As I was thinking about something that I would like to share this Christmas with your readers, a thought came to me. Why not share something fresh and needful. I was reminded of the children of Israel when Moses was leading them out of Egypt’s bondage. They were murmuring, and complaining, accusing Moses and Aaron of leading them out into the wilderness to die. God was very displeased with it, so He sent food down from heaven for them. God has precise instruction for the distribution of it. Take the manna for instance. They were to gather no more and no less than they needed for the day. If they gathered more, and tried to save it, then it bred worms and stank.
I am reminded of an incidence a year or so ago. I was concerned because my computer had basically crashed, and some of my writings were gone. My granddaughter said to me, “Grandma, maybe God wants you to write new ones.” Hello.
Now, I don’t want to offend anyone, especially since it is Christmas, but, perhaps if our ministers would listen closely when preparing for Sundays message, they might hear the words of their Heavenly Father saying to them, son, daughter, the manna that you served last week was for feeding your people last week! How about giving them some fresh manna from your pulpit Sunday. You know my child, I still speak to my children daily. You don’t have to dig up a sermon from off of your shelf or look one up on the Internet. That is a real insult to me. Those are the words I believe God is speaking to His leaders today.
We are living in perilous times. We need God in our lives like never before. In our country, we have churches on almost every corner. Sadly, it is not being reflected in our society. Something is wrong. The scripture admonishes us to seek out the old paths, and walk in them. Therein, is peace, and rest for our souls.
May God so richly bless you all this Christmas and always.
