When you think of the manner in which God provided the Israelites with the manna, it seems quite fascinating – Just enough for the day and a warning against keeping the excess for the morrow. God could have decided to give the people of Israel all the manna they might need for the rest of their journey. Or maybe He could have given it at least enough for three days up to a week.
Why did God choose the ‘petty manna flow’ approach?
The fact is God knows the heart of man that, once he gets his needs beyond today, he forgets the source of the blessings and oftentimes esteems the blessing more than the one from whom it all flows. He knows what man can and cannot handle. He loves to stay connected to His own on the daily basis. Even though the almighty God is self-sufficient, he cherishes that relationship and seeks ways of maintaining it. He knows that a man who has no thought of God in him is in danger, so he creates ways to bring His own back on a daily basis.
C. S. Lewis perfectly understands this when he wrote that “relying on God has to begin all over again every day as if nothing had yet been done”. Trusting God is a living activity. It must be kept fresh with constant communication with Him. When He gives you enough while you expected more, understand it that God says I would be here tomorrow to meet your needs again. Just trust Him. He provides what keeps you good enough to trust Him for tomorrow. Live with the faith of the manna experience. Live every day, grateful for His supplies of the day and trusting Him for tomorrow’s needs. Forget not that God is already in tomorrow and you are the only one yet to reach there. His works about your tomorrow are in place and perfectly finished. Have the “manna faith” and keep your trust in God afresh. No dulling!
