“. . . that I may test them . . .” (Exodus 16:4)
This gift of daily manna for the children of Israel also involved a test. They were being asked to restrain their natural tendency to gather as much as was available for that time when no gathering would be possible. God was teaching them to trust Him every day afresh. In the same manner, God often tests us by giving us specific instructions to follow. He wants to know whether we’ll obey Him in faith, or just do things the way we always have. We need to remember that because the Lord has our best in mind, He is always trustworthy.
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
