In August 2020, residents of Olten, Switzerland, were startled to find that it was snowing chocolate! A malfunction in the ventilation system of the local chocolate factory had caused chocolate particles to be diffused into the air. As a result, a dusting of edible chocolate flakes covered cars and streets and made the whole town smell like a candy store.

When I think of delicious food “magically” falling from the heavens, I can’t help but think of God’s provision for the people of Israel in Exodus. Following their dramatic escape from Egypt, the people faced significant challenges in the desert, especially a scarcity of food and water. And God, moved by the plight of the people, promised to “rain down bread from heaven” (Exodus 16:4). The next morning, a layer of thin flakes appeared on the desert ground. This daily provision, known as manna, continued for the next forty years.

When Jesus came to earth, people began to believe He was sent from God when He miraculously provided bread for a large crowd (John 6:5–14). But Jesus taught that He himself was the “bread of life” (John 6:35), sent to bring not just temporary nourishment but eternal life (v. 51).

For those of us hungry for spiritual nourishment, Jesus extends the offer of unending life with God. May we believe and trust that He came to satisfy those deepest longings.

Welcome to today's encouragement from Our Daily Bread reading titled food from heaven was written by Lisa M. Camera in August 2020 residents of Switzerland were startled to find it was snowing chocolate. A malfunction in the ventilation system of the local chocolate factory had caused chocolate particles to be diffused into the air.

As a result testing of edible chocolate flakes covered cars and streets and made the whole town smelled like a candy store when I think of delicious food magically falling from the heavens, I can't help but think of God's provision for the people of Israel in Exodus. Following their dramatic escape from Egypt, the people face significant challenges in the desert, especially a scarcity of food and water, and God moved by the plight of the people promised to rain down bread from heaven.

The next morning a layer of thin flakes appeared on the desert ground. This daily provision known as Manna continued for the next 40 years. When Jesus came to earth people began to believe he was sent from God when he miraculously provided bread for a large crowd but Jesus taught that he himself was the bread of life sent to bring not just temporary nourishment but eternal life. For those of both hungry for spiritual nourishment.

Jesus extends the offer of an ending life with God. May we believe and trust that he came to satisfy those deepest longings today Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Exodus chapter 16 verses four through five in verses 13 through 18 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 on the sixth day they are to prepare what they bring in, and that is to be twice as much as they gather on the other days, now picking up at verse 13 that evening.

Quail came and covered the camp and in the morning there was a layer of dew around the camp.

When the deer was gone, thin flakes like frost on the ground appeared on the desert floor when the Israelites side. They said to each other what is it, for they did not know what it was.

Moses said to them, it is the bread the Lord has given you to eat. This is what the Lord has commanded. Everyone is to gather as much as they need taken Omar for each person you have in your tent, the Israelites did as they were told some gathered much, some little and when they measured it by the phone number the one who gathered much did not have too much and the one who gathered little did not have too little. Everyone had gathered just as much as they need. Let's pray. Jesus, thank you for being the bread of life and coming to earth to fulfill our need for relationship with you. May we share you with others who hunger and long for the fulfillment only you can give. Thank you, Lord. It's in your name we pray. Amen.
