Then said the LORD unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.
And it came to pass, that at even the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning the dew lay round about the host. And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.
This is the thing which the LORD hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents. And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
Enough for Today
God liberated his children from slavery and created a path through the sea. He gave them a cloud to follow by day and a fire to see at night. And he gave them food. He met their most basic need: He filled their bellies.
Each morning the manna came. Each evening the quail appeared. “Trust me and I will give you what you need.” The people were told to take just enough for one day. Their needs would be met, one day at a time.
“Just enough for today,” was God’s message. “Let me worry about tomorrow.” The Father wanted the people to trust Him.
Max Lucado And the angels were silent
This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope.
It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his
compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
Trust God for your day…Today
