“It is not because of your righteousness or the uprightness of your heart that you go in to possess their land, but because of the wickedness of these nations that the LORD your God drives them out from before you, and that He may fulfill the word which the LORD swore to your fathers, to Abraham… “ – DEUTERONOMY 9:5


Our righteousness is but a dirty rag before God (Isa 64:6). Do not think for a moment that God’s goodness towards you is because of something good that you have done. There are two reasons why your adversaries are being driven out from before you. One reason is that you have found favour in God’s sight and thus He grants you grace. The second reason is that God is using you to defeat your enemies as part of His masterplan because those enemies have incurred His wrath.
