The Lord Provides a Way to Keep His Commandments

The Lord knows what we need to live on this earth, but He also wants us to trust Him that we might believe everything He teaches and to do everything He commands. Therefore, when He provided Israel with the manna in the wilderness daily, He did something on the sixth day so that they might still keep the Sabbath on the seventh day, “And it shall be on the sixth day that they shall prepare what they bring in, and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily” (Exodus 16:5).
He did not want them to do any work on the Sabbath, including something as simple as going out and picking up manna from off the ground, but He also knew that they needed to eat.
Friends, if you sincerely desire to do the Lord’s will, He will make sure that you have what you need. He just wants you to trust Him for those things.
