Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 January 15

Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail, Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war? 
(Job 38:22-23)

Today's Morsel:  One of the things about living in Wisconsin is you can go from no snow to feet of snow in a moment's notice.  When we look at snow it's pretty amazing.  It's light and fluffy when it comes down, but as those flakes join together they can bring a nation to a standstill.  Snow represents many things. Unity.  Purity.  Cleanliness. Righteousness.  Clean and white.  God relates the removal of one's sins to it (Isaiah 1:16-18).  When one repents of his sins and is baptized in the name of Jesus, they become clean and pure from their sins.  They become pure at that moment.  But in order to remain in that state, they have to purpose in their heart to remain pure and not allow sin to reenter their heart. Where so many fail, is when they listen to the enemy telling them that no one is perfect and without sin. Well if you believe that lie from the devil, then you will never see yourself as what God says that you are and can become.  You will always believe Satan more than God.  If a new born baby doesn't know sin, and when you are born again your sins are washed away, then why do you keep believing that you are a sinner?  You are only a sinner if you practice and do sin.  God gives us a chance to start new when we are born again, but if we think we aren't then so are we.  Hummm!  It's always better to trust in the Lord then to put your confidence in man.  Have you entered into the snow?

Sing: Whose report will you believe?  We shall believe the report of the Lord. Whose report will you believe?  We shall believe the report of the Lord.  His report says I am healed, His report saying I am filled, His report says I am free, His report says victory.

Thought For Today:  If you believe that no one is perfect, you don't know Jesus!
