God knows what He is doing.

In today’s Lectionary reading, as God is leading the Israelites to their final destination, we read: in Deut. 7:22 “The Lord your God will clear away these nations before you little by little; you will not be able to make a quick end of them, otherwise the wild animals would become too numerous for you.” The Torah reads “else the wild beasts would multiply to your hurt.”.

There is a message here to us who get impatient with God when He does not move things along fast enough to suit us. He does know what He is doing.
