When Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt during what we now know as the Exodus, I am sure that most of the two million people or so who began the journey were wondering, “How am I going to be fed?  How am I going to survive in this wilderness?”  Imagine the logistical nightmare—an incalculable quantity of food and water were needed each and every day for them to survive in the desert.  Where would it all come from?  Yet, in this seemingly impossible situation, God provided—He provided manna from heaven.  When the people first saw the manna on the ground, they wondered in amazement saying to each other, “What is it?”, which is exactly what the word manna means in Hebrew.  Though they did not realize it at the time, according to Psalm 78:24-25, they were receiving the food of angels, which sustained them the entire forty years they were in the desert.  Manna was the very best God had to offer, but we know what happened as time passed—the people got used to this miraculous provision, they began to take it for granted, and they even became bored with it, and, of course, the wonder of God’s supernatural provision evaporated.  The Israelites lost sight of the miracle that God was doing in their lives each and every day.

           Each and every day is a miracle from God.  Each day of our lives we walk through a world filled with the wonders and glory of the Lord, but we, too, can become dull and lose the wonder of all that He has done and provided for us, even our very salvation.  Therefore, I want to encourage you to awaken to the daily miracles of life, and to the never ending opportunities the Lord is opening, to pour His love into us, and through us.  As we do, may we always be saying to ourselves, “Wow!  What amazing love is this that has been given to me!”

                                                                  Learning the unforced rhythms of grace,

                                                                   Pastor Mike
