“Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands.”
Deuteronomy 8:2 NIV
An old friend once told me when she would go out in the evening her Dad would caution her, “Remember who you are.“ He hoped that gentle prompt would guide her behavior and choices throughout the evening.
Moses, on the other hand, gave the message, “Remember WHOSE you are.” God sought to humble and test the faith of His rebellious people during their time in the wilderness. While they were completely dependent upon him for all sustenance, they had the choice whether or not to obey.
During your own wilderness seasons do you whine and rebel against the space God has placed you in, or do you bloom where you are planted, looking for each nugget of growth God has for you? It’s your choice.🚦
