God's Daily Provision

"When you have nothing left but God, you become aware that He is enough." Author Unknown

Exodus 16:11-16 describes how God gave the Israelites quail and manna. Day by day God provided for the needs of His people as they marched through the wilderness. God hasn't changed! He still provides for His people-you and me-day by day. But like the Israelites, we can easily fall into a habit of grumbling and despair, especially when life isn't going smoothly or we don't know what the future holds.

We must make a deliberate choice to turn to God and trust Him for our daily needs. God wants to show us that He is our Lord and our provider, just as He showed the grumbling Israelites. Don't let despair take over your emotions! Instead, with faith, look to God for help and provision for this day. He can be trusted!

Choices to claim this week:
*This week I will choose to turn to prayer instead of despair.
*This week I will choose to trust God to provide for my daily needs.
*This week I will choose to praise God for being my protector & provider!
