And they did eat of the old corn of the land on the morrow after the passover, unleavened cakes, and parched corn in the selfsame day. And the manna ceased on the morrow after they had eaten of the old corn of the land; neither had the children of Israel manna any more; but they did eat of the fruit of the land of Canaan that year.
Joshua 5:11-12 KJV
Suddenly.. They were in a new season. Imagine eating Manna for forty years, then you wake up the following morning and it wasn’t there anymore. Change happened to them. Malcolm Gladwell touches on this kind of sudden change in the Tipping Point. It takes a very flexible person to be able to adjust to change without complaining. A lot of people do not enjoy change, even if its for their benefit. Would you be surprised that some people went out the following day, looking for manna? God had moved ahead. Someone says that, ” Finding ways to accept, flow, and cope can make these transitions a little easier”. Change can be positive or negative. Without it, we do not grow. I’d like to ask Joshua when we meet: how did you cope with the change. Leaders are most affected by changes. They have to adjust to change, and they have to carry others along with the change. It may take a long time, Gods change will come ( 2Pet.3:9 ). Finally, they are in the land of promise, and manna ceased. They didn’t need any refugee meals again, they had to eat the produce of the land. The change you see is not meant to destroy you.. It is meant to to enhance you. Stop binding the devil who took the manna. Check out the produce of the land.
