Deuteronomy 9:3 But be assured today that the LORD your God is the one who goes across ahead of you like a devouring fire. He will destroy them; he will subdue them before you. And you will drive them out and annihilate them quickly, as the LORD has promised you.
O almighty LORD, how quickly Israel forgot your promises for in the time of crisis and distress they turned from you in doubt and disbelief. In hindsight it’s easy for me to be critical, yet I confess that I am no different. How quickly I forget your promises, especially in times of crisis and distress! How easy it is to apply your promises to someone else’s life, but how difficult it is to apply them to my own. Forgive me for my weaknesses. Give me a child-like faith that simply trusts in your promises at all times. Amen.
