Today’s Manna

Daily Reading for Friday, March 27, 2020
Scripture: Proverbs 16:7
“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
Meditation:

“If you work in right lines, God will make your enemies to be at peace with you. He will uphold and strengthen you. Make a covenant with God that you will guard well your words. ‘If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body’ (James 3:2). Remember that a revengeful speech never makes one feel that he has gained a victory. Let Christ speak through you. Do not lose the blessing that comes from thinking no evil.

“Remember that prayer is the source of your strength. A worker cannot gain success while he hurries through his prayers and rushes away to look after something that he fears may be neglected or forgotten. He gives only a few hurried thoughts to God; he does not take time to think, to pray, to wait upon the Lord for a renewal of physical and spiritual strength. He soon becomes weary. He does not feel the uplifting, inspiring influence of God’s Spirit. He is not quickened by fresh life. His jaded frame and tired brain are not soothed by personal contact with Christ. ‘Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.’(Psalm 27:14).” 1
