Scripture: Deuteronomy 7:17 You may say to yourselves, “These nations are stronger than we are. How can we drive them out?
18 But do not be afraid of them; remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt. (NIV)
Observation: Moses would not be going with them so he was giving final instructions to the Israelites as they were preparing to enter the Promised Land. They would doubt their ability to win the battles that were coming. But if they remembered what God had done they would not doubt HIS ability!
Application: When I doubt my ability, I must remind myself that it is not my ability that I am depending on! I am depending on HIS ability! His ability is more than sufficient for everything coming my way! I must “remember well!” By remembering and rejoicing I refresh my memory! The older I get, the more I have to remember, and the more I have to re-joice. I can “remember well” and walk in faith!
Prayer: Lord, from remembering what I read in the Bible, and remembering my past experiences, I know you are more than capable to handle the challenges coming my way! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
