“And his allowance was a continual allowance given him of the king, a daily rate for every day, all the days of his life.” (II Kings 25: 30)
This describes our own inheritance and expectation. We are given an allowance, a daily bestowing of good, needs met, and love provided, and we will never be without this holy per diem.
The king, our governing God and our very own Father-Mother, is always giving us what is right and necessary, at just the right time and sufficiently. This verse is a reminder of our divine right and should be our grateful expectancy. It is also the most wonderful reason why we can stop fearing forward or judging backward, and begin to simply trust in this moment and see the good unfold.
God fed Moses and his followers with manna. This was the king’s provision for their journey as they sought their promised land. It appeared every morning and it was just right for their sustenance. They could come to expect its blessings and to never be disappointed. As we seek our promised land; as we make our way in what may feel like an uncertain and meandering pathway of human experience, we can rely on each day’s provision to continue.
This gift of goodness is inspiration, guidance, practical needs met in ways foreseen and unforeseen, and an abundant and non-stop Love that God has for us. This outpouring doesn’t need to be hoarded and its continuity can’t be lost. It never runs out. We are safe and sound now. Be still in this moment, trust what you are receiving, and use and share it freely! There is more on the way in our new tomorrow!
