{ Day 129 }

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it. —Revelation 2:17

Jesus Christ loves the world and He loves the church, but there's a special bread He feeds those who love Him in private. There's a divine manna He reserves for those who extravagantly waste themselves in His presence. How do you waste your life on Jesus? Easy. It's no secret. Make the decision in your mind, and your heart will catch up. Get in His presence. Reject sin. Cry out to Him in prayer. Lift your soul to Him in worship. Read and meditate on the Word until your heart is filled with the things that fill God's heart. Utterly abandon yourself to Him, for intimacy with God takes time, and there is no substitute for waiting in His presence. Allow yourself to be broken and spilled out for the priceless One whose body was broken and whose precious life's blood was spilled out for you.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Lord, I hunger for the divine manna You have reserved for those who desire to live in Your presence. Show me how to "waste my life for You." Let me abandon myself to You as you abandoned Your life for my salvation.

We can waste our lives on serving the devil and end up
in a flaming trash heap called hell, or we can waste our
lives and our resources on Jesus.
