In tough times, it helps to remember when you felt the strong presence of God. It might have been your conversion moment. Or maybe you witnessed a great change in someone else. No matter what, there is a time in every life when the Lord makes himself known to you. Go back to those moments and regain strength.
You may say to yourselves, “These nations are stronger than we are. How can we drive them out?” But do not be afraid of them; remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharaoh and to all Egypt. You saw with your own eyes the great trials, the signs and wonders, the mighty hand and outstretched arm, with which the Lord your God brought you out. The Lord your God will do the same to all the peoples you now fear. Moreover, the Lord your God will send the hornet among them until even the survivors who hide from you have perished. Do not be terrified by them, for the Lord your God, who is among you, is a great and awesome God.
