Daily Manna

Daily Manna - Dec12

 



“Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.” (Gen.1:31)

Beloved! After creating the heaven, the earth and everything thereof, God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them (Gen.1:27). Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. He rested on the seventh day and sanctified and blessed everything that He had made. What could be the purpose of God to create man? I will explain three things to you. Firstly, they shall declare my praise (Isa.43:21). Once on a holiday, my daughter had come to our home from America. We used to take her 3-year-old daughter to the beach in the evening. On a full moon day, the light of the moon reflected on the sea. The sand was shining as gold. As soon as my 3-year-old grand daughter saw that, she revealed her surprise, saying, ‘Thank you Jesus.’ She, who had to thank the grandfather and grandmother for taking her to the beach, thanked the Lord. Yes, beloved! Be thankful. Secondly, He created them male and female and told them to be one, not as two. We can see the triune God revealing this truth (Gen.2:24; Mar.10:8; Eph.5:31). We can see Lord the God, Lord Jesus Christ and God the Holy Spirit revealing this through Paul. Have Jesus as your Saviour. The threefold cord is not quickly broken. Be of one mind, not as two. This is the desire of God. Thirdly, the Lord explains the purpose of creating them male and female in Mal.2:15. We see the Lord saying, “He created them male and female to bear a godly offspring. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously with the wife of his youth.” Grow the children earnestly in the knowledge of the Lord and in the fear of the Lord. Imbibe the word of the Lord in your heart and teach your children earnestly. The days of your life will be lengthened.

Prayer: Here am I and the children whom the Lord has given me! We are for signs and wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, Who dwells in Mount Zion. Amen!
