“For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him; Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves. Every place whereon the soles of your feet shall tread shall be yours: from the wilderness and Lebanon, from the river, the river Euphrates, even unto the uttermost sea shall your coast be. There shall no man be able to stand before you: for the LORD your God shall lay the fear of you and the dread of you upon all the land that ye shall tread upon, as he hath said unto you” (Deuteronomy 11:22-25).
Today’s Morsel: Throughout scripture, God continually encourages His people that He is with them if they obey Him, and that they do not need to fear. Because of Him, others would know that He was with them, and would fear them. Whenever the other nations saw the Ark of the Covenant, which God had given them as a token of His presence, nations feared. Everyone who has been born-again of the water and the spirit has this same token, and should be courageous because He has given us His power, and His presence is always with us. You don’t need to fear as long as you obey Him, because you have you been given the power to tread over your enemies that come against you (Luke 10:19).
Sing: Great and Mighty is the Lord our God, Great and Mighty is He. Great and Mighty is the Lord our God, Great and Mighty is He. Lift up the banner let the anthem ring, praises to our King. Great and Mighty is the Lord our God, Great and Mighty is He.
Thought For Today: Jesus gives us encouraging power.
