Like Israel, I thirst when the oasis is around the corner because I keep looking to the past (Exodus 15:22-27).
Like Israel, I complain about empty stomach, although my thirst has just been miraculously quenched (Exodus 16:2-3).
Like Israel, I rebel by storing up today’s portion for tomorrow, for I cannot trust that God will again be faithful tomorrow (Exodus 16:19-21).
Like Israel, I remain stubborn by going out to the wilderness to claim what I feel entitled to, even though I deserve nothing (Exodus 16:27).
Like Israel, I do not rest in God since I prefer to rest in assurance of worldly things (Exodus 16:29-30).
BUT, God has placed the manna of His promise in my jar so that like Israel I may be reminded of His grace and mercy throughout my days (Exodus 16:33).
Like Israel, He WILL call me out of wilderness (Exodus 16:35).
Like Israel, He WILL come in haste to rescue me (Psalm 70).
