Then the Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain bread from heaven for you, and each day the people shall go out and gather enough for that day.”

Exodus 16:4 

God offers the hungry Hebrews in the wilderness manna, bread from heaven, each day for 40 years. It was always a day’s portion; it was always enough for all. The manna never lasted to the next day – so the families couldn’t hoard. They had to trust that each day there would be bread from heaven, and it would be enough. Imagine learning to trust God for daily bread – it might take us 40 years, too!
