2010 December 4 - Morning Manna

Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. (Hebrews 13:5)

Today's Morsel:  I can remember once I was the minister for a funeral, at the  end of the funeral when it was time to go to the grave site, no one took into consideration that I, the minister, would need a ride.  Everyone left me and I had to hitchhike to the cemetery for the conclusion of the service.  I laughed all the way, and even today my wife finds humor in telling this story.  Do you ever feel forsaken?  Do you ever feel as though everyone has left you?  Paul told Timothy that all that be in Asia had turn from him ( 2 Timothy 1:15).  Paul felt forsaken.   Jesus had many of His disciples forsake Him when He was arrested in the garden.  The true test of friendship if people stick close by you when you are facing circumstances and difficulties.  Hebrews 13:5 is a fulfillment of Joshua 1:5.  God wanted Joshua to know that He would not fail him nor forsake him.  And since the promise is to the seed of Abraham and we are that seed, God will not forsake us.  Therefore, we must learn to exercise our faith in God, when it seems as though everyone else has departed and left us to fend for ourselves.  As the psalmist said, "He shall give His angels charge over thee to keep thee in all thy way" (Psalms 92:11).  Therefore, open your spiritual eyes and you'll see a heavenly host right beside you.
Sing:  He will never fail, for He is God!  He will never fail, He gave His Word! He will never fail, He'll see you through!  He will never fail, for He loves you.
