And the mixt multitude that was among them fell a lusting: and the children of Israel also wept again, and said, Who shall give us flesh to eat? We remember the fish, which we did eat in Egypt freely; the cucumbers, and the melons, and the leeks, and the onions, and the garlick: But now our soul is dried away: there is nothing at all, beside this manna, before our eyes. And the manna was as coriander seed, and the colour thereof as the colour of bdellium. And the people went about, and gathered it, and ground it in mills, or beat it in a mortar, and baked it in pans, and made cakes of it: and the taste of it was as the taste of fresh oil. And when the dew fell upon the camp in the night, the manna fell upon it.
Not that long ago I had gotten up early because I couldn’t sleep and I was just sitting on the couch, and it was so quiet and peaceful. It was like a refreshing time. I then got to thinking No wonder people read and pray early in the morning. It is so peaceful and quiet; there is no stress of the day yet. The Early Morning hour can be our refreshing time.
While talking with my sister in law last night on the phone, I was sharing with her the Devotional about the Potter’s Wheel, and I told her I said, Bernice, I am stumped. I don’t have a thought to write down for tomorrow. She said something that was very profound to me. She said the Israelites the Lord made sure they had enough food to make it through the Day. The Lord rained down Manna from Heaven, and they would pick it up in the morning. She told me you were trying to get the Manna tonight. You want it now. You have to wait until Morning. That spoke to me.
There are times where we want God to do things now, and we get so stressed when he doesn’t do things now. Let’s wait on God. God will give us just enough strength to make it through anything. It’s not too little or too much it’s just right. Like the Israelites, The Lord made sure they had enough for that day.
So my Idea if you all want to join in with me. Let’s all get up a little extra early every morning and spend some quiet and peaceful time with our Heavenly Father. It will make our Days less stressed because we will have gotten our food in early and we have enough strength to make it through the Day.
The early morning hours can be refreshing.
