Waking up slowly today from being awake for +26 hours past day.
When headed home from work this morning G-d had on my heart meditating the drive, this section about the manna in the desert with the Israelites.
By the end of the day with customers and people I was not chipper.
And because I was focused just on myself at the end of the day, I neglected what I have learned in Mens Bible Study yesterday cultivating others.
As I write this I understand that as cultivating the Living Spirit Jesus Christ in others through His Holy Spirit in me, since I am dead and alive in Christ Jesus.
So with the verses on my heart… I was understanding that I cannot hoard the Holy Spirit for myself, not sharing His Living Spirit Jesus with others, even in my fleshly trials.
Because no matter what if I work say 8 hours or 16 hours or 24 hours, it doesn’t matter, G-d will feed me my needs.
But am I overflowing His blessed Holy Spirit, that is proclaiming His Gospel, to those unaware?
“And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.
And when the children of Israel saw it, they said one to another, It is manna: for they wist not what it was.
And Moses said unto them, This is the bread which the Lord hath given you to eat.
This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents.
And the children of Israel did so, and gathered, some more, some less.
And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.
And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.
Notwithstanding they hearkened not unto Moses; but some of them left of it until the morning, and it bred worms, and stank: and Moses was wroth with them.
And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it melted.
And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man: and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses.
And he said unto them, This is that which the Lord hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the Lord: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.
And they laid it up till the morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any worm therein.
And Moses said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the Lord: to day ye shall not find it in the field.
Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.
And it came to pass, that there went out some of the people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.
And the Lord said unto Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?
See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day the bread of two days; abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.
So the people rested on the seventh day.
And the house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with honey.”
Exodus 16:14-31 KJV
