LACK NOTHING IN THE WILDERNESS


God’s people lacked “nothing” in the wilderness because God was with them: “Indeed, your God יהוה has blessed you in all your undertakings. [God] has watched over your wanderings through this great wilderness; your God יהוה has been with you these past forty years: you have LACKED NOTHING” (Deuteronomy 2:7 The Contemporary Torah, JPS, 2006).

 

The Jewish Sage Rashi questions the phraseFor the Eternal thy G-d hath blessed thee in all the work of thy hand,” since their blessings were heavenly blessings and they did nothing with their hands that it be blessed! Rashi says perhaps the expression in all the work of thy hand” alludes to the sheep and herds which they brought out from Egypt (Exo. 12:32). Ramban adds that they also had riches, herds, and acquisitions from the spoils of the Egyptians and the spoils of Amalek. Moreover, the Eternal One “hath known thy walking through this vast wilderness” and He supplied you there with all your needs — the manna, the quails, and the waters of the well — so that “you have lacked nothing.”

 

Genuine believers will all go through wilderness experiences to test us and humble us, so that we can know what’s in our hearts. The wilderness is a place of supernatural sustenance where the Lord is with you. He knows all the 5 Ws – who, what, where, why, when – and the 1 H – how – we walk through our trials and tribulations in our God ordained wilderness.

 

This is when we can receive the golden encouragement of “it is written”: “But He knows the way I take; when He has tries me, I shall come forth as gold. My foot has held fast to His path; I have kept His way and not turned aside. I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more then my necessary food” (Job 23:10-12).

 

Give em heaven!!!
