I am a person who finds it special that God speaks to me and humbling to think that God might use me to speak to others.
My victory; His glory!

Scripture:   Deuteronomy 4:37  Because he loved your ancestors and chose their descendants after them, he brought you out of Egypt by his Presence and his great strength, 

38  to drive out before you nations greater and stronger than you and to bring you into their land to give it to you for your inheritance, as it is today. 

Observation:   The Israelites did not escape Egypt; they were “brought out” by the Presence and the strength of God!   God’s plan was to give them a land with people more in numbers and stronger than they were!  By relying on their wisdom and strength, there was no way they could get out of Egypt and there was no way they could get into the Promised land.  The only one getting the glory for their escape and new home land was God!  

Application:     God purposefully gives me assignments that require more wisdom and/or strength than I possess.   If I rely on myself, I will fail.  But when I rely on Him, He succeeds!    He does this so that people will not be able to praise me, but Him!  

Prayer:   Lord,  when I rely on you and carefully follow your directions, I get to enjoy the victory and you get to enjoy the glory!   Amen
