Give us this Day, our Daily Bread!

Good morning worshippers!  Just wanted to chat a minute about day 7 of the devotional, “The First Fruits of My Morning”.  What we want to pull out of our devotional this morning is that God has enough sustaining power in His “bread”, His Word to keep us and fill us as we hunger and thirst after righteousness!  This will also increase our appetite to worship Him like never before.  Hope you have a wonderful day or had a wonderful day depending on when you are reading this article and in case you did not read the devotional, I have copied it below for your enjoyment and study.  Until next time, I love you with the love of Jesus and grace and peace be multiplied unto you!



EXODUS 16:16-18


16This 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.

17And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.

18And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

Good morning!  We are still talking about the word of God on this wonderful morning.  The children of Israel were commanded by God to gather their manna (bread) each morning and they were to gather a certain amount for their nourishment and sustainment.  This was a miracle and they did not appreciate it at first.  Pay attention to verse seven in this chapter:  the people murmured because they were afraid and wanted to go back to Egypt because of the lack of food.  God was angered by the murmuring and provided them the bread from heaven to prove them and teach them a lesson about His power and provision.

Worshippers, what we want to gain from this is that it is a good idea to gather our daily bread in the morning as well.  We can gather just the right amount and God will ensure that it will sustain us! Also, we want to note that Jesus Himself stated in the book of John that He is that bread that came down from Heaven.  The forefathers ate the natural bread and died, but Jesus is our everlasting sustainer and our life.  It is extremely important to eat of His flesh and drink of His blood!  In other words, let us commune with God through our LORD JESUS CHRIST by studying and digesting His Word daily.  This will increase our appetite for worship.
