“If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations are greater than I; how can I dispossess them? ’— you shall not be afraid of them, but you shall remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt . . .”
We often feel like the struggles of our flesh are too great to ever overcome. Since we have been fighting the same battles our entire Christian life, it is easy to become discouraged, and even to allow things that should be removed, to remain. Knowing that this would be the case, Moses instructed Israel what to do when they became overwhelmed by the magnitude of the battles they were facing.
“…remember well what the Lord your God did…”
They are instructed to look back at the things God accomplished for them in the past. Notice he writes, “remember well.” It is essential that we have an accurate memory of the power and faithfulness of God. It is important to keep in mind our salvation, our deliverance from sin, and our relationship with God. These were all a result of the supernatural work of God. The God who was able to provide salvation, is the same God who will also provide victory for the daily struggles of the flesh.
Don’t stop fighting, but start looking to the Great Deliverer to provide you with the strength to overcome.
