God will cross over ahead

Deuteronomy 9:1 “Listen, Israel: Today you are about to cross the Jordan to go into and take possession from nations greater and stronger than you, with large cities fortified to the sky.
Deuteronomy 9:2 The people are strong and tall, the descendants of the Anakim. You know about them and you have heard it said about them, ‘Who can stand up to the sons of Anak? ‘
Deuteronomy 9:3 But understand that today Yahveh your God will cross over ahead of you as a consuming fire; he will exterminate them and subdue them before you. You will take possession from them and destroy them rapidly, as Yahveh has told you.

God will cross over ahead

God didn’t promise to give the Israelites an easy task, but he did promise to cross over ahead of them. Even though their opponents were formidable, God had already begun wearing them down. He had crossed over and begun visiting them with the plagues and pestilence of Egypt. He had begun a fear campaign within their households.

Lord, thank you for going before us, wherever you send us.
