our daily bread


Every day of their journey, God kept on showing his people how well he would look after them, if they would trust him, and obey him. When they were hungry, God made the sky rain food--bread coming down from heaven! "What is it?" they asked each other.

After the Israelites had been brought out of Egypt, they were walking.
 Stomp, stomp, stomp.
Day after day, night after night.
And they got grumpy and whinny. They were tired of walking, of setting up and taking down camp. They were tired of traveling, of extreme weather, of blisters on their sore feet.
      They were like a 4 year olds who haven't had a nap, food, or their blankies.

They finally made their camp; and they were hungry.
  So God sent down manna from heaven every night, and instructed them to take only what they would need for each day. Their were told to take no more, to take no less, than what they would need for that day.

I would have been the whiniest manna hoarder in the camp.

After God had rescued the Israelites from slavery, from cruelty, from abuse.
God brought them to a huge ocean where he made a way.
He lead them through a ocean on firm ground.
God saved them hunger, from thirst, from more then they could handle.
He made a way, when there was no way.  

God, give us today our daily bread. Give us no more, no less than what we need. Teach us to look back on our running from you, and your rescuing of us.
Show me the oceans you have parted,
the paths you are paving for me.
Remind to ask and receive.
Show me how you make a way, when there are no ways.
