Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2016 March 30

Then Moses heard the people weep throughout their families, every man in the door of his tent: and the anger of the LORD was kindled greatly; Moses also was displeased. And Moses said unto the LORD, Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me? Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers? Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat. I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. And if thou deal thus with me, kill me, I pray thee, out of hand, if I have found favour in thy sight; and let me not see my wretchedness. (Numbers 11:10-15)

Today’s Morsel:  One of the things about battle fatigue and battle stress is it can sneak up on you and render you ineffective.  Probably some of the greatest people suffering in the ministry from battle fatigue and battle stress are minister’s wives.  This is due mostly because the ministers' wives are drawn into the fight because of their spouses' calling to the ministry, not their own direct calling. Many of them have little or no training as to how to fight and defend themselves against inward and outward attacks by the enemy of their souls.  Moses was battle fatigued.  Due to the children of Israel’s continual rebellion and lack of cooperation, it pushed him to make wrong decisions and wrong choices.  The Bible says, “And Moses said unto the LORD, Wherefore hast thou afflicted thy servant? and wherefore have I not found favour in thy sight, that thou layest the burden of all this people upon me? Have I conceived all this people? have I begotten them, that thou shouldest say unto me, Carry them in thy bosom, as a nursing father beareth the sucking child, unto the land which thou swarest unto their fathers? Whence should I have flesh to give unto all this people? for they weep unto me, saying, Give us flesh, that we may eat. I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. And if thou deal thus with me, kill me.”  If you ever get to the point in your ministry where you begin to question God, you are tired and need to rest.  And if you as a saint ever feel what you may feel an attack from your spiritual leader, don’t take it personally, he or she may be fatigued because of the mission and others' rebellion.  Lift them up in prayer, support them and help them fight the battle.  

Sing: Lord You know I need a brand new touch, my strength from yesterday is gone, but if You give me Lord another touch, I’ll have the strength to carry on.

Thought For Today:  Jesus said, "Come apart and rest awhile."

    Since Saturday I decided to take my training for the next few weeks into my own hands as the current training and nutrition style was a little too much. I have 15 weeks to go, so not feeling the need to be so drained so far out.
