with us through it all

Deuteronomy 31:4-6 (JDV)

Deuteronomy 31:4 Yahveh will do to them just what he did to Sihon and Og, the kings of the Amorites, and their land when he exterminated them.
Deuteronomy 31:5 Yahveh will give them over to your face, and you must do to them exactly as I have commanded you.
Deuteronomy 31:6 Be strong and tough; don’t be afraid or terrified of their faces. You see, Yahveh your God is the one who will go with you; he will not leave you or abandon you.”

with us through it all

The mission of the Israelites required that they occupy the lands that God had given them, and God was judging the present occupants of those lands for their sins. But that did not mean that taking over the lands would be a cake walk. Fulfilling their mission was going to be a daunting task, and the Israelites had to be strong and tough, and not give in to fear.

Our mission under the covenant with Christ is not to occupy a land, but to spread the gospel to every land. The opposition we face will often be just as determined as those pagan nations were. So, we also must be strong and tough, and not give in to fear. We also have the assurance that Jesus will be with us through it all, and not leave or abandon us.

Thank you, Lord, that you are with us through it all.
