“The whole commandment that I command you today you shall be careful to do, that you may live and multiply, and go in and possess the land that the LORD swore to give to your fathers. And you shall remember the whole way that the LORD your God has led you these forty years in the wilderness, that he might humble you, testing you to know what was in your heart, whether you would keep his commandments or not. And he humbled you and let you hunger and fed you with manna, which you did not know, nor did your fathers know, that he might make you know that man does not live by bread alone, but man lives by every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.

As we start a week focused on the importance of words and the use of our tongues as it relates to our faith, it is good to be reminded that the Word of God is powerful. From speaking the universe into existence to sending His Word into the world to His living and active Word recorded in the pages of Scripture to every promise He has made and kept, the Word of God has proven itself worthy of being the center of our existence. This was the reminder being given to the Israelites as they prepared to enter their Promised Land. It is the same reminder given to us as we prepare to embark each day on a new adventure with Him.
