What God Has Done Is Proof of What He Can Do

Moses rehearsed to the children of Israel all the giants defeated by the Lord (Deuteronomy 2, 3), a sermon reminding the Israelites of what God had done and can do, a sermon meant to encourage them so their faith would be strong as they went forward into the promised land, where there were many enemies. Then Moses said this:

“And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, ‘Your eyes have seen all that the Lord your God has done to these two kings; so will the Lord do to all the kingdoms through which you pass. You must not fear them, for the Lord your God Himself fights for you’” (Deuteronomy 3:21-22). 

We, too, have seen some things done by our almighty God and can proceed to our promises in good faith that what He has promised, He is able to bring! He fought for them, and He will also fight for us.

And, then there is the word begun in verse 24, a word with so much promise and hope: “‘O Lord God, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness and Your mighty hand, for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do anything like Your works and Your mighty deeds?’” (emphasis added).
