Then the Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain bread from heaven for you, and each day the people shall go out and gather enough for that day. In that way I will test them, whether they will follow my instruction or not.
Father God’s testing serves our best interest. His commands are always for our benefit and so He tests us in order to teach us that His way is always best. Always. What He commands is in line with His design and thus works for the eternal good of those who submit to His will. To obey is to choose true life and goodness. To rebel is to bring death into one’s very being. Choose life.
