Today in my hometown it is raining. When it rains, most people are quick to say it makes them sad, lazy, depressed, and even gloomy. Well it reminds me of how God rained down manna in the Old Testament as well as all the blessings in my life.
Well what is manna? Glad you asked. Webster definition says, ‘’it’s a food that was supplied by a miracle; it’s something needed that is received unexpectedly.” Doesn’t that sound like a blessing? It sure does to me.
In the book of Psalms God rained down manna for the Israelites. This was during their 40 days in the wilderness. They complained and spoke against God. They asked why God couldn’t not provide them with food to eat (Psalms 78:19). This angered God. But God being God, He commanded the skies to open up and heavens doors opened and rained down manna for them to eat (Psalms 78:23-25).
Just like the Israelites we have to cry out to God and ask Him to rain down His blessings in our lives. In Matthew 6:11, His Word tells us that He will give us the food we need daily. God does not want to see us without. He wants to rain down blessings on us daily. God’s Word does not lie! All He ask is that we submit to His Will for your lives and He will rain down blessing from heaven just like manna.
