“Don’t resent the moments simple because they cannot be frozen. Taste them. Savor them. Give thanks for that daily bread. Manna doesn’t keep overnight. More will come in the morning.” – ND Wilson
In the Old Testament, God gave his people bread from heaven. His bread for His people, His provision. And it couldn’t be kept overnight except for the sabbath. Basically, they were to rejoice in the gift, accept His provision and follow His instructions for it.
And that is still what I, one who belongs to Him, am to do today: delight in all the sweet moments, perfect provision, and gracious gifts of today. I should not resent them because they’re fleeting or worry about what will come tomorrow. The gifts I’ve been given today are meant for today and tomorrow’s gifts may be different but they will also be good.
“Rebecca, you are worried and bothered about so many things, but only one thing is necessary.” (Luke 10:41) I want to joyfully collect my manna for the day, spend time with my God, and trust Him and His heart.
He knows me in and out, better than i know myself, and like a good dad, He will give me GOOD things, not just the things I want him to give (Matthew 7:11).
He has given me manna for today and I am thankful for it. More will come tomorrow.
