God is Ahead of Us

But be assured today that the Lord your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. Deuteronomy 9:3
The Israelites are on their way to crossing the Jordan River and taking possession of the promised land. They will, however, have to contend with nations that are larger and more powerful than themselves; people are strong and tall (vv. 1-2). God is bringing them to something much bigger than they can handle. It was a test they could only overcome if they put their faith in God.
God’s promises are not challenge-free. We sometimes doubt God and His purposes for us because of these difficulties. Because we live in a broken world, life is not easy. Jesus Christ is our only hope. We can be still and take comfort in the fact that Jesus is with us. God’s promise to us has been fulfilled in Him. All the obstacles we will endure are nothing compared to God’s faithfulness.
Will you choose to declare God’s goodness and faithfulness or doubt God?
Our God is bigger.
