There could be so much to potentially be worried about in these very uncertain times, yet God calls us to choose a better way of living where we choose to trust Him rather than worry. Key things here are

  • To be guarding our hearts (Proverbs 4:23)
  • To know the worry-free life Jesus encouraged us to have (Matthew 6:25-34)

We need to purpose to choose trust over worry

  • The opposite of worrying is trusting
  • Trusting God is also something we need to undertake daily even although this may be counter-cultural (going against how we may have lived or how we were raised)
  • This also goes against the ‘storing up’ way of living we may have known and preferred
  • Trusting God daily is now a way of living that many are finding themselves in – whether it be for provision, security, health or other areas where they once had more of a self-determined certainly.

This way of living is spoken of, encouraged, even exemplified for us in the Bible as a positive and normal thing

  • We walk by faith, not our senses (2 Corinthians 5:7)
  • We are instructed not to worry about tomorrow (Matthew 6:34) ·
  • God gives us daily bread every day (Matthew 6:9-13)

The verses in Exodus 16:2-20 are key to describing and understanding Manna Life

  • Manna Life is about trusting Him daily for what we need
  • There was one rule – No storing up for tomorrow!
  • Some could do it. Others struggled because of fear and unbelief
  • This was a planned season of learning and daily provision

The challenging thought is that God is actually training us for what lies ahead, for days we have not seen or known. In such days trusting in someone beyond ourselves is no longer an option. The safest place to be is in a daily trust walk with God. This is a life where we look to His providence for everything our lives may need, knowing that He always knows what we need.
