The LORD Is My Provider

The Israelites grumbled against the LORD when the conditions worsened, but He provided food for them still. God’s provision is as constant as His character is reliable.

Sermon Notes


  • The Israelites would have rather been plump and oppressed than hungry and free (16:1-3).
  • Instead of punishing them for their complaints, God rained down what they needed (16:4-12).
  • God proved to be their Provider for daily bread and then some (16:13-20).
  • God taught the Israelites about personal responsibility and God’s consistency (16:21-30).
  • God wanted them to remember how He faithfully cared for them through years of instability (16:31-36).



  • Ask God for what you need rather than complaining about what you don’t have.
  • Take what God provides and handle it the way He commands.
  • Trust God for seven days of provision based on six days of work.
  • Make it a habit to thank God specifically for how He provides abundantly.
