We see in the story of the Exodus God call the people out of slavery in Egypt at. And that’s great. Except for this. In Egypt, while tough and slaves, the people at least had enough food to eat. The people at least has shelter. The people at least knew where the next meal would come from.
They were slaves, but at least they had these things.
Now, they are free. But, they are worried. They are free, but where will their food come from. They are free, but where will their food come from? Where will their provision come from? Where will their needs come from?
Look at what happens in Exodus 16:4-5:
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I am about to rain bread from heaven for you, and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may test them, whether they will walk in my law or not. On the sixth day, when they prepare what they bring in, it will be twice as much as they gather daily.”
The Lord sends them food. He sends them bread from heaven. He sends them what they need. He takes care of them. He gives them what they need.
For that day.
He provides for them. But they have to learn to trust. He gives them enough for that day. He gives them what they need for that day. He takes care of their needs for that day.
He is teaching them to trust. In that day.
Just as He teaches us to trust. In today. God gives us enough for today. He will gives us what we need. We have to trust Him.
And know that He will take care of our tomorrow. He will not leave nor forsake us. He will meet our needs today.
He will give us enough for today.
And He will give us enough for tomorrow. Trust in Him. Have faith in Him. He will take care of you.
He will gives us what we need.
