The trials that the people faced while wandering through the wilderness were intended to teach them lessons about God. Their garments did not wear out. Their feet did not swell. They ate manna from heaven. This principle is reinforced even in the ways in which the manna was provided Ex. For five days, a single portion was to be gathered by the people and any that was stored overnight would not be edible the next morning.
On the sixth day, the people were to gather enough for two days to prevent them from performing unnecessary work on the Sabbath. All of this points to the importance of trusting the Lord for His faithful provision rather than looking to human efforts or labor.
The Bible consistently teaches the futility of human toil apart from the blessing of God Ps. The trials that the Israelites faced were intended to teach them to depend upon the Lord and to trust Him through every trial, knowing that the Lord disciplines those He loves as a father disciplines his son Deut. Deuteronomy —20 points further to the danger of forgetting the Lord in times of security and prosperity. The dificulties that the Israelites faced while learning to trust the Lord through every trial were impetuses for remembering the Lord in times of prosperity.
The Lord said He was bringing the people out of the wilderness and into a good land flowing with milk and honey. The particular danger highlighted in the text is that the Israelites might look around, see their prosperity, and conclude that they had accomplished all of this by their own abilities. And if you forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you today that you shall surely perish.
Welcome to Daily Bread
Like the nations that the Lord makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God. Among the sins related to forgetting God, idolatry is highlighted. Such forgetfulness leads only to the downfall of the people Ps. In the face of trials, one can be tempted to think that the Lord has forsaken His people, but by remembering the Lord and His purposes as revealed in His Word, one can take heart and see trials as opportunities to trust the Lord rather than causes to doubt His goodness Ex.
Times of sorrow, however, do not represent the only context in which Christians are in danger of forgetting.

The Bible also warns against the danger of forgetting God in times of prosperity, presenting a single solution for two very distinct contexts of temptations faced in the Christian life. But what do Israelites standing at the foot of Sinai have to do with us? In Acts —26, Peter connects this promise to all the prophets who pointed to the work of the Lord Jesus Christ, demonstrating that the finished work of Jesus Christ is the means by which God delivers sinners, ultimately bringing them into perfect fellowship with Himself.
So why remember? Because God never forgets a promise but through Jesus Christ remembers the sins of His people no more Pss. First published in Tabletalk Magazine , an outreach of Ligonier. For permissions, view our Copyright Policy.
