THE PAIN OF MANNA

The Pain of Manna. 
.
I have seen Christians, desire that God sends them manna. Well, if the motive behind their asking, is for God to supply divinely no problem. But, if it is because of free food or free things, then, there is a problem. 
.
Manna we see in scriptures came because the children of Israel were not in their promise land. The day they came to their promised land, manna ceased. It is obvious that manna was one of those things that they needed to get to the promise land but not what they are supposed to be eating on the promised land. 


.
Exo 16:35
And the children of Israel did eat manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat manna,  until they came unto the borders of the land of Canaan. 
.
Stop looking for manna when God can give you the fruits of Christ Jesus. Stop looking for babies food when Christ is willing to give you adult food or food for the matured Christian. 
.
The manna that the Israelites ate, was actually a thing of great pain because as long as they ate manna, it was obvious that they had not achieved destiny. They could have been happy that God was providing for them, unknown to them, their lives was being wasted for forty years, were they accomplished nothing tangibe but eat bread. What a shame? 




.
Men who could have made a difference, if they were born the first day (that is men who were forty years old) the manna started falling, were busy eating only manna and were satisfied because they lacked vision. And for forty years, more likely, were still eating in their mother's house as a child even when they had grown into an adult.
.
That same promised land, another man conquered in 3 days, because he had vision (Joshua). 
.
Manna caused them pain and made them blind to their destiny. When you are comfortable with the little freebies that God has given you. Then, you are just like them. 


.
When a youth who should be leading his nation, is busy carrying guns and cutlasses for men three times his age all in the name of do or die affair of politics. Then, he is like them. 
.
When you are happy that your parents are still sending you money at the age of 25 or after you have graduated from the University, and to you, it is not a problem. Then you are eating manna and have not stepped into destiny. 
.
When as a Christian, you are satisfied with how God uses people to meet all your needs. And even sometines, you boast about it. It is not bad, but know this, you are eating manna if you are not meeting the needs of others. "It is more blessed to give than to receive." 3
.
Some of the things we call the FAVOUR OR GRACE OF GOD is actually MANNA, that we have been enjoying, not knowing that we are NOT growing in Christ. Neither are we willing to enjoy the fruits of the promises of Christ.
.
Step into those promises and bring forth fruits that will give God glory. DONT REMAIN UNDER A SCHOOLMASTER THAT YOU HAVE tagged "GRACE." 
.
Break the status quo like the GENERAL, that you have been called to be. 
.
For the creatures are waiting for the EARNEST manisfestation of the sons of God (paraphrasing). 
.
ARISE SONS.
