Each morning the Lord sends hidden manna. It is hidden in His Word. The Israelites went out each morning to gather the manna. “…He that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack…” (Exodus 16:18). God provided just for that day. No matter how much they gathered it was always just enough, never too little, never too much. So it is with the manna hidden in God’s Word. It is just enough for that day. No matter how much you read it is always the right amount, never too little, never too much, just enough to meet your needs for that day. Amy Carmichael wrote, “He told him of the hidden manna prepared for the overcomer. Watch for the hidden manna, He said, it will come in hidden ways.” New each morning we are given a taste of this hidden manna from the Word that we have never tasted before. God sends it, but we must gather it. He sends the perfect amount fresh each day.
Thought For Today: “O taste and see that the LORD is Good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him” (Psalm 34:8).
