“You are not going to take possession of their land because of your righteousness or your integrity. Instead, the Lord your God will drive out these nations before you because of their wickedness, in order to keep the promise He swore to your fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
Deuteronomy 9:5 HCSB
As you and I put away the Christmas decor and turn thoughts toward the coming new year and the plans and challenges that lie ahead, it’s important to remember lessons from the manger. Just as God did not give the blessing of the Promised Land to the Israelites because of their righteousness, He didn’t send Jesus into this world as a gift because of our goodness. God became man because mankind needed a Savior to restore our relationship with Him, broken by our own wickedness. For anyone but Sovereign God, this would be an insurmountable task, but He makes a way through His power and creativity.
Are you facing a roadblock in the path He has marked out for you? If it truly is the road HE has for you, He will go before you to prepare, because He is faithful to complete what He starts. But there will likely still be work to do which will test your trust and obedience. Move forward toward your goals with confidence in our big, big God.🚦
