I was having my devotions this morning and got drawn to Deuteronomy 9:1-3. It says:
“Listen, O Israel! Today you are about to cross the Jordan River to take over the land belonging to nationsmuch greater and more powerful than you. They live in cities with walls that reach to the sky! 2 The people are strong and tall—descendants of the famous Anakite giants. You’ve heard the saying, ‘Who can stand up to the Anakites?’ 3 But recognize today that the Lord your God is the one who will cross over ahead of you like a devouring fire to destroy them. He will subdue them so that you will quickly conquer them and drive them out, just as the Lord has promised.”
When I read that passage this morning, I reflected on life and its many SAYINGS. A lot of people have heard different kinds of sayings, “you can never do well in life”, the doctor says, “you have only 3 months to live the cancer is fast spreading”, the teacher says, “you are so dumb, you’ll never get to college”, some parents says, “you are so ugly, who is gonna marry you or bear your kids”…
I don’t care what you have been told that is shaping your life and who you are. If you have Jesus, then the God of impossibilities is on your side and he will devour your enemies, abstract and live alike.
Perhaps, you’ve really heard the saying, “who can stand up to the Anakites?”, RECOGNISE that the Lord God is the one in charge of fighting your battles and he is more than able. I pray for myself and you that we receive our victory today in the name of of JESUS.amen.
