Deuteronomy 7:22-23
YHWH your God will drive out those nations before you, little by little. You will not be allowed to eliminate them all at once, or the wild animals will multiply around you. 23 But YHWH your God will deliver them over to you, throwing them into great confusion until they are destroyed.

Or He, Himself, make the wild animals migrate to other places till the Israelites were more numerous?”

While I’m sure there are several good reasons why He wouldn’t do that, I can’t help but wonder how many questions are in our lives that we may not always fully understand.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!
