When the Isrealites were getting ready to take the land God had promised them, Moses told them to be careful to stay close to following God. They were God’s special people. It was very important that they trust God.
God cared for the Israelites like He cares for Christians today~
1)He humbled them and tested their character
2)He provided food in a unique way when they were traveling to the Promised land
3)Their clothes didn’t wear out for forty years while headed to the Promised Land
4)He disciplined them for their own good
“Be careful to obey all the commands I am giving you today. Then you will live and multiply, and you will enter and occupy the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors. 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. 3 Yes, he humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. 4 For all these forty years your clothes didn’t wear out, and your feet didn’t blister or swell. 5 Think about it: Just as a parent disciplines a child, the Lord your God disciplines you for your own good.
