Then said the Lord unto Moses, behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you and the people shall go out and gather a certain rate everyday, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law or no. And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in and it shall be twice as much as they gather daily.- Exodus 16 : 4 – 5.
These were the instructions God gave to the children of Israel through Moses and Aaron but they refused to take the instructions. They decided to do things in their own way. Anytime we refuse to obey God´s instructions, there is always a price to pay for disobedience, we prolong the manifestation of God´s blessings.
And Moses said, let no man leave of it till the morning. Not withstanding, they hearkened not unto Moses but some of them left it until the morning and it bred worms and stank and Moses was wroth with them. And they gathered it every morning, every man according to his eating and when the sun waxed hot, it melted. And it came to pass that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two omers for one man and all the rulers of the congregation came and told Moses And he said unto them, this is that which the Lord hath said, tomorrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the Lord, bake that which ye will bake today and seethe that ye will seethe and that which remain over lay up for you to be kept until the morning. And they laid it up till the morning as Moses bade and it did not stink neither was there any worm therein – Exodus 16 : 19 – 24.
When the day that God told them to collect double came, no worm, no bad odour neither did it stank.The bible says in 1 Samuel 15 : 22b Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice and to hearken than the fat of rams. He is ever ready to help us.
How many instructions has God given to you which you have not followed? Brethren, it is not too late, turn to Him and plead for forgiveness and follow up His instructions because it is not His will for anyone to perish or lost.
PRAYER: O lord, give us the grace to be obedience to Your instructions no matter hoe small it might be and forgive us for our disobedience in the name of Jesus Christ..
