MANIFEST MANNA: Meditate on Isaiah 58:8-9. “Then your light will break forth like the dawn, and your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. Then you will call, and the Lord will answer; you will cry out for help, and he will say: Here I am.”
The root of this meditation has to do with the results one can experience when striving to please God. And one of the key ways that we please God is by reaching out to others. Ecclesiastes Chapter 3:5 says that there is a “time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing…” We are living in a time where we must accurately discern what season we are in–both personally and in the Body of Christ. The Spirit of the Lord is guiding us to treat this particular season very wisely–with radical obedience even when the directive makes no sense to us!
God was speaking to and through Isaiah about fasting in its traditional, man-made terms versus the kind of fast that HIS PARTICULAR SEASON called for: that is, to loose the chains of injustice, set free those who were oppressed, and share our resources with those in need. Once we make ourselves open and available to THIS kind of fast, the manifestation process begins! When we strive to live right, our righteousness “goes before us”–in other words, our reputation precedes us! Today, my prayer is that our reputation with God far outshines anything that man could ever attempt to flatter us with! Beloved, we are ANOINTED for THIS time. The light of God radiating through us has the power to heal our situations QUICKLY in ways that we know not. For everything that you have turned and walked away from for righteousness-sake, the GLORY of the Lord will overshadow you and the Holy Spirit will COMPLETELY cover & protect your backside from every dagger being thrown your way!
This is a ‘prophetic preview’ to your certain victory. God only shows us previews of a finished product–but sometimes He has to give it to us in “snippets”. The truth is, it’s already finished. It’s already done. It’s already ALRIGHT! As soon as you mind even thinks to cry out, He reminds us: “HERE I AM.” AMEN.
