Good evening y’all. Today we are in chapter 2 of Deuteronomy.
This chapter met my need today. I have been fighting some battles lately and reading about how God helped the Israelites gave me so much comfort and hope that God is working on my behalf as well. Though it seems to me, that it’s taking longer than I want, but I’m comforted most especially by verse 7 of this chapter. Truly it has been God who has kept me through the battle and not allowed the enemy overcome me.
“For the Lord your God has blessed you in everything you have done. He has watched your every step through this great wilderness. During these forty years, the Lord your God has been with you, and you have lacked nothing.”’ (Deuteronomy 2:7 NLT)
There is no battle too great that God can’t deliver us from. He helped the Israelites to conquer great nations.
“We conquered everything from Aroer to Gilead—from the edge of the Arnon River Valley, and including all the cities in the valley. Not one city was too strong for us, for the Lord our God gave all of them to us”.(Deut 2: 36 TLB)
He even promised to make people terrified of them….
“Beginning today I will make people throughout the earth terrified because of you. When they hear reports about you, they will tremble with dread and fear.’” (Deuteronomy 2:25 NLT)
When God is on your side and you on His side, there is nothing that you both can’t conquer. Mountains suddenly become small. Longstanding issues begin to disappear and give way to the greatness of God. Things begin to work in your favour….
Let’s hold on to God and His promises for us. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. If He did it for the Israelites, He can do it for us as well.
Thanks for joining today. Pls feel free to share your thoughts on the chapter.
Have a blessed evening 🙂
