And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon King of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.
Do you ever get tired of experiencing the same problems over and over again? Sometimes life is like that. We will have a moment of victory and then we are faced with the same problem again. What are you to do? Well the same God that gave the victory before is the same God that offers the victory now. You must remember to see each new challenge as another opportunity to experience the power of God.
George Muller was once asked how he learned to trust God for millions of dollars. His reply was, “Five-dollars at a time.” In other words, you learn to trust God more each time you are faced with another situation. So, why should you fear? Notice what the text says: And thou SHALT do unto him as thou DIDST unto the king of the Amorites. The same God that delivered you once will deliver you again. We learn to trust God a little at a time ($5.00 at a time). God has it planned that way for a reason. We are creatures of habit and we learn by repeating things over and over again. A student learns to play an instrument not by sitting down the first time, but by repeated times of practice. That’s how the Christian life of victory works as well. At first trusting God is a hard thing to do, but as you have repeated opportunities to exercise your faith, your ability to trust God becomes stronger.
Yes, sometimes we fail, but those are lessons in faith as well. Nothing happens in our lives without purpose or plan. The God of yesterday’s victory is the God of today’s as well. Fear … not: for I WILL DELIVER. Yes, even if you have seen this enemy before and even if he is bigger than before. No enemy is bigger than your God.
