“Remember the wonders He has done” says Psalm 105 (verse 5) and later on we read, “He spread out a cloud as a covering, and a fire to give light at night. They asked, and He brought them quail; He fed them well with the bread of heaven. He opened the rock, and water gushed out; it flowed like a river in the desert” (vs 39-41).
The cloud and the fire were evidence of God’s presence. He was with His people. The cloud protected the Israelites from the glaring desert sun, and the fire provided light and reassurance. God also provided sustenance for His people and they had more than enough food and water – from the very hand of God.
It’s good to remember the wonders He has done in our individual and collective lives, too, because what we read and see of God in the Scriptures is what we experience with Him now. Through His Spirit and His Word God is present in our lives today. He leads us forward even when it doesn’t feel like it; He protects us; He provides for our needs, and even our desires when they are given to Him.
It is good to remember that we belong to Him and He will never leave us or forsake us. He has a plan and a purpose for us, even in the wilderness.
