Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you. And the people shall go out and gather a certain quota every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in My law or not.” Exodus 16:4 NKJV
The familiar story about God raining down Manna every morning for the Israelites to eat has been one of my favorites. I wonder how this angel food tasted, but I especially love the fact that the people who gathered little still had plenty to eat (Ex. 16:18). That encourages me because it illustrates the provision of God to His children.
Our focal verse clearly explains that the manna was a test. Why haven’t I noticed that before? I started considering my many blessings.
Could they be a test? Do I use my health, my finances, my home, and my talents to honor God?
