Deuteronomy 7:17-21 (ESV)“If you say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I. How can I dispossess them?’ 18 you shall not be afraid of them but you shall remember what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt, 19 the great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm, by which the Lord your God brought you out. So will the Lord your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. 20 Moreover, the Lord your God will send hornets among them, until those who are left and hide themselves from you are destroyed. 21 You shall not be in dread of them, for the Lord your God is in your midst, a great and awesome God.
What a great reminder. The Lord our God is in our midst. What He did in the past in looking out for us, in watching over us, in ousting our enemies…He continues to do today. The key? Reread v17. It’s what you believe. Your inner talk reveals what you believe or…what you struggle with to believe. In fact, there is something super revealing about this. If you say or think things like… “How can I disposes them”, the scripture implies…”You Can’t”. Friends, we have clearly come to know that “There is No god, Like Our God” don’t then allow doubt to creep in. Keep your focus on the greatness of God. On the victories He previously fought and won for you and move forward in faith believing like Moses believed “that God is in our midst, a great and awesome God”.
