Moses said, "Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Your clothes did not wear out and your feet did not swell during these forty years" (Deuteronomy 8:2-4).
I walked in this desert earlier this year, and my feet and legs swelled. It was unbelievably hot, and I could not imagine living there for forty years. Yet God supernaturally protected and provided for His people all the years they traveled through this wilderness. They learned that man does not live by bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord, words also spoke by Jesus in Matthew 4:4.
Think About It
God knows all our needs and is willing to provide for us and protect us. We can cast all our cares on Him knowing He cares for us, His children.
Pray About It
O Lord, thank you for protecting us and taking care of our needs. Help us to believe and trust You with everything we care about. Help us to know you as a forever Friend. Amen.
