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. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna … to teach you that people do not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.
If you’re in the wilderness, you’re exactly where you should be. The question is: how will you be?
— Deuteronomy 8:2-3
