My Ally--My Father--My God

No one will be able to stand up against you; you will destroy them. Deuteronomy 7:24

Deuteronomy 7 seems to bounce back and forth between telling the Israelites to obey God’s commands for blessing and to destroy the nations around them. The connection is that both are meant to strengthen their relationship with God. Obedience to God’s commands allows you to see that his ways work. As you rely on his ways, you are able to accomplish anything. And why would God have them to destroy the more powerful nations around them? Was it to make them richer? No, it was so God’s people would not begin to think they could follow God and the gods of their neighbors. It was to make sure they remained strong in their following God. I pray that I would not do anything to compromise my relationship with God today. He IS my success.
