God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus
Philippians 4:19, NKJV.
When the people of Israel were in the desert on the way to the Promised Land, God gave them manna to eat. That was good. It sustained them for a while, but it wasn’t permanent provision. Eventually, the manna stopped coming. The people had to move forward, and then God gave them quail. They were so excited. That fed them for a while, but it was also temporary.
See, God gave the Israelites temporary provision on the way to the Promised Land where they would have permanent provision. The fact that God had something much greater in store for their future is what kept them moving forward. God could have sustained them with manna or quail, but God is a god of increase. He works in seasons, and He always has something better in store.
Don’t get stuck in a rut and think that one way is going to last forever. Instead, stay open and be willing to change, make adjustments, make corrections or try something new. If the “manna” stops coming, don’t get upset. Just keep moving forward and be on the lookout for the new provision God has in store for you!
"At Christmas when someone asks us what we want, do we not say, ‘you choose,’ knowing full well that his generosity will be greater than our daring?….Why not begin prayer that way, trusting in Him because He knows best. That is why petition is not the essence of prayer: Trust, for one thing, underlies it."
"We ought to begin each day as a new life."
"The hours between 12am and 6am
have a funny habit of making you feel
like you’re either on top of the world,
or under it."
