Deuteronomy Blog Chapter 7
July 6/12 - Deuteronomy 7:1, NIV
When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations —the Hittites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, seven nations larger and stronger than you—
Notice Who is doing all the work! God brings them out and then God drives out their enemies so they can have the land. It is all a work of God. All the Israelites had to do was stand in faith! Sounds like the Christian life. God does it all. All we have to do is trust Him and follow His instructions. We will see the enemies. They may rush at us to destroy us, they may do all they can to oppose us, but it is not our battle. God is the One Who is in charge. He is the One Who fights on our behalf. Let us stand firm and strong in that knowledge.
