“Little by little I will drive them out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land.”/Exodus 23:30
This is one of those scripture that when things in life are slow moving, it comes to my mind. I thought it read … Little by little I would possess the land. But that is not correct. Read it again, because I have been known to misquote it. However, I think I probably relate more to the real text.
The Lord has to drive out the enemy … While I work on gaining my strength. There are little things we can and must do to work our physical and spiritual muscles, while we leave the enemy in the hands of Jesus Christ, where he belongs. We can – start small, stretch some each day, keep moving, take care of our physical and spiritual wellness, and rest when needed.
Christ is not only able to drive the enemy away, since His battle on the Cross, victory is a sure thing!
We may have battles that we face, but Jesus wins. We can stretch our muscles … And He will start clearing out a place for us, and we gain access to possess land. It’s a win – win! It may take a little while, but that’s okay. As long as I know who is fighting with me and for me!
