Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

February 26 - Morning

"He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord."

- Deuteronomy 8:3

Sunset on the Sea of Galilee; Click to go to next devotion  

The Israelites had been taken to the border of Canaan forty years before, but they did not trust God. Instead they trusted in themselves and concluded that they could not take the land. Because of their lack of faith they trusted in themselves and not in God. The Lord sent the people into the wilderness for forty years to teach them these two things:

  1. Do not trust in yourself
  2. Trust in the Lord

In the wilderness did not have provisions for Israel to support themselves, but instead they were forced to rely on God.

Moses tells the second generation that had grown up in the wilderness that the Lord “humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna.” After having been assigned to a life in the wilderness with no food, and often, no water, the people learned their frailness and their human weakness. But, because God provided manna and the many other provisions for them during this forty-year period the people also learned to trust the Lord.

Moses was speaking to a generation of Israelites who had learned to rely on God and not on their own ability.  They would demonstrate this as a nation when they crossed the Jordan and conquered the Promised Land.

Lack of faith often means confidence in self, instead of confidence in the Lord. Likewise, great faith also means realizing your limitations as a human.

Jesus subjected himself to forty-days of fasting in the wilderness to learn this same principle – that we do not live on our natural ability or our natural provisions alone, but we live by God’s power that defends and accomplishes his every Word.

  Christian Quote from Church History

"Satan knows that if allowed to grow to fruition the Word of God will produce a hundred fold in the believer's life."

Something to Ponder??

The Ascension of Christ is recorded in Acts s1:9-11. The word ascension refers to “going up” or “rising.” Jesus’ “ascension” is unique because Jesus rose into the clouds (likely clouds of God’s glory, not atmospheric clouds) to enter heaven and be seated as the head of cosmic authority in the heavenlies. Jesus is seated at God’s right hand as King, but also as the great High Priest in the heavenly sanctuary where the King/Priest also intercedes for us as our High Priest who speaks to God on our behalf. Jesus’ ascension is a critical point in the ministry of Jesus and in the history of our redemption. (Luke 24:50-53; Romans 8:34; Rom. 14:9-10; Ephesians 4:7-8;
Hebrews 9:23-28)

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information

Lamad (Hb) – Teach (Eng) – lamad is the Hebrew word meaning both “to teach” and “to learn.” Lamad refers to both cause of learning and the learning process itself.
In Deuteronomy 4:1 it means “teach” and “learning” in 5:1.


In 2 Timothy 4:14-15, Paul wrote to Timothy in Ephesus to warn him of Alexander the Coppersmith who had opposed Paul’s teaching and did a great deal of harm to him in Ephesus. An inscription from Ephesus refers to the workplace of “Diogenes the Coppersmith (charkomatas).”

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I consider things too hard or too improbable because I trust in myself instead of the Lord?
I will work diligently and face reality, but I will also trust God's help, guidance and power.

The dome of the Rotunda over the tomb of Christ. This is the inside of the larger grey dome of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Constantine’s spectacular rotunda with its large dome covering the tomb of Christ was intended to declare Christ’s victory and reign. Eusebius, the church historian from the days of Constantine, quoted Constantine as ordering a rotunda built for Christ that was “of a magnificence worthy of his wealth and of his crown.
