God Provides for His People

Bible Base – Exodus 16

God gives His people what they need

it’s a month after God’s people have been set free from Egypt and walked through the Red Sea, they are camping in the desert, and they are moaning BIG TIME!

image

Majorly grumpy, complaining at God because they had no food to eat, as if the God who sends plagues and splits seas can’t sort snacks !?

They don’t come to God asking for help, they kick off at Moses saying they wished they were back in Egypt! ¬†SOOoooo ungrateful!

What does God do?

Zap them like they deserve?

image

No he sends them donuts for breakfast, and chicken drumsticks for tea, (near enough) it’s an as much as you can eat buffet laid on each and every day!

But they have to learn to trust God every day for just that day by obeying him, they only take what they need each day for that day.

Obeying the instructions so we can….

Trade in the right amount for donuts!

Thinking about God’s care for us, how He provides for us each day

image

He fills our “plates” with good things..

image

image

He gives us so much, it’s even bursting off the sides!

image

image

God’s care is over and above us, more than we understand

image

God is good, He Cares, He gives us what we need and yet do not deserve each day!

This term we are going to look across the Bible at God’s care for His people in the Old Testament, how Jesus shows the same care in the gospels, and how Jesus’ followers reflect the same care in the early church.
