Every morning for 40 years, God provided the children of Israel with fresh manna that sustained them in the wilderness. They prepared it many different ways and it was good, but it wasn’t permanent provision. Eventually, the manna stopped coming.
“No manna appeared on the day they first ate from the crops of the land, and it was never seen again. So from that time on the Israelites ate from the crops of Canaan.” (Joshua 5:12, NLT)
When Israel finally crossed the Jordan River, God’s provision didn’t stop, it changed. Now in the Promised Land, they grew crops and ate from the fruit of the land.
The fact that God had something much greater in store for Israel’s future is what kept them moving forward. God could have sustained them with manna, but God is a god of increase. He works in seasons, and He always has something better in store for His people.
God provided for them, but they had to plant the crops. Sometimes provision looks like work. God gave Israel the land, but they were still going to have to fight for it. They were still going to have to tend to it. They were still going to have to harvest the fruit from it.
Don’t get stuck in a rut and think that one way is going to last forever. Instead, stay open and be willing to change, make adjustments, make corrections or try something new. If the “manna” stops coming, don’t get upset. Just keep moving forward and be on the lookout for the new provision God has in store for you!
