“And when the layer of dew had gone up, behold, there was a small round thing on the surface of the wilderness, small as the hoarfrost on the earth. And when the sons of Israel saw it, they said one to another, what is that? And Moses said ‘this is the bread that the LORD has given you to eat” (Exodus 16:14-15)
Sometimes, when you wake up, before the sun is up, if you look outside, on the ground, on the leaves and flowers, you’d notice little drops of moisture/water resting gently. Where did it come from? How come it didn’t seem to make any sound of its coming? It’s called ‘morning dew’- gentle, fresh, widespread, beneficial to the growth of living things. Without our permission, it falls. By instruction from above, it distills.
In the wilderness, where you least expect, God showed up for the Israelites and manna flowed, bringing strength and energy for the journey ahead.
My prayer for you today is “May God give you of the dew of heaven, and the fatness of the earth, and plenty of grain and wine” (Gen 27:28)
