Then the Lord said to Moses, “Look, I’m going to rain down food from heaven for you. Each day the people can go out and pick up as much food as they need for that day. I will test them in this to see whether or not they will follow my instructions.
The Lord was going to provide the complaining Israelites with rain each day. These people were whining and complaining thinking they were going to starve to death. In this verse we see the Lord, providing the food from heaven daily.
He was providing what they need for each day. He tested them to see who would obey his instructions. In some other translations, states willing to live by my instructions.
Sister, what are you complaining or whining about today? Are you trusting the Lord to provide your daily needs? The main digest for today is: Are you passing the Test? Are you willing to the by His instructions?
Deuteronomy 8:2 Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands.
The Lord has led you in your own life journey, just like he led His people through the wilderness for 40 years. Think about your journey and where you are right now. It may not have been 40 years, maybe much more or less. Who is leading you through or has led you through? If you are listening today, it’s safe to say, He still is providing your life today.
God tests us to humble us and prove to Him what is really in our heart. Do you have an obedient heart?
Prove your obedient heart
