Manna is stop

Filed under: by:

Joshua 5:12 And the manna ceased on the Morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.

Canaan "The promised land" is a land filled with milk and honey. As we know that the people of Israel pass through the desert for about 30 years went to that promised land. During the manna as they got their food in the hot desert and barren. During that time they wear shoes and clothes that were not damaged even when used to walk with a long time. God really take care of them and God really gave them something to eat.

But in When they reached the land of Canaan, the food called manna was no longer given by God. The people of Israel no longer saw the manna falling from heaven for them to eat. And the next the nation of Israel must worked hard to glory the land of Canaan which is the promised land.

How ironic isn't it? After suffering through the desert, but the nation of Israel still have worked hard again to glory the land of Canaan. And it is done without food or manna from God.

It seems the problem does not stop and is still ongoing. But as we all know that with the inclusion of God then ultimately the people of Israel and has succeeded in occupying the land of Canaan which is the promised land.

The same with our lives. When we become followers of Jesus Christ and believe in His salvation then we will be guided to get out of the wilderness issue. Desert is so hot. We seem to feel an unbearable heat. we seem to thirst and hunger. But the manna from God is always available to us. Miracles are always with us. But if we grumble we will continue to run around in the desert. While in the wilderness issue, we formed the Lord to be a human being tough and strong. Because we are prepared to be king in the promised land that God had already prepared for us.

But what if the desert has been our past issues? would God still provides manna for us? would God still treat us as being in the wilderness issue?

Of course not. Just as God stopped the manna for the Israelites when they arrived at the promised land. Similarly us

When we finish our desert problems indeed we stepping our foot in the promised land. There may be new jobs for us, maybe there is new hope for our careers, or maybe there is a new opportunity for us to start a new life. So all we must win and we conquered.

Manna which can be a miracles may not happen but God will be our perfectly participation in the promised land. God wants us to not be a child, God wants us to grow spiritually. So God wants us to work and try. And the sincerity of our hearts to try and work that the Lord will make us successful.

Today let us explore our lives. Whether we're in the wilderness issue, or we are stepping to the promised land which the Lord has given to us? So let us continue to pray and work for God to improve our lives.

God bless You
