Joshua 4-6, Mark 16
Joshua 5:12 stood out to me today: “And the day after they ate from the produce of the land, the manna ceased. Since there was no more manna for the Israelites, they ate from the crops of the land of Canaan that year.”
God’s provision was just enough, just at the right time. When the produce from Canaan was accessible and enough, the miracle of manna stopped. Not that God stopped working, but He provided in another way. I see manna as being bland and plain, but the produce of Canaan (as known from other passages) makes me think of beautiful, abundant harvests of colorful fruit and vegetables. God is always enough & knows what we need. He provides where it seems impossible. And always provides the very best.
It’s crazy to think that they followed Gods orders silently, especially considering that what they were doing was so out of the norm! I think that itself is a point I need to really hone in on in my life!
I was thinking the same thing. There was power in their silence as they trusted the Lord to work it all out.
Looks like our God has been in the business of moving big, bothersome stones for many many years. lol!
