2011 September 13 - Morning Manna

 For the upright shall dwell in the land, and the perfect shall remain in it. But the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it. (Proverbs 2:21-22)

Today's Morsel: I always get a chuckle when saints get upset about all the injustices in the political realm these days.  When will we realize that sinners do sinful things?  The world isn't going to get any better, I don't care what politians promise you.  Scripture says, "But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived" (2 Timothy 3:13).  Don't get me wrong, I do believe that we should be aware of what is taking place so that we know the correct way to pray for our nation and our leaders, but to get a bent around the axle over their injustices and lose sleep and get stressed out over it isn't going to happen on my watch.  God says that the wicked shall be cut off from the earth, and the transgressors shall be rooted out of it.  Therefore, I'll just let God deal with them while I pray for their souls to be saved.   David said, "Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away. Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish" (Psalms 1:1-6).  If you retain your uprightness, you'll see every wicked way perish.

Sing:  Oh I want to see Him, look upon His face, there to sing forever of His saving grace, on the street on glory, let me lift my voice, cares all past, home at last ever to rejoice.
