Devotional Our Daily Manna April 18 2019 : YOUR CHARACTER DETERMINES YOUR CROSS-OVER!

Devotional Our Daily Manna April 18 2019



It was Booker Washington, an American educator and civil rights activist (1856-1958), who penned: “Character, not circumstance, makes the person.” Hear the “immortal” Albert Einstein: “Most people say that it is intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.” The pocket dictionary defines character as “moral strength.” Your moral strength is your behaviour – your ability to distinguish between right and wrong.

That means if you do the wrong thing in the dark (when no one is watching), then your character (moral strength) is bankrupt! Character is what you are in the dark and God is asking you to cut off that bad, secret personality, which no one sees.  Margaret Titzel asked: “Why are we surprised when fig trees bear figs?” Truly, character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. From today’s scripture, remember that there was a time the people of Ephraim (double fruitfulness) were not fruitful; they could not cross over to their next level because they could not pronounce       the        word, “SHIBBOLETH.” SHIBBOLETH signifies a river or a stream. The truth is that, any person with Hebrew character must be able to pronounce “SH”(SHIBBOLETH) instead of “Si” (SIBBOLETH) and that was how 42,000 souls died. They were 42,000 Hebrews who lived like Greeks and so they could not cross over and many believers are like that! What is that wrong habit that you are used to? Do you know that it will stop you at the juncture of your needed crossover? Repent from pronouncing “SIBBOLETH” instead of “SHIBBOLETH.”

Repent from that secret lifestyle! Hear Baron McCauley: “The measure of a man’s character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out.” Never ever forget this medicine: (James Joyce): “Your destiny, your next level is tied to your character!” Watch! I see a new beginning and I see great testimonies of STORY to GLORY joy as you deal with your secret self!

Our Daily Manna April 16 2019 – TAKE A BOW, BUT DON’T QUIT!

Count Your Blessings | Johnson Oatman, Jr.

  1. When upon life’s billows you are tempest-tossed,
    When you are discouraged, thinking all is lost,
    Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
    And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.

    • Refrain:
      Count your blessings, name them one by one,
      Count your blessings, see what God has done!
      Count your blessings, name them one by one,
      *Count your many blessings, see what God has done.
      [*And it will surprise you what the Lord has done.]
  2. Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
    Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
    Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
    And you will keep singing as the days go by.
  3. When you look at others with their lands and gold,
    Think that Christ has promised you His wealth untold;
    Count your many blessings—*money cannot buy [*wealth can never buy] Your reward in heaven, nor your home on high.
  4. So, amid the conflict whether great or small,
    Do not be discouraged, God is over all;
    Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
    Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.
