He Is Our Manna

God gave His people bread out of heaven when they were in the wilderness.  This foreshadowed the giving of Jesus from heaven in the wilderness of our wandering from God.  God gave that bread of Jesus’ earthly life, death, and resurrection… and it is still feeding the multitudes.

While on earth, Jesus taught us to pray, “Give us this day our daily bread.”  Manna was a daily provision.  Jesus said that we should not worry about tomorrow.  Today, today, today.  Jesus wants us to reach out to Him and embrace Him daily – embrace Him like the very bread we need to survive.  Even on the night before His crucifixion, a day for which He had been preparing His entire life, He still expressed the need to pray.  Could there be any more profound demonstration of the need for daily bread?  If this is what He required, how much more do we need such manna.

This daily bread comes down from heaven like the rain and snow.  If we give Him the time, He will be sure we receive what we need.  Most importantly, that manna will be more of Him.  That’s what we need every day – more of Him.
