Deuteronomy 28:7 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 28:7 “Yahveh will cause the enemies who rise up against you to be defeated before you. They will march out against you from one direction but run away from you in seven directions.

within the contest

The fact that the Israelites will have enemies is a given. God does not promise the absence of adversaries. He promises that he will intervene to give them victory. It is within the contest that the Israelites will learn faith in their God. They will learn to trust that he will keep his promises.

Lord, some of us are within the contest right now. We ask you for victory, not so that we can be self-sufficient, but so that we can give you the glory that you deserve.
