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. Exodus 16:4
I love the Old Testament story of how God fed His people in the wilderness with bread that came down from heaven. It was called manna, a Hebrew word that actually means "what is it?", because the people did not know what it was. Manna was provided faithfully and lovingly by God for forty years. It sustained God's people during their wilderness wanderings (note: the wilderness is the desert).
Without a doubt, manna was a daily miracle. It serves as a vivid picture of Jesus Christ who is "the bread that came down from heaven" (Jn. 6:41). Notice the symbolism:
WHAT ABOUT TODAY?
Are you feasting on your relationship with Jesus? Are you seeking Him early, like the people gathered the manna early in the day? He rewards those who seek Him, so take time TODAY to seek the Lord and call upon His name. He is closer to you than the shirt on your back, and He is waiting for you to look to Him.
