“So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.”
We all have heard about what the world needs, and as we listen closer we discover that what is proposed is nothing but froth. By that I mean that there is a great deal of puffing and little substance. In the sales world it is an all too common practice.
I fear that in Christian circles it is also far too common a practice. Many individuals and organizations puff up the gospel as if it was not able to sustain itself without them adding something extra. That is tragic!
Moses is reminding his readers that God was the One who sustained them with food that came directly from the hand of God. I guess we might call it the original “angel food cakes.” It was God’s provision for man’s needs!
Today we receive spiritual food from the throne of God’s grace through the Bible. I pray that your own personal Bible is well worn with use. Not only did God feed His people during the exodus from Egypt, He feeds us spiritual food today!
Blessings dear hearts. Draw near to God today, trust Him completely and be a blessing!
