God Provides Food and Water for Israel

Our hope is for our kids to know that: God Provides Bread from Heaven

“The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing” 
Psalm 34:10

Read:
(Open the bible and read to your child Exodus 16:1 – 17:7) The people of Israel experienced God save them from the hand of the Egyptians by delivering them out of slavery. They witnessed God part the Red Sea through Moses so they can cross on dry ground. However, they grumbled and complained along the way, and when they became hungry it was no different. As they walked in the desert they complained to Moses, and some even said they wanted to go back to Egypt! They would rather be slaves again! God heard their cries and gave them manna from heaven so that they could eat. They were only to gather enough for the day and not save it for the next. God wanted them to be faithful and trust that he would provide their daily needs.

The Jesus Connection:
Read John 6:31–40.
The manna that God provided for the Israelites in the desert is a picture of Christ, the true spiritual bread from heaven. The Israelites needed to gather bread so they could have some each day. In the same way, we need to draw near to Christ each
day. When we spend time each day reading the Bible and praying to God, we draw spiritual strength and spiritual health from being in his presence. God also provided water in the desert when Moses struck a rock. In 1 Corinthians 10, Paul tells us that this rock was a picture of Christ.
