OUR DAILY BREAD 2023 DEVOTIONAL WAS WRITTEN BY OUR DAILY BREAD MINISTRIES
Our Daily Bread Devotional For 24th April 2023
TOPIC: String Too Short to Use
TEXT: I will rain down bread from heaven for you. Exodus 16:4
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE & INSIGHT: Exodus 16:21–30
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 19–20, Luke 18:1–23
When the Israelites fled slavery in Egypt, they left behind a life of hardship. But they soon forgot God’s miraculous hand in their exodus and started complaining about the lack of food.
God wanted them to trust Him. He provided manna for their desert diet, telling Moses, “The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day” (Exodus 16:4). God also instructed them to gather twice as much on the sixth day, because on the Sabbath no manna would fall (vv. 5, 25). Some of the Israelites listened. Some didn’t, with predictable results (vv. 27–28).
In times of plenty and times of desperation, it’s tempting to try to cling, to hoard, in a desperate attempt at control. There’s no need to take everything into our own frantic hands. No need to “save scraps of string”—or to hoard anything at all. Our faith is in God, who has promised, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5).
REFLECT & PRAY:-
In what ways do you sometimes take things into your own hands? How has God proven Himself to be faithful to you in the past?
Father, help me to take You at Your word and to trust You with everything.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and clease me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
