God provided Israel with Manna for 40 years:
- He fed their physical need in a place that could not sustain them;
- He fed their spiritual needs to remind Israel that He sustained them;
- He fed them to encourage dependence on Him and contentment with Him.
When the Manna stopped, God didn’t change, He merely changed the way He provided for Israel. Instead of Manna every day, now Israel had a land flowing with milk and honey. The Promised Land was just a new place for Israel to be dependent on, sustained by, encouraged by, and content with God.
