I Trust God

However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes. Deuteronomy 20:16

I did not want to comment on this passage because it sounds harsh. It makes God to look callous. Then I think of Isaiah 55 where we are told that God’s thinking is way beyond ours. I know that God was concerned that if some of the locals were allowed to continue to live in that area they would lure the Israelites to worship their gods (this happened). In my life I need to do all that God says, even if I do not understand. For the moment I begin to pick and choose which of God’s commands I will follow, I make myself to be god. I must learn to trust God or choose another. As I consider what God did for me at the cross—I choose to trust him and obey him.
