All of God’s manna comes from heaven; He is the Creator of everything good. All blessings are from the Lord, and yet I find that I oftentimes treat them just as Mother Theresa handles her food. I pick and choose what I will receive, tossing one thing to one side and another to the other side. Rather than trusting that everything the Lord gives me is good, and for my good, I often slowly, laboriously (or quickly in my case!), and deliberately sift through His manna to decide what I will accept and what I will reject. Oftentimes, like with Mother Theresa, I leave a mess on the floor of what I have decided to leave behind.
If Mother Theresa understood every piece of food is a blessing, and if I would trust the Lord and remember everything that comes from Him is good, I would take joy in receiving ALL of His blessings and praising Him for His perfect will.
Jas 1:17 “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
