MANNA – divinely supplied spiritual nourishment; any sudden or unexpected help, advantage, or aid to success
According to the Bible, manna was like wafers made with honey. Just as God provided manna to the Israelites to save them from starvation, He has provided Jesus Christ for the salvation of our souls. The literal manna temporarily saved the Israelites from physical death. The spiritual manna saves us from eternal death.
“Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die” (John 6:49-50).
Scripture: Psalm 78:24
“And he rained down on them manna to eat and gave them the grain of heaven.”
“Happiness is like manna; it is to be gathered in grains, and enjoyed every day. It will not
keep; it cannot be accumulated; nor have we got to go out of ourselves or into remote
places to gather it, since it has rained down from a Heaven, at our very door.”
— Tryon Edwards
