Exodus 16:4 Devotion by Stephen Taylor

Exodus 16:4

Then the LORD said to Moses, “I will rain down bread from Heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way, I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions.


As I was reading today and came across this verse, I felt the Holy Spirit say, “God doesn’t ask you to jump through hoops or do some big extravagant thing to show that you will love Him.” Simple obedience and trust are all that God calls for here. He doesn’t tell the Israelites to do anything other than trust Him to provide for them and to listen to what He says.


To me, this is huge because God doesn’t overload them or put too much on their plates. He says, “I will feed you, and I will bless you, and I will also use it to test you and your heart.” My question is this: what bread from Heaven is God wanting to rain down on you but is waiting to see if He can trust you with it? Am I asking for some financial relief but not trusting Him with the 10% that is His anyway? Am I asking Him to give me people to share the Gospel with but not spending daily quiet time alone with Him?


God’s storehouses are overflowing with more than enough blessings for everyone, but are we trustworthy when we revive them? This verse tells me that the blessings come from God, but we have to work and walk in them daily and trust Him completely!!!


Be ready, Be intentional, Be faithful, and TRUST in the Lord completely!!!!


I love you all, God bless, and Glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!
