Gathering the Manna

The Scriptural record of the journey of the children of Israel out of the bondage of Egypt into the freedom of the promised land teaches us many lessons. The journey is fraught with difficulties, but each problem was overcome through Moses' unwavering faith in God's guidance. His steadfast reliance on God's presence and power sends a clarion call of courageous right thinking down through the ages, strengthening our wavering trust and lifting our eyes above the mist of fear and error.

The tender, loving care of the heavenly Father is clearly shown in the daily provision for the children of Israel. All through the forty years of wandering in the desert, Love provided manna for them unfailingly. Can we, children on the journey from sense to Soul, ever doubt our Father will provide for us too? Our Father, divine Love, already knows what we need, and is pouring out upon us the riches of Spirit. When our heart is loving and earnest in its desire for spiritual grace, we shall not look in vain for the heavenly manna, since it is provided for us now, as it was long ago for the Israelites.
