Daily Bread & an Omelette Wrap

Exodus 16:21 (erv)

Every morning the people gathered as much food as they could eat, but by noon the food melted and was gone.

This is one of my favorite stories in the Bible. Incase you’re not familiar with it, let’s walk through it really quickly. The Israelites were living as slaves in Egypt before God rescued them. You’ve probably heard about some of the incredible acts that God performed in the process of their rescue; the boils, the locusts, and the parting of the Red Sea.

Finally, the Israelites are free from Pharaoh and they’re on their way to the Promised Land. But it’s a long journey. Ultimately, it should have taken them 40 days, but instead, it took them 40 years. Needless to say, they were hungry. HANGRY.

They complained to Moses and to God, and He provided for them. But with one caveat; none of the food that He gave them could be saved for the next day. If you’re a little bit extra like me, you’re probably thinking, “That’s great news! Fresh food every day! Who even likes leftovers anyway?” But, the Israelites had been hungry, and they were scared, and most importantly, they weren’t sure that they could actually trust God. And God was asking them to do the one thing that displayed complete dependence on Him; wait for and rely on His gift of food every morning.

As you can probably imagine, this whole “trust thing” didn’t go well for everyone. Some people did try to save their food, and they woke up to moldy, worm-infested bread. If you’re reading this story and wondering why they struggled to trust God since He had just brought them out of captivity, fought their battle for them, and provided their food to sustain their lives, you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be.

It’s easy to look at the lives of others and wonder how in the world they wouldn’t trust God, after all that He’s done for them. But it’s not so easy when it comes to your own life, is it? When I read this story, I imagine being one of the Israelites that got up every morning filled with gratitude, and smiled at God as he rained down fresh bread. But I know very well that I would be the girl with the smelly tent, with hidden, moldy bread in between my pillowcase and under my bed.

We all struggle to trust that God will continue to provide, even though His track record is flawless and His character gives us no reason to think otherwise. Have you ever had a job that you did really well? You proved yourself to be trustworthy time and time again, yet your boss still micromanaged you, talked down to you, and treated you like it was your first day? Frustrating, isn’t it? It even feels hurtful and degrading. Imagine how God must feel when we lack trust in Him; He’s perfect, never once been wrong or acted selfishly. He’s provided and given us everything, yet we continue to try to micromanage him.

But, what we know about God is that His love for us isn’t determined by our lack of trust. And instead of becoming frustrated by our lack of faith, He puts us in a position to learn and experience that trust we’re lacking. By providing what we need daily, He teaches us that He will continue to show up. He’s not leaving us in the dark or with minimal supplies to be cruel, He’s doing it to help us grow. We’re learning dependence on God.

Write

Where do you struggle with allowing and trusting God to provide for you daily? What areas of your life cause you to “stock up” instead of recognizing your dependence on Him?

Pray

For complete trust in God’s daily provisions being exactly enough, and never too much.

Tips & Tools

Because you want your eggs to be thin, almost like a crepe, you want to use a larger skillet than you would typically use for an omelette. I used an 11 inch skillet and it worked perfectly (see details below).
