For example, if we are looking at pornography, our minds will be filled with porn images. If we watch violent movies and TV, our minds will be full of violence.
Jesus pointed out that we have the power to choose what we view with our eyes. We have a responsibility as followers of Jesus to ensure that we are not feeding our eyes with evil. If we choose to look at wholesome and good things, we will be “full of light,” shining like a lamp. This in turn will help us get our thoughts focused on Godly things instead of sinful things. Paul wrote, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things” (Philippians 4:8 NIV).
Consider that God wants to use each of us as lights in the world. He paid a tremendous price for each of us to be reconciled to him, such that we could live as redeemed sons, experiencing the joys of knowing him and furthering his kingdom on earth. When we take care to control what our eyes see, we’ll be helping to ensure that we remain filled with God’s light and not the darkness of sin.
Seek first the kingdom of God, and all His righteousness.
Every breath that I take, every moment I’m awake, Lord have Your way in me.

The scariest thing about distance is you don’t know whether they’ll miss you or forget you
