We may win many victories all at once, and certain problems may be gone almost instantly. Still, sometimes God drives out our enemies “little by little.”
The word “beasts” in Deuteronomy 7:22 speaks of unclean spirits. These are driven out of our lives little by little so we won’t become proud in the achievements of our flesh. Many Christians condemn others when they themselves are failing in the same areas.
I have been through many processes in my life simply because of my age and my experience. But I cannot be critical of someone else who hasn’t had the same time to grow as I have. We are all in a process of growing in grace. “Little by little” means there will be times when we will need to use rebound. We will continue to grow in grace. We won’t quit. We won’t give up. If we fail, we don’t stop and condemn ourselves, but we continue to go forward.
God will honor this type of integrity, and it will become our strength in the honor and dignity of grace.
