The same God we serve today performed many miracles recorded in the Bible. These accounts are detailed for us that we may know who God is and the miraculous He will do. God does not change. The God you serve today is the same One who rained down bread from heaven to feed the children of Israel.
The Israelites didn’t need food for lack of planning. They brought what they could with them, but they had no idea how long they’d be in the desert. When the food ran out, they complained to Moses, and he asked God about it. God gave them meat in the evening and bread in the morning with the condition that they only take what they need for that day.
He wanted to be their miraculous provider.
When some of the people disobeyed and kept the bread into the next day, it became rotten. God desired for them to trust Him for their needs daily. God faithfully sustained them for 40 years in the desert with meat and bread from heaven, until they reached the Promised Land.
Growing up, my family didn’t have a lot of extras, but the Lord made sure we had what we needed—and sometimes gave us things we wanted.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you (Exodus 16:4 NKJV).
It’s nothing we’ve done to deserve the things He gives. His rich mercy and love compels Him to pour out blessings to us.
“God doesn’t owe us anything—
yet in His grace, He still gives us good things.”
 Malachi 3:6
