In Exodus 16:4
(KJV) God told Moses that he would: "rain bread from heaven for you; and
the people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day" Obviously,
this was referring to the manna for physical food that God provided for the
children of Israel. However, this also reminds us that we need the daily spiritual sustenance
that God can provides for us. This verse reminds me of the line in the Lord's
prayer (Matt 6:11) that says: "give us this day our daily bread”; this most certainly refers to our physical and spiritual needs.
that the children of Israel had to go and collect manna each new day. Likewise,
we need to devote the first part of our new day to spending time with God and
getting the manna for our day. Spending time with God first thing will build us
up and prepare us for the day.
one day at a time makes life seem less onerous; no wonder God said in Matthew 6:34:
"Take therefore no thought for the morrow: ........Sufficient unto the day
is the evil thereof". If we just focus on one day at a time, we will be
less likely to worry about what may be looming on the horizon.
yourself each new day that God’s: “compassions fail not. They are new every
morning: great is thy faithfulnes” (Lam 3:22-23) and he: “daily loadeth us with
benefits” (Ps 68:19), and you will be off to a good start.
