Exodus – Manna from Heaven – Part 2

Brian and Kevin continue to discuss the Manna from Heaven on today’s episode. God has provided for his people, and lays down a few simple laws for them to follow. Yet just like us, the Israelites struggle to obey. However, our ever-loving God continues to provide and forgive for 40 years.

    I did look up “omer” and it is about 3.5 pounds so, that is a lotta manna!

    What I saw in the provision for the sabbath is that God was trying to train them to trust Him for their provision. It was not a matter of disobedience but trust. They still did not trust God regardless of what unbelievably magnificent things they had seen Him do for them!

    I wonder sometimes if I “see” certain things in the scriptures because I am the “one” they are speaking to! When I was young & raising children I trusted God more than I do in my “old” age. I always knew & trusted that God would provide for our family. Now that I have no others for whom I am responsible, I am sometimes fearful (not good) that there will be nothing left for our “days off”, — if you know what I mean. I have to be reminded that God will provide for me just as He did for my children. I never think of myself as someone for whom God will provide. When all depends on you, you forget that YOU depend on God.

      Oh Mary! I am right there with you. I have much the same perspective. I have not had the privilege of raising children and having that dependence of another human. So my struggle is, “Hey God don’t forget about me. I know I’m just one person and you have many people to provide for, but I’m still here.” It makes me selfish and just like the Israelites I can’t follow his laws. I want to be able to trust wholeheartedly but I just can’t. I’m flawed and sinful and sometimes lack the sight to see what’s right in front of me. My shameful lack of trust makes me think God will forget me because I’m so small and insignificant. I’m learning everyday to let this mistrust go. I have to be here for a reason. God will not forget me.
      Just as Brian and Kevin discussed how for so long the Israelites continue to not be able to follow simple laws yet God says I love you anyway. Wow! How amazing to know that that powerful love is there!
