When the dew fell on the camp at night, the manna would fall with it. Numbers 11:9
This week I was reminded of what the word Manna means (Thank you Marcia Moston), and it got me to thinking.
First—in case you had forgotten or didn’t know—in ancient Hebrew, Manna means, what is it.
I find it comforting to know that the Israelites didn’t have a clue what it was. Because, truthfully, I find myself hard-pressed to recognize God’s provision when it first appears on the scene.
So many times I’ve prayed for relief or help in a situation, feeling like God had forgotten me. But when I looked back I could see the things He had already put in place to take care of my worries.
So here are the three things I’ve learned about God’s provision:
- God’s provision often appears quietly, with little or no fanfare.
- God’s provision can find us where ever we are—from safe at home to lost in the wilderness.
- God’s provision is exactly what we need, when we need it.
Are you worried and stressed? Don’t despair, God has already put the things in place that you'll need.
