Deuteronomy 7-8 B

The LORD did impossible things, everyday, for Israel during their Exodus and 40 years in the desert.

  • Manna from Heaven
  • Water from a rock
  • Clothes that don’t wear out
  • Feet that don’t swell
  • Victory over the most powerful nation of the known world

All this was to give them confidence to face the impossible things ahead.

Why is it so hard to remember? Why do I fret about things and not stop to celebrate when they’re worked out? I tend to get busy fretting over the next thing too quickly.

Lately, I feel the LORD speaking impossible-sounding dreams to me. I find myself thinking it could just as easily happen as not happen. God opens doors, shows favor, and I have a work ethic. As I discussed an impossible dream with a friend, I suddenly felt a nudge to stop and think, anything is possible. I am on the cusp of becoming a dual citizen. Numerous impossible things have lined up for me and I’ve worked hard. Why can’t other crazy things happen?

Then I realized, I hadn’t let myself really reflect, thank God, and properly celebrate the aforementioned monuments.

I love how many festivals and holidays God mandated in the Law. As we often say; Remembering His faithfulness is the key to continuing in faithfulness. That has always been the case. This history lesson is to give them courage.

Write out some highlights of your history with the LORD. Is there a major victory you forgot to celebrate? An entanglement you’ve been freed from? Take time to meditate on these things and go to the LORD in thankfulness. What personal holidays could you implicate to remind yourself in the future?
