Daily Manna, the realm where Heaven and earth meet I’m

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.  Isaiah 41:10.

Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.  Ephesians 6:10.

Today your LORD (יהוה) God says:

Today I want to talk with you about leaning on Me. Let Me be your strength.

Learn to lean on Me. Be strong in Me and the power of My might. Learn to draw on Me. Do not try to do things in your own strength, do them in Mine. Cast all your cares on Me because I care for you.

Learn to live on Me and through Me. I am the Bread of Life.  My flesh is real food, and My blood real drink. And My Word is food for your spirit.

Abide in Me. Like a branch on a vine.

Learn to draw My peace, My wisdom, My strength, My power, My love, My joy, My abundance into your life. I have given them to you in Christ Jesus. Then you enter My rest and work from there. And then your life will flow and glow, a light for all to see.

Those who wait on Me soar with eagles’ wings, they run and do not grow weary, walk and do not grow faint.

I uphold you with My strong right hand.

Come to Me all you who are weary and find life burdensome and I will refresh you. I give you living water that becomes a well, a river, within you leaping up to eternal life. Drink deeply of the river of delights.

I made everything for you, you might as well enjoy everything that I have given you freely in Christ. I fill your days with good things but some people never recognize them and they pass them by because they take no time to notice them.

Yes, I instruct you to live in Me and draw all your strength and supply from Me, but people do not generally do this. That is why many followers of Mine experience burn out and wear themselves out working for Me. Their problem is they are working in their own strength and not Mine. They are performing for Me rather than with Me. Never work for Me, I do not use people, I partner with them. Work with Me. I empower people by My Spirit to do mighty and excellent works. But what I call mighty and excellent works, may not be what the world would generally classify as such. It may be as simple as giving a cup of cold water to one of My thirsty children or encouraging a friend or acquaintance. The one is wise who saves souls for that is eternal work and is very fruitful, for that is My heart’s primary desire–that all people be saved and come to know the truth that is in Jesus. He is My greatest gift to you and most excellent work.

It is by grace, the unmerited favor that has come to you through Jesus Christ, that you are saved, born again, and filled with My Spirit. My grace gives you wisdom, skill, provision and ability to do great and creative works. Remember Bezalel? My grace is sufficient for you; you do not need anything else for with the help of My grace you can do all things. My Spirit teaches you all things and sends you just the right people to enable to you to do what I have planned for your life.

Grace is My life flowing into you and empowering you to do Kingdom work on earth, to perform the impossible. And that grace is not meant to stay hidden in you but to flow from you to others, enriching and blessing them, and then the grace poured in others to flow into your life to enrich and bless you just when you need it. This is the Body of Christ doing His works and greater on earth for He is now with Me and anything you ask in His Name, He will do. It is His power that will do it, but if you are attached to Him as the branch in the vine, that power is flowing into you and you will bear the fruit.

I am not saying you do not work and participate actively. Paul worked harder than all the other apostles but he told you how, by My grace and not on his own so he could not boast but in Me. And Joseph did great works as the highest government official in Egypt, indeed, he fed Egypt and the surrounding peoples during seven years of extreme famine. And Daniel was top advisor to three pagan nations. David was a wonderful king and his son Solomon operated at first in the greatest wisdom the world had ever known. When you work with Me and let Me flow My life, strength and wisdom into you, you are more fruitful in a short time and accomplish more in a few years than most people do in their entire life time. You know the right thing to do at the right time and in the most efficient manner. You do not waste time in trial and error and unnecessary detours.

Do not rely on your own strength, it is limited and fragile. Rely on Mine. I have an unending source of supply.

That is what Paul meant when he said, “I can do all things through Him that strengthens me.”  I strengthen you. Let Me. Tap into My power, do not just lap the power. For in weakness power reaches perfection. My grace is sufficient for you to meet any need or adversity.

Well, you may think this sounds great but are probably asking how you can do this. Let Me show you the Way. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life, so you know the answer must be in Him.

Jesus lived like this. It is true He is God, the Second Person of the Trinity, My Son, but when He became flesh He emptied Himself of His powers as God and limited himself to human abilities. Philippians 2:5-11.

If you note My Son did a tremendous amount of good in a short time, but never seemed rushed or stressed out. He had peace and joy all the time. It is written that He rejoiced in the Holy Spirit. Luke 10:21.

My Son abided in Me and welcomed Me to live in Him by the Holy Spirit. He was one with Me. He told you that He did not do anything on His own but only what I told Him and showed Him. He told you that He did not do the works but it was Me living in Him that did the works. When He felt weak in the Garden of Gethsemane, I sent an angel to strengthen Him.

He told you that you could have the same relationship with Me that He did. He prayed for it at the Last Supper. That we would all be one in each other.

He gave you the secret of how to lean on Me at the Last Supper. He told you two things. First, He told you that He would send you the Holy Spirit to be with you and in you always to teach you all things, guide you to all truth, and tell you of the things to come. Second, He told you that He is the vine, you are the branches and I am the vine dresser. He explained that if you live in Him, like a branch in the vine, you will have all you need to be fruitful and to have all your prayers answered. And the Holy Spirit living in you will give you power and direction in all areas. This is the only way to live to have complete joy and stand up to any trial.

And Jesus explained to you how to achieve this union, this attachment, this oneness, it is by keeping My Word. It is that simple yet that complicated. It means walking in the Light and letting My Light lead you. It means being sensitive to My Spirit and mindful of Me at every moment.

It means connecting and expecting.

You connect with Me in Jesus. He makes us One for He is God and Man. We communicate in Him. Holy Communion, where you become a partaker of the Divine Nature and receive all the perfection of Jesus. Yes, I have given you the food to make you strong. I have given you the Body and Blood of My Son. Just as I sustained the Israelites in the wilderness by giving them Manna every day without fail, so I have given you the true Bread of Life for your healing, strength, and eternal life.

And being connected with Me in My Son gives you a whole new way of living. Newness of life! Putting off the old weak man and putting on the new man filled with the Holy Spirit and faith.

It means when you want to lie, you remember Me and relying on Me to give you the strength and the grace not to do so as you turn to Me and receive My grace, which enables you not to lie. You know that you are in Jesus and He is the truth so you also try to speak the truth with love. It means when you want to be cranky and sarcastic, you refrain and smile kindly instead, drawing on My love in you. It means instead of a temper fit, you sit down and mediate, answer calmly and work things out according to My principles of love and purity, drawing on My peace inside you. It means you stop abuse and lust before they take control, drawing on the fruit of the Spirit inside you, one of which is self-control. It means you do not gossip and judge, drawing on My wisdom inside you. You do not wag the finger at another, drawing on My mercy inside you. It means you are not jealous but rejoice in another’s success and learn from them to have your own, drawing on My joy and blessing within you. It means you love at all times in the true sense of the word as I define it in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, knowing and drawing on the true Love inside you which I pour into your heart by My Holy Spirit.

But above all it means you seek Me and know Me by faith. That you know My love and goodness and trust Me to care for everything in your life as you walk it out in My Light. It means you do not fear the drought for your roots are tapped into the stream. It means when you see a mountain you do not cry out in bitterness and bewilderment but face it and move it with My Word and My Name. It means you do not worry. You come and get My strength, My grace. And how do you get that? You ask for it without doubting. I tell you to come boldly to My throne to receive grace and mercy just when you need it, right at the right time. But come boldly like I tell you and believe you receive before you even see it manifest.

It all has to do with faith. And this comes from hearing and hearing and hearing My Word. For My Words are life to those who find them and health to all their flesh.

If you live like that you will soar through life above the mountain heights. The mountains are high but higher I ride and I am at your side to be with you wherever you go.

I give you how to do it in My servant Paul’s letter to the Philippians. He faced great adversity and needed to draw on My strength at all times to make it through all he encountered. I will discuss this in a moment but first you need a foundation. My disciple John and My servant Paul both knew this. They both knew I was there for them and that I loved them. So first you must know and believe in the love I have for you and that I am there to meet your needs. 1 John 4:16; 2 Timothy 1:12. That I care for you, hear you, and answer you. 1 Peter 5:7, Jeremiah 33:3, Matthew 7:7-11.

After that foundation is firmly established in your life, and faith comes by hearing My anointed Word, so read the Scriptures on My love and care for you (the Bible is packed full of these because My favorite subject is how much I love you), you must not let yourself be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to Me and My peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. In other words, when anxiety starts in your mind speak words of confidence in My love and provision out loud to stop those thoughts and then draw close to Me and lean on Me while you tell Me about it and tell Me how you would like to see it resolved, petition Me according to My promises, speak the solution and bind the problem, cast the care of it on Me and ask for the wisdom and strength to bring about the answer, then thank Me for hearing you and resolving it and step out in confidence to do whatever you perceive from My Word in you and in the Scripture. And then do not think about the bigness or impossibility of resolving things but instead make your thoughts dwell on the wonderful miracle I am about to perform in your life and on other glorious dreams and plans. I tell you exactly where to direct your thoughts. Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, excellent or praiseworthy, think on these things. I will be with you to give you peace. And you will see them manifest.

Be thankful. Notice good things that come each day. They are there.

Just lean on Me. Still and quiet your soul like a child in his mother’s arms and keep your eyes fixed on Me. Learn to draw on Me in faith and you will get results. Do not work for Me, work with Me. Let My power be in you.

Remember My Son told the disciples as He ascended into Heaven that they would receive power when the Holy Spirit came upon them. The same is true today. When the Holy Spirit comes upon you, you receive power. You are not weak. You are powerful if you receive My Holy Spirit.

Please lean on Me in everything and draw on My mighty power and provision. I love to give it to you. Without Me you can do nothing, so do everything with Me, because in Me you can do all things.

I sent My Son to serve you and not to be served. And He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He still is there to serve you.

I also made the angels as ministering spirits unto the heirs of salvation. And if you are in My Son, that is you.

I am present as your helper–an ever-present help in time of trouble.

I have you covered–past, present and future for I am, I was, and I am to come. So do not fear. I am with you wherever you go.

I love you. Abide in Me.
