The LORD your God will drive those nations out ahead of you little by little (Deuteronomy 7:22).
We all know that God works in our life in everything. Jesus said to the people what God is doing? Jesus said, God is always at the work (John 5:17). But sometimes when we see few of the things are not working properly in our life as we have expected. When we see the things delaying in our life we get frustrated, but if we really know the word of God, we can understand that the word of God never fails, and it never returns to God without fulfilling the purpose that God sent the word (Isaiah 55:11). But Bible says God works things little by little. Bible says God do the things swiftly (Isaiah 60:22), it tells about the ability of God, but God said I will do things little by little.
Though God is able to transform us instantly, but God do this step by step. As we know that the transformation is the process, it takes time to see the full transformation. Jesus when in this world, he was deliberate in the development of the disciples. He didn’t do anything swiftly. The training process was step by step. Jesus came to the world to grant us the eternal life, as GOD brought Israelites to the Promised Land step by step, the tents were moving step by step. Why this is happening? We are slow learners, this is the main reason God works things in our life slowly, and they are in a process and step by step. When God works slowly in our life step by step, we become very strong in our life. God said what happens, if He drive the enemies of Israelites at a time, the land will become desolate (Exodus 23:29).
Sometimes we see the things get repeated in our life. Because when we are in school we might read some chapters of book again and again, so that we could score high marks from those chapters, likewise, God teaches us few things which makes us strong in those things. Our present life style, habits have not come fortnightly. They cannot be removed fortnightly, but it takes time. But when we obey God and accept His training, then we will surely move forward in spiritual life. Bible says, No discipline is pleasant when we are going through, but after having some pain it produces harvest of righteousness and peace to our life (Hebrews 12:11), that is why Bible says when God is speaking to us, we should not harden our hearts (Hebrews 4:7), this is nothing but a command where God is speaking to us.
GOD BLESS YOU
