Exodus 16-17

Exodus 16:11-12

I have heard the grumbling of the people of Israel. Say to them, _At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God._ Exodus 16_11-12.png

“And the LORD said to Moses, ‘I have heard the grumbling of the people of Israel. Say to them, “At twilight you shall eat meat, and in the morning you shall be filled with bread. Then you shall know that I am the LORD your God.”‘”

The Israelites complain to Moses that he brought them out of Egypt to die. Moses points out that they are complaining about the Lord without recognizing that He hears them. The Lord responds by providing for their needs once again, giving them a sign that He is their God.

How patient the Lord is with us. We complain so much, and yet He lovingly provides for our needs. How often do we complain about our circumstances without going to the Lord in prayer? We fail to see the root of the problem in the midst of our circumstances: we lack faith.

Lord, help me to stop complaining and to seek You as my Provider. Help me to trust that You have a plan and that I can rely fully on You.
