Morning Thought: Like Israel in the wilderness, gather manna morning by morning for the day ahead. Use a journal in the same way the Jews used a jar to collect this heaven-sent food. Scripture is the ground where the manna of God’s Word appears. There you will find a continual fresh revelation of Christ, the bread of heaven. Feasting on him will strengthen your spirit and cause you to lose your hunger for the sinful things of this world. If you don’t eat, you won’t be able to resist temptation. But if you do eat, you will find your joy and strength in Christ as you journey the wilderness of this world. “They gathered it [manna] morning by morning, every man as much as he should eat; but when the sun grew hot, it would melt” (Exodus 16:21, NASB).
