he drives out many nations

Deuteronomy 6:24 Yahveh commanded us to follow all these prescriptions and to fear Yahveh our God for our good always and that we may stay alive, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:25 Righteousness will be ours if we are careful to follow every one of these commands in the sight of Yahveh our God, like he has commanded us.’
Deuteronomy 7:1 “When Yahveh your God brings you into the land you are entering to take possession of, and he drives out many nations before you – the Hethites, Girgashites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites, seven nations more numerous and powerful than you—

he drives out many nations

There was not just one nation the Israelites had to contend with. There were seven. Each could have obliterated the people of God. But God was driving out each nation, removing each obstacle.

At some point in your life you will realize that there are far more things that could go wrong than could go right. The odds are against us. Don’t worry. God is allowing it to be that way so he gets credit for our victory.

Lord, the odds are against us, but you have it covered.
