Bread Alone

Manna collected daily, Matthew 4:4
They couldn’t plant and harvest, so God supernaturally gave them manna--a delicious, healthy grain.  Manna was not only a proof of God's love, it was also a test of faith. 

But they failed the test...they repeatedly complained and begged for Egyptian slave food.

Lately I’m realizing how often I do the same thing. I’m more apt to be disappointed about something I don't have than enjoy God’s marvelous presence and provision for me. 

“He gave you manna to teach you that you must not depend on bread alone to sustain you, but on everything that the Lord says” (Deuteronomy 8:3; Matthew 4:4)

God's Word is always available to keep me healthy and well-fed spiritually if I’ll quit longing for things I don't have and start "collecting and eating" it daily.

  4. Hi Gail - such a great reminder to appreciate all we have and to be thankful for it, as you say, His provision. My word for this year is content and although I want to be content in whatever state, I also want to be appreciative. God bless and thanks for linking up. Love seeing you there.

    1. Thanks, Tracy, I always appreciate your comments and also your WINSOME WEDNESDAY link up.

  5. So true! I find that when I am not in the Word, I tend to be more of a whiner.

  6. Great reminder, Gail. I'm guilty of this, too.
