DAILY DEVOTIONS
 

  In more than three decades of my Christian life, I have been blest by 2 types of Daily devos' (matter not exceeding 500 words) in universal Christian literature. Not only those Devos' which have a different theme everyday but also the ones which revolve around a certain theme over a period of time, say a fortnight have richly edified me. In fact, both styles have their own inherent advantages. If the former style caters to the varying spiritual needs of a christian from day-to-day, the latter aims 'to ground' a child of God in a certain subject in order he derives the full benefits of the deep insightful study of a certain topic, spread over a fixed span of time.

In my Daily devo page, I have consciously tried to go in for 'a blend of both the styles' whereby within a constant theme, I would be aiming to focus on different facets of it which admittedly is a closer imitation of the 'Constant theme' style than the 'Varying topics' one.

For starters in the first month of January I would be dwelling on the theme of the "Christian Journey", with the material being arranged in a Book-like format under which the pages would be opened ( i,e..displayed on-line) on each succeeding day.

So here's wishing you a happy & an edifying read....

Heavenly Manna



…and he rained down on them manna to eat and gave them the grain of heaven. Man ate of the bread of the angels; he sent them food in abundance. Psalm 78:24-25
 
  Yet another amazing similarity that emerges between the ‘redeemed lot’ of the Old Testament & the New Testament is the God’s provisions for the journey. If the physical tiresomeness & hunger of the ‘on the move’ Jews was satiated by an ethereal food, then spiritual exhaustion of a Christian is always taken care of by the renewing & the re-energizing presence of God’s own Spirit within us (Eph 3:16). No wonder, our bodies are called His temple, even as His Spirit indwells us (I Cor 3:16)! WHAT A PRIVILEGE!

  How often, in my walk with the Lord I had apparently reached, the ‘end of the rope’, when I would receive a timely outpouring of His power on my flagging spirit … to carry on…forward. That would be the experience of every Christian, worth his ‘walking’ salt.
 
  So, let’s learn to draw richly from His inexhaustible source of love & power, as we march forward towards our ‘promised land’ (Col 2:7).
 
  Prayer:

Father, tired, as I am, I often turn to Thee in my exhaustion. Strengthen me in the only way, You can. In Jesus Name.
