“Then the Lord said to Moses,”I will rain down bread from heaven for you. The people are to go out each day and gather enough for that day. In this way I will test them and see whether they will follow my instructions.” Exodus 16:4
His provision is provided but he had a million whining people to take care of. He has storehouses of supplies and fed them each day miraculously with bread from heaven and even meat. There were no stores, or crops and the animals they had were required for sacrificing. Everything they needed was up to him. Their clothes and shoes did not wear out. They always had enough.
“The Israelites ate manna forty years, until they came to a land that was settled; they ate manna till they came to the border of Canaan.” Exodus 16:35

If you screw up, and you will, don’t give up. I will still be there. Come running back.

God has proven himself time and time again. Make him Lord today.
