I’m joining Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt. Five minutes. No editing. Lots of women. All of us writing on that same word. For the month of October, I will incorporate the word prompts into my series, 31 Days Of Going In Circles.
Today’s word is … New.
In our lives, we pray for change, for something new to happen. Or we want to receive something new. But new can come with its own set of issues as it is something we are unaccustomed to.
I think of the Israelites in the wilderness, crying out for food. God provided for them …
“When the layer of dew lifted, there, on the surface of the wilderness, was a small round substance, as fine as frost on the ground.”Â (Exodus 16: 14, NKJV)
The people didn’t know what it was as they had never seen manna before, no one had. And Moses explained to them …
“This is the bread which the Lord has give you to eat.” (Exodus 16:15, NKJV)
Those times when it seems like we are in a wilderness, going in circles, the Lord is there to provide for us. It may not always look like the familiar as He does bring about the new in our lives. But He knows exactly what we need to nourish our souls.
And as this new, round substance appeared every morning to feed the people, we too, will be fed with something new …
“And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believe in Me shall never thirst.” (John 6:49, NKJV)
He may be doing something new.
