From Heaven

From Heaven

I will never forget the first time that I heard the story of the Children of Israel and Moses in the wilderness (Exodus 16:31, Psalm 78:24), when God sent manna from Heaven. Closing my eyes, I could vividly imagine tasting the delectable bread in my mouth as it fell from the highest heights. Oh, how powerful the imagination of a child is.

With age, our imaginations seem to dwindle while our worries tend to triple! However, that shouldn’t be the case, as Jesus’ death was the promise that all our needs (and wants J) would be taken care of. After committing to my top choice for college, there were a lot of things to be concerned about. Would I get scholarship? Am I ready to grow up? Will I enjoy college life? These questions continued to plague my mind, until I let my childlike imagination have its time on my mind’s center stage. I could see doves carrying everything I needed down to earth for me, with God providing for all my needs. I could feel confidence in what God and my parents have instilled in me rising up, with a peace that Jesus wouldn’t lead me to anything that wasn’t worthy of Him dying on the Cross.

“Every desirable and beneficial gift comes out of heaven. The gifts are rivers of light cascading down from the Father of Light. There is nothing deceitful in God, nothing two-faced, nothing fickle.” -James 1:17 MSG

Expect wonderful things to out pour from the abundances of Heaven in your life! You, Jesus and manna all descended from the place, we will one day return…

Until Thursday,

  1. I had been talking about this scripture(james) with God all during the weekend. It’s ok to expect God to give good things. I agree that as you age, sometimes you let life take away that child like faith that we’re supposed to have. I was literally talking to God about that this morning lol.

    1. Isn’t that amazing…thanks for sharing with me! I love how confirmation from God can come through anyone and anything at anytime.
