Trusting in God’s daily provision for your life
July 6, 2011
Then the LORD said to Moses, “Behold, I am about to 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 they will walk in my law or not…” Now the house of Israel called its name manna. It was like coriander seed, white, and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.
Exodus 16:4, 31
A little Israelite boy wakes up one morning and says, “Mama what’s for breakfast?”
“What’s for lunch?”
“What’s for dinner.”
God was with his people in the desert on their way to the Promised Land, and he saw they were without provision. So God performed a miracle. Every day, he gave bread from heaven and laid it on the ground. And every day, they experienced this same miracle.
It was “manna in the morning, manna in the evening, and manna at the suppertime.” And this manna was a gift of God and proof of his provision. But they got tired of it. It was a miracle of God, placed in their lap day-by-day, but they despised the miracle.
Many Christians have that same attitude today, don’t they? They see God’s provision over and over again, yet they become so accustomed to it that they develop a sense of entitlement. And all of a sudden, God’s provision is no longer good enough for them!
Do you give thanks as you should for God’s provision in your life? Are you content with the direction he’s taking you? Or do you maybe think, “God, this is a little over your head. You better let me take over since I know what’s best.”
God is never in over his head. He knows everything you need to do and every blessing you need to do it. So trust in him to provide for you each day and be thankful when he comes through!
GOD KNOWS JUST WHAT YOU NEED. SO HAVE FAITH IN HIS PROVISION FOR YOUR LIFE AND GIVE THANKS FOR HIS BLESSINGS.
