Read Exodus 16:13-20.

MEMORISE: Give us this day our daily bread (Matthew 6:11)

The Israelites had worked with God for a while, yet, little did they know about Him; hence their disobedience occasioned by lack of faith. God's desire is to feed us on daily basis so we will have every reason to wait on Him every other day. But greed, covetousness and faithlessness have been the enemies of man that God is still battling with till today. Our quest to gain the whole world stems out of our desire to live independent of God and so we overworked ourselves, putting undue pressure on others. Believers must be aware that every effort we make outside of God will amount to waste. No wonder the chaos and the cataclysm in the world today. The fool gathers wealth not knowing who will spend it (Ps. 39:6; Eccl. 2:18; Lk. 12:21). Do you take time to ponder on these Words in the Bible? Why did Solomon in all His getting declared "all is vanity and a vexation of the spirit (Eccl. 1:14)? Have you noticed that the same thing that decayed in their barn was still fresh the following morning?

"Then he said to them, "This is what the Lord has said: 'Tomorrow is a Sabbath rest, a holy Sabbath to the Lord. Bake what you will bake today, and boil what you will boil; and lay up for yourselves all that remains, to be kept until morning.'" So they laid it up till morning, as Moses commanded; and it did not stink, nor were there any worms in it" (vv. 23,24). Those things we haste to gather are ever there for us if we would wait for God's time. It is a pity how many Christians have lost their faith and their lives today because they want to get rich quickly. Remember we brought nothing into the world neither are we going to take anything out of it (1 Tm. 6:7). God cares for you. Beware of covetousness.

1. Lord, increase my faith in You alone.
2. Oh Lord, give me the spirit and power of total reliance on You.
3. Father, rebuke and send out the spirit of avariciousness from the rank and file of the church and our nation.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: Psalms 115 - 118.
