‘You will know that it was the Lord when He gives you meat to eat in the evening and all the bread you want in the morning.’ [NIV]
In Exodus, God provided all the food that the Israelites needed, they may have eaten the same food every day for forty years, but the fact is that God was in control and He provided in a miraculous way.
We may thank God for the food that we eat every day and pray for those who struggle to find enough food to eat, but Jesus was also concerned about the living food that He has to offer.
‘I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread, he will live forever. This is my flesh which I will give for the life of the world.’ John 6:51 [NIV]
Jesus knows that the only way for us to be truly fed and satisfied is to accept Him in our lives and become united in Him.
How physically hungry are you today? Do you trust that God will provide? How spiritually hungry are you in your life? Do you believe that God is the giver of life through His son, Jesus Christ?
Heavenly Father, thank you that you provide for all my needs and I pray that when I am hungry you will send food to sustain me. Thank you that you sent your Son, Jesus Christ to die for me, so that I may live. Help me today to depend on the spiritual food that you so lovingly give. Amen
