Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 January 30

Then again Abraham took a wife, and her name was Keturah. And she bare him Zimran, and Jokshan, and Medan, and Midian, and Ishbak, and Shuah. And Jokshan begat Sheba, and Dedan. And the sons of Dedan were Asshurim, and Letushim, and Leummim. And the sons of Midian; Ephah, and Epher, and Hanoch, and Abida, and Eldaah. All these were the children of Keturah. And Abraham gave all that he had unto Isaac. But unto the sons of the concubines, which Abraham had, Abraham gave gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.
(Genesis 25:1-6)

Today’s Morsel:  After the death of Sarah, Abraham took another wife and had six more children by her.  The Bible says that he gave to them gifts, and sent them away from Isaac his son, while he yet lived, eastward, unto the east country.  But he gave Isaac all that he had.  Paul told the church at Ephesus, “There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore he saith, when he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men” (Ephesians 4:4-8).  Many people have giftings, talents, and abilities from God, but it doesn’t mean that He’s given them all.  Abraham had many sons, but only Isaac was by promise.  Therefore, he received everything his father had.  When you receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, which is the promise, you are entitled not only to gifts but to everything the Father has.  It is the Holy Ghost that brings us to the fullness of all that Jesus would have us be.

Sing:  I am a promise, I am a possibility; I am promise with a capital “P”, I am a great big bundle of potentiality. And I am learning to hear God’s voice, and I am learning, to make the right choice, I am promise to be everything God wants me to be.

Thought For Today:  Every good gift and perfect gift is from above and cometh down from the father of lights.
