“Now the manna was like coriander seed, and its color like the color of bdellium. The people went about and gathered it, ground it on millstones or beat it in the mortar, cooked it in pans, and made cakes of it; and its taste was like the taste of pastry prepared with oil.”
-God provided manner in form of a seed which required further processing so that the Israelites may cook & eat. This also happens to us some times when we pray & God provides for our requests. Some answers may require further processing as God directs us; so that we get the best out of them. Part of these are our skills & gifts which need to be developed for excellence in a particular field & gain success. Others ask for spouses & are given marriage partners who over time become compatible & their weaknesses are converted to strengths as they become one in Christ. Our work also requires patience as we learn & increase in wisdom; & later multiply our revenues. Same applies to salvation where Apostle Paul tells us to work out our own salvation with fear & trembling (Phil 2:12). Salvation is a step by step process where God refines us slowly by slowly like purification of silver through His word so that we may always reflect His image.
We thank You Father & glorify Your holy name for this far You have brought us. We thank You for all You have provided for us that we have not lacked any good thing. We humbly ask You to hear the cry of those who have been displaced by floods, war, disease outbreak, drought & others challenges; & settle them in more secure locations, according to Your mercy Father. Remember Lord the widows, orphans, fatherless, poor, the unmarried, divorced, childless, jobless & all of us in our challenges; that You answer all our prayers. Direct us Father so that we may know & develop our talents, improve in our work, marriages, relationships & salvation, so that Your love may always take precedence in our lives. Receive all the glory, honor & power, Lord now & forever. Amen
