As the Israelites prepare to enter the Promised Land, Moses tells them that God is going to “drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you.” Deut. 3:37.
The Israelites were going to be fighting against enemies with huge armies of men who had built tall walls around their cities. And God was going to give them victory. He was headed into battle with them – there was nothing to fear.
God is saying this same thing to me today –
and to you.
You and I have some big battles coming our way. If we aren’t in the middle of one now, we probably don’t have long to wait. That’s just how it is on this broken planet.
God promises those of us that believe in him that he will go with us and guide us through. In some situations we will see a clear victory when we on the other side of this struggle and other times it’s what we learn and how we grow through the battle that makes us a winner.
But, with God, we always win because we are on the winning side. God, our Father, has already won the war for us. Jesus defeated sin and death for us.
As a believer, I know how this story ends for me. When all of my trials and struggles are over here on earth, I’m going to my perfect ‘forever home’ in heaven.
Happily Ever After.
Thank you, Abba Father.
