Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2017 September 2

“So the LORD blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. He had also seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren.” (Job 42:12-15).

Today’s Morsel:  One of the biggest deceptions from Satan is when he deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden into thinking that God was concealing something from her.  He hasn’t stopped deceiving women and nor will he.  I’m afraid, that so many ways, women and young girls are getting caught-up in Satan’s traps, not realizing that he is the great deceiver.  Thankfully, many women are awakening, realizing how they have been hoodwinked by him.  Paul said, that in the last days, evil men would creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts” (2 Timothy 3:6).  He told Titus  to teach, “That the age women teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.” (Titus 2:4-5).  But I am afraid that there are still many women who have already been deceived by Satan and are now wondering what has happen.  Solomon's mother told him, “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised” (Proverbs 31:30).   Scripture said that Job had three daughters, and in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job.  I believe that these three women were beautiful, above all others, because of one thing, their character.  If you feel that Satan has deceived you, Jesus calls to you to come to Him and let Him restore you to what He desired for you to be from the creation.  His desire is for you to be beautiful in character and godliness that shines outward to others.  

Sing: Like the woman at the well I was seeking, for things that could not satisfy, but then the Master spoke to me, said draw from the well that shall never run dry.
 Here’s my cup, Lord;  I lift it up, Lord. Come and quench this thirsting of my soul; Bread of Heaven, feed me till I want no more, fill my cup, fill it up and make me whole.

Thought For Today: Beauty is only skin deep.
