The Manna Of Truth
The province of God is the focus of this song, in these words, "the Lord is my Shepherd I shall not desire anything that the Lord has provided me." We need to embraced what God has given us. When the Children of Israel were in the the wilderness they were feed manna from Heaven when the food they brought from slavery ran out. The manna was a flake-like substance that they used to make flat bread that gave them nutrition and a unique diet, it had a honey-like taste and was not intended to be stored for no longer than a day (give this day our daily bread). It represented the Bread Of Heaven and was symbolic of the Eucharist bread of Christ and also represents the Grace of God, the sweetness of Salvation. We as heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ Jesus, acknowledge the provision of God but often think ourselves wanting beyond the provisions of God. The Children of Israel could not see that God was preparing them for their future and like us, complain about what God provided instead of accepting what He allowed. Manna is special provision that is intended to prepare us for our purpose in His Grace for His Glory.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
1 John 3:15-17
Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?
Jehovah Jireh, The LORD Will Provide (Genesis 22:14); we come in a spirit of oneness declaring our choice for Your provision without we suffer the nature of self-inflicted nonsense (SIN) and bear the infirmities of our lust. We who love our brothers and acknowledge the Love and Sweet Grace of God through the sacrifice of His dear Son do give praise for His Manna. We decree and declare blessings upon those who decide to follow the example laid at the altar of sacrifice laid, so that who ever gives unto his brother as God has given to us shall share the compassion of the Kingdom in everlasting and eternal Life. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom and for the Glory of God, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
