Reflection on Exodus 16:11-21
The people asked for food and God gave them manna from heaven. “He who had gathered much had no excess, and he who had gathered little had no lack” (16:18).

God rained manna from heaven,
O what a glorious sight!
Satisfied everyone’s hunger to the full,
Filled each longing with delight.

But it would keep only a day at a time,
Grab too much, It’d stink and rot,
Take a little, only what was needed,
And just as God promised, they lacked not.

Want to taste manna from heaven?
See His blessing from on high?
Step in the water, walk boldly in faith,
Trust Him fully, one miracle at a time.

He won’t give us in excess
Lest we forget to lean on Him;
Neither will He give us less
For He knows our frame, He knows our need.

About Me

In the Old Testament in the Bible, there was a man named Jacob who "wrestled with God and man." He wouldn't let God go until God answered his prayers. God admired that and renamed him Israel, "the one who fought or wrestled and prevailed". He fought with man--his inner man--and conquered his own weaknesses. He's my hero. He is what I hope God and man see me to be.
