See, when the children of Israel woke up every morning, there was something on the ground
called, ‘manna.’ You know what God told them? He said,
‘That manna…take it for that day. If you try to take it tomorrow, it’ll spoil.’
See, some of you ain’t heard God in 6 years. Your manna so rotten… You’ve heard me but I can’t
live your life! I mean,
> Are you hearing for YOU???
> Are you hearing for your family?
> Are you hearing for your household...on a daily basis?
I don’t know what you’re supposed to do throughout your day tomorrow. I don’t know who you’re
supposed to meet. I don’t know what connections you’re supposed to have.
You have to hear that YOURSELF!
And that is what I’m trying to teach. That is the relationship I’m trying to cultivate. It only comes
through exchange. An ongoing exchange. I have enough trying to hear God for my house. But I
get my manna for THAT day. And then I walk out my manna that day. That’s why the
‘Take NO thought for tomorrow…what you’ll eat or what you’ll drink for your Father knows
what you have need of even before you ask. Give us THIS day our daily bread. Give us
THIS day our daily bread. Give us this DAY our daily bread.’
The manna was a type of bread. The name for manna is, ‘what is it?’ In other words, when the Israelites
woke up and saw this stuff they said,
‘What is it?’
Manna means, ‘what is it?’ Jesus said,
‘When you pray, pray like this:
Give me today my “what is it?” Give me today’s will.”
I am preaching! I’m getting you powerful. This thing is changing. This thing is turning around. I dare
about a 1,000 people who’ve never done it to get up tomorrow morning and say,
‘Give me TODAY my daily bread. And let me see the manna on the ground. And let me
know what it is. When I’m in a meeting, let me know what it is. When I’m in an interview,
let me know what it is. When my wife is crying, let me know what it is. When my son comes
in the house downcast, let me know what it is. I don’t have to know next Thursday, but
give me THIS day!’
