What Is It?

Re: Verse reading–Exodus 15:22-27; 16:1-18 (day four)
Verse 15 – When the sons of Israel saw it, they said to one another, “What is it?” For they did not know what it was.  And Moses said to them, “It is the bread which the Lord has given you to eat.”  The Israelites knew that God was sending food…they would have meat in the evening and bread in the morning.  When they saw it in the morning though, they did not know what it was.  They didn’t recognize God’s provision.  God later promised them a Messiah…one who would come and save them.  For years they waited and anticipated the arrival of their messiah that would deliver Israel from their oppressors.  A baby was born…maybe He was the one…but He had no army and then He was crucified.  Israel saw the Messiah and said, “What is it?”  They didn’t recognize God’s provision.  How often do we miss God’s provision in our lives simply because it doesn’t look like we expect?
