An Adequate Feeding of the Daily Manna
Exo 16:21 And they gathered it morning by morning, each one according to his eating; and when the sun became hot, it melted. Matt 4:4 ..."Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out through the mouth of God."
Words of Ministry
[Part 2 of 2]
Hence during the early morning hour of gathering manna, you should learn to mingle prayer with God's Word. You should learn to mingle praise and fellowship with God's Word. If you maintain this practice before God every morning, you will be filled after some time, and God's word will dwell in you richly. Such reading of God's Word, such gathering of manna, is indispensable to us. Many brothers and sisters are weak and unable to take the wilderness journey. We need to ask them, "Have you eaten anything?" They cannot walk because they have not eaten enough. Manna is gathered in the early moring. This is why we need to rise up a little earlier. We will not have any manna if we are late. We need to rise up early in the morning to labor in God's Word. Every believer should do these four things conscientiously before the Lord early in the morning: fellowship with Him, praise Him, read the Bible, and pray to Him. Whether or not a person has done these four things in the morning is manifested in his walk during the day. George Muller confessed that the degree to which he was fed by the Lord in the morning determined his spiritual condition throughout the whole day. Many Christians find themselves weak during the day because their mornings are ill spent.
