The Israelites felt like they were on the brink of starvation. The Lord provided for them miraculously. He sent bread from heaven for them to eat. It tasted so good to the Israelite people.

I imagine there was a lot of worshipping going on within the Israelites’ camp when they first tasted the manna.

That lasted about a year.

After days on end of miraculously receiving this food they tired of it. They became unhappy which led to ungratefulness. They decided they’d rather have fish, cucumbers and melons. Just like they’d had in Egypt.

Does this sound familiar?

We pray for God to bless us in our life. He does and we’re happy and grateful for awhile. But then that doesn’t satisfy us any longer and we want what we used to have or something different altogether.

Instead of following every whim of our flesh we need to learn to be content with God’s providence. We can do this by purposely thanking to Him for supplying our every need according to his riches in glory.

Numbers 11:4-9
