“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)
Through great miracles, God delivered the Israelites out of Egypt and promised them the land of Canaan. The journey towards Canaan was supposed to be a short journey, but it lasted for forty years. In that forty years, the Israelites were tested in the wilderness. Sadly, out of many who started, only two were able to reach the promised land of Canaan. Many failed in that forty year testing period and thus they missed the most precious chance. Similarly, God delivered us from this sinful world through great miracles in our baptism and He promised us the heavenly Canaan. However, we will not reach the heavenly Canaan right away, because we will be tested till the end. Hence, we must completely submit ourselves to the will of God such that we can withstand the assigned trials. On successful completion, we will be one among the few. Amen!
