Bread from Heaven

Nehemiah 9:15 And gavest them bread from heaven for their hunger, and broughtest forth water for them out of the rock for their thirst, and promisedst them that they should go in to possess the land which thou hadst sworn to give them

God showed the children of Israel that He can satisfy their hunger and thirst without any toil from their side. They did not sow, they did not dig … but they had bread and water …as the rock from which water gushed out, followed them through their years in the wilderness. If God can satisfy physical hunger and thirst which will last only while we are in the flesh, will He not be more eager to satisfy our hunger and thirst for righteousness which will make us fit for eternity. Christ said He is the bread of life, and He that has Christ will never hunger or thirst. These pictures are to give us assurance that God will keep us in Christ till we enter His eternal rest … His heaven. Child of God, be not anxious, you will not fall aside on the way.

Nehemiah reminds them of God’s faithfulness which remains great to His own. Today we can be assured that God will help us and meet our needs according to His riches in glory. Today is a good day to cast all anxiety away. Be at peace with yourself with God and with others because all is well. Do not forget though that there is no peace or rest for the wicked.

Verses for further meditation

Refusing the bread of the governor

Nehemiah 5:14 Moreover from the time that I was appointed to be their governor in the land of Judah, from the twentieth year even unto the two and thirtieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that is, twelve years, I and my brethren have not eaten the bread of the governor.
.

Nehemiah had entitlements that he did not touch. For 12 years he refused to touch this bread. Nehemiah was careful not to enrich himself or take that which did not belong to him. There are many in a hurry to consume and feed on the trappings of office. There are entitlements that you must not touch to remain credible and spiritually strong.

How can I explain this verse except to advise you to put a knife to your throat at the buffet? Note also that Nehemiah’s team were like him – not greedy. His brethren we are told did not also touch these generous allocations. Be careful of gifts and strange entitlements. Go to God and receive confirmation on what you must accept and what you must refuse. Surround yourself with like-minded people …not easily seduced by gains.

Pro_15:27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

 

Verses for further meditation
Isaiah 56:11 ; Proverbs 1: 11-19

Thoughts for Business and the work place
Contentment is a great discipline to be cultivated.

Suggestions for Prayer
Lord, let me be content with your will, purpose and allocations. Amen
