“44 Thinking he was in their company, they traveled on for a day. Then they began looking for him among their relatives and friends. 45 When they did not find him, they went back to Jerusalem to look for him.” Luke 2:44-45, NIV

 It happens so easily. We get so busy with our battles, our projects, our ministries and 101 other things, that we fail to notice that Jesus is not with us. Jesus’ parents returned to where they had last seen Him, and so also must we. To renew us, God brings us back to our most recent encounter with Him. Back to basics! Yesterday’s anointing will not sustain us in today’s battles. David cried, “I shall be anointed with fresh oil” {Psalm 92:10). God sent manna to His children in the wilderness each day. Jesus taught His disciples to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread” {Matthew 6:11 ). Have you gathered your manna today? Have you eaten your daily bread?

In the world of banking we are told that if you give out more than you take in, you’ll end in bankruptcy. Are you on the verge of burnout and bankruptcy? If so, you need to move from being a Martha to being a Mary and sitting at His feet. Child of God, make sure He’s with you.
