Exodus 16:4 - "Then the Lord said to Moses, "Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether or not they will walk in My instruction."
This is the test of whether we will get up first thing every day and seek fresh "manna" from heaven. This fresh daily word from Heaven will help keep us fresh spiritually. When we stop gathering it every day, we will start to grow stale and often start to deteriorate.
But we need more than this to actually grow spiritually. Growth requires more than what is needed to just sustain us. We need to eat fresh manna from God, but we also need the meat of the word. We will not grow unless we are pursuing more and more depth of understanding, and more increase in our vision.
1 Corinthians 2:10 - "For to us God revealed them through the Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, even the depths of God. "
Joshua 1:9 - "Have not I commanded you? Be strong, vigorous, and very courageous. Be not afraid, neither be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
By far the greatest gift ever received by us is the Holy Spirit Himself. Those who discover the value of His presence enter realms of intimacy with God never previously considered possible. Out of this vital relationship arises a ministry of power that formerly was only a dream. The incomprehensible becomes possible because He is with us.
"I will be with you" is a promise made by God to all His servants. It comes when God has required something of us that is humanly impossible.
God doesn't have to try to do supernatural things. He is supernatural. If he is invited to a situation, we should expect nothing but a supernatural invasion.
