Daily Trust
“Manna Life”

By Andy Elmes

There could be so much to potentially be worried about in these very uncertain times in which we find ourselves.  Yet God calls us to choose a better way of living where we choose to trust Him, not worry.

  • To be those who are guarding their hearts:  Proverbs 4:23
  • Those who know the worry-free life, Jesus encouraged us to know:  Matthew 6:25-34.


We need to purpose to choose trust over worry

  • The opposite of worrying is trusting.
  • Trusting God is also something that a person has to do on a daily basis.
  • Trusting God daily can be counter-cultural for many people. It goes against how we may have lived, even how we have been raised to live.
  • Trusting God daily goes against the “storing up” way of living we may have known and preferred..
  • Trusting God daily is now a way of living that many are finding themselves in – whether it be for provision, security, health or other areas where they once had more of a self-determined certainly.


This way of living is spoken of, encouraged even exemplified for us in the Bible – as a positive and normal thing


2 Corinthians 5:7 – We walk by faith, not our senses.

Matthew 6:34  – Instructed not to worry about tomorrow.

Matthew 6:9-13 – God gives us every day our daily bread.


Manna Life

Key Verses: Exodus 16:2-20
  • Manna Life is trusting Him daily for what you need for the day.
  • A great picture of “daily trust.”
  • There was one rule – No storing up for tomorrow!
  • Some could do it. Others struggled because of fear and unbelief.
  • This was a planned season of learning and daily provision.


Question: What if God is actually training us for what lies ahead; days we have not seen or known, days were trusting in someone beyond yourself is no longer an option?


The safest place to be is in a daily trust walk with God, a life where you look to His providence for everything your life may need. Knowing that He knows what you need.
