verse 3: He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.
God is in control. This verse in particular feels very important to me today. We go through times and experiences which are painful, uncomfortable, and sometimes nearly unbearable. What is the point? God is still there for us. He is there through all of it, and has nurturing love and wisdom to fill us, if we seek it. I don’t believe God intends for me to suffer, but when I do, he intends for me to seek him out. If I do seek Him out, I believe He answers me. And the answer may be something I have never seen or heard of before, like manna from Heaven!
Father God, May I always look to you first for comfort and direction. May I recognize the manna you send. Amen
