Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 August 30

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1).

Today’s Morsel: The Greek word for substance is the word, hupostasis (hoop-os'-tas-is), which is a support, assurance, or confidence.  So we can see that the thing that we need to support us and to keep us strong while we wait for what we may desire is faith.  Faith is like the stump and roots in the ground of a tree.  The Lord said through the prophet Isaiah that when the teil tree and the oak tree cast forth their leaves you know that there is substance in them (Isaiah 6:13).  In other words, you know that their support is intact and firm.  He said that He would be the substance in the earth.  A tree's roots are working if there are leaves on the tree because leaves don't grow on a tree whose roots and stump are dead.  Jeremiah said, “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit” (Jeremiah 17:7-8).  In other words, blessed is the man who has his faith in the Lord.  If he has faith in the Lord, he has substance to endure.  How is your support network working?  You will be flourishing with leaves if your roots are deep.  

Sing:  Faith can move mountains, mountains of fear and of doubt.  Faith can move mountains, so why don’t you try your faith out.
Thought For Today:  Faith is substance.

  6. The families those adopt these dogs have my full respect. I was reading stories online regarding a family that adopted a pair of dogs, one was blind and the other was his buddy who used to guide him through the ways. The reason why the family adopted both of them was because of the bond these two dogs had with each other.
