Exodus 23:28-30; “I will send terror ahead of you to drive out the Hivites, Canaanites, and Hittites. But I will not drive them out in a single year, because the land would become desolate and the wild animals would multiply and threaten you. I will drive them out a little at a time until your population has increased enough to take possession of the land.”(NLT)
God is wise and He is good beyond our human understanding. Resolve to trust Him, trust Him with your life! Here God has a master plan, not only to give the children of Israel the lands of their surrounding nations, but intends to allow these nations remain, to serve an advantageous purpose of maintaining the land for Israel.
Some at that time might think, why not kill them all or drive them all, so that we will have no need to battle, but if God drove them all, the land will become desolate, and wild animals would multiply and threaten or harm the children of Israel.
How do you see God in your life's journey? Do you think He is letting you down? That situation, problem or challenge that is being resolved little by little is to your favor, God is protecting you from what lies ahead. His thoughts for you are thoughts of peace, to bring you good, He loves you so much that He sent Jesus to die for you.
The world may seem to offer a quicker solution, but "The end thereof is destruction" Oh that you can see that He cares for you, He is working all things together for your good.
I encourage you to pray that His will be done instead, in your life. Ask Him anything according to His will and by faith receive. Trust in His unending love for you. He is your Everlasting Father. ..
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your love. I will glory in my situation because I know your plan for me is good and not evil to give me an expected end. I take possession of every promise of God in my life. I am a winner in Christ Jesus. I do not fail in my struggles because God is with me. I am more than conquerors through Jesus Christ! Amen!
