In the course of our postings, we’ve touched on matters of divine boundaries. The first was on the 8th of January 2022, where Esau crossed a divine boundary to marry a Hittite wife. This was followed by another on the 22nd of the same month, when Jacob drew a boundary line between himself and Laban. On February 3rd we treated the case of Dinah, who crossed boundaries to see the daughters of Cannan. Today God is specifying boundaries to proof the people whether they will be obedient or not. We described boundaries as stating who we are and who we are not. Then we said it defines expectations and shows respect for others. So boundaries are focused on self control. Here is God providing meals in a desert with a simple boundary: ”Don’t keep it till the following day”. That was a simple act of faith. Every promise has a boundary. There are no free lunches. The boundaries are indicative of the lines of divine protection. Some people did not trust God will bring the food the following day. What a people! Every time we cross divine boundaries, there are consequences. There are boundaries in marriage, at work, relationships, kingdom service and even in playing. Wisdom is the ability to adjust to boundaries and maximize divine blessings.
This is the thing which the Lord hath commanded, Gather of it every man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his tents. And Moses said, Let no man leave of it till the morning. Exodus 16:16, 19 KJV
