2010 June 14 - Morning Manna

The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed (Psalms 103:6).

Today's Morsel: In This scripture, the word oppressedcomes from the Greek word, âshaq, aw-shak'. which means to press upon, that is, defraud, violate, deceive, used , do violence to or wronged. Because Jesus is the righteous judge, He will execute judgment for us. Vengeance is mine saith the Lord. Therefore, when others do us wrong, defraud, or misuse us, we shouldn't take matters into our own hands, but allow God the time to handle our case for us. Jesus said, in your patience possess ye your soul (Luke 21:19). We can lose out if we take matters into our hands, because we will look to get even instead of being fair. If we judge others who wrong us, our judgment towards them will be much more severe. Knowing this, Jesus tells us through the apostle Paul these words: "Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good" (Romans 12:20-21). Always remember that Jesus' ways are not ours. And neither should our ways be the ways of the people of the world.

Sing: I know Lord will make a way for you. I know the Lord will make a way for ypu. If you live a holy life, shun the wrong and do the right, I know the Lord will make a way for you.
