Bread of Heaven
Exodus 16:4-5

When I think of manna my mind conjures up visions of beautiful brown buns lying all over the ground. The account in Exodus does not conform with my visions at all.

In fact, dear one, consider this: God said He would “rain down bread from heaven”. It was not pre-packaged. Manna showed up after the morning dew. Descriptions vary on a substance that has reportedly never been duplicated. According to Numbers 11:7-9 it was indeed a supernatural provision that evidently appeared as flakes or small seeds similar to coriander seeds. The people had to gather it from the ground, grind it and make it into cakes (or bread) to be eaten.

Note this fact; God provided, but the people had to work to gather and process the food. God tested his people in this manner. They were only able together enough for one day’s supply…no hoarding. Any additional manna would disappear. However, on the sixth day they could gather enough to have on the Sabbath. They were learning to trust God for their daily bread.

God gave Moses instructions to gather 2 quarts of the manna and place it in a sealed container to be placed with the tablets for the remembrance of the people for future generations. Later the manna was put into the Ark of the Covenant (Hebrews 9:4). It was another supernatural event that this manna did not disappear, but was kept as a testimony of God’s provision in the desert.

You and I still need to rely on the “Bread of Heaven” for our provision. As God provided manna in the day of Moses, God provided the “True Bread of Heaven” through Jesus Christ our Lord. (John 6:32-33).

Father, give us this day our Daily Bread. In Jesus Name we thank You.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Wonderful! I could just picture "Big Mac" buns as far as a man could see! Another amazing fact is that as soon as they reached the promised land the manna daily provisions stopped!
