Have you ever heard the story of God raining down food from heaven? I mean literally, food fell from the sky. Let me tell you what happened.
It was in Exodus 16 where the Israelites found themselves hungry, uncomfortable, irritable, and actually...ungrateful for all that God had done for them. While in the wilderness, they grumbled and complained to Moses, their leader. And Moses prayed to God on their behalf. They were wandering in the wilderness, the desert, on their way to Canaan. Canaan was the land the Lord had promised them. It was a land that was far better than where they had come from. They had been in bondage in Egypt -- enslaved for many years and the Lord performed countless miracles that allowed them to escape their wretched, miserable, hopeless existence. And now they found themselves in the wilderness and they continued to complain and grumble, yet the Lord was still with them. He provided food from heaven for them (called manna), over and over again, which sustained them. Isn't that like the Lord? He will just provide for us, because He loves us that much. Remember, He will never leave us or forsake us.
What are you in need of? What is your need? What are you hungry for? Don't you know that God will provide it for you too? That story of Moses and the Isrealites doesn't just stop there. It's a miracle from God that can also happen in our lives at any time. Whatever you're in need of, no need complaining, no need grumbling, no need for any of that. That may prolong the blessing. All it takes is a humble and grateful attitude of praise and worship, and the Lord will also answer your need when you take your petitions (prayers) to Him. He will provide.
