Manna

Exodus 16:4 Then the Lord said to Moses, "I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions. In the 16th chapter of Exodus, God again shows HIS mercy on the complaining Israelites by providing "bread from heaven" for them. This bread is described as being white like coriander seed and tasting like wafers made with honey. The Hebrew definition of  Manna is "whatness", so in essence, God rained down a sweet "whatness" for the people each day and their only requirement was to gather as much as they needed. Just as it was hard for the Israelites to categorize manna, we often have trouble finding words for God's Grace and Mercy. I am not for certain of its exact definition but I know that it is new every morning and it is sufficient for all of my needs. Just like manna, my only requirement is to take as much of His Grace and Mercy as I need on a given day. Somedays I need a lot and other days, not so much. Recently a co-worker asked me why I come to work so happy each day. I responded by saying what choice do I have. In Exodus 16, God commanded the people to "gather" enough manna, nine times throughout the text! If God said it, I am going to do it and since he said it nine times, I am really going to do it! I choose to gather HIS manna daily because I need it to survive. Without it, there's no hope and no future. I pray that you wake up each day, with a set intention on gathering God's manna! Much Love, Mrs. Misenheimer
