Manna

The believer's comfort is like Israels' manna. It is daily rained, as that was, from heaven. We are told God gave His people manna to 'humble' them (Deut 8:16). Do not suppose it humbled them because it was poor man's food, for it was in fact 'angel's food' (Psalm 78:25). Rather, the manner of dispensing it kept them meek. God held the key to their cupboard.They were forced to wait upon Him and continually acknowledge that He and He alone was the source of their need. God communicates our spiritual comforts to us in much the same way and for the same purpose - to humble us.

Intense Debate Comments

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
