Remember the long way that the Lord your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, in order to humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commandments. He humbled you by letting you hunger, then by feeding you with manna, with which neither you nor your ancestors were acquainted, in order to make you understand that one does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deut 8:1-3


Am I open to wandering in the wilderness if it brings me to humility? Will I submit to God's hand if it means both hunger and manna? Will I cherish humility as I learn to treasure every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord? Help me embrace humility and the training at your hand, Lord!
