Every Day – Exodus 16:19-20

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Exodus 16:19-20
Then Moses said to them, “No one is to keep any of it until morning.” However, some of them paid no attention to Moses; they kept part of it until morning, but it was full of maggots and began to smell. So Moses was angry with them.

This is the command given regarding the manna that was falling every morning for the Israelites while they were in the desert. Have you ever wondered what the lesson was for them, and even us, in this command? Well, I can only give you my thoughts on this, but I really believe this is to let us know we are to rely on YHWH anew every day. Yet, not just for our physical needs but also for our spiritual learning.

Remember, the mana was called the “Bread from Heaven.” How often do we read the scriptures everyday? This is not meant to be a condemning question. It really isn’t. However, how many times have we tried to make yesterdays time in the word last for today or even tomorrow or the next? Take time in His word everyday.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
