Deuteronomy 7:22 And will driveout יהוה your Elohim את־ those nations before you little by little. You cannot put an end tothem all at once, because the beasts of the field will become too numerous for you. 23 But יהוה your Elohim will deliver them to you and will destroy them with mighty disastersuntil they are destroyed. 24 And He will deliver their kings into your hand and you will destroy את־ their name from under heaven: no man will be able to stand against you until you have destroyed אתם them. C-MATS
Question: What promise is made to us here? If we obey, then יהוה your Elohim, את will driveout those nations…that is to say, that יהוה through את will drive out those nations…יהוה Father and את Yahusha His Son working together as ONE protecting the obedient covenant children who obey His commandments from their enemies. C-MATS
Question: What is true confidence in יהוה? True confidence is the courage that comes with knowing we are doing what is ethically right. יהוה told the people they need not fear even stronger-looking enemies since they are doing what He asked of them. We can tap into that confidence to accomplish great things.
Question: Do you consider confidence a good trait? Like nearly every trait – it is neutral and only becomes good or bad depending on how we use it. For instance, confidence to stand up for true values is a very good thing, whereas over-confidence that makes us slack off or become conceited is not.
Question: What, if any, relationship do you see between confidence and faith in יהוה? The deeper someone’s faith in יהוה is, the more true confidence he will have. This is because a person with faith knows that יהוה is with him constantly and can help him succeed at whatever he tries to do. Such a person will ask himself what it is that יהוה would most want him to do in every situation and knows that if he doesn’t succeed it simply means יהוה knows it’s ultimately best for him that way.
