Usual Nancy “Don’t Complain”  rhetoric couched in Jewish holiday terms. 

Judas Maccabee and his brothers were continually fighting battles to save Israel and every time they faced armies far larger and stronger than themselves, but their trust was in God. 

Listen to Judas’ confession on one occasion: “When all his followers saw the host coming against them, they said to Judas, ‘How can so few of us fight against so many? Besides, we have had nothing to eat all day, and we are exhausted.’ Judas replied: ‘Many can easily be overpowered by a few; it makes no difference to Heaven to save by many or by few. Victory does not depend on numbers; strength comes from Heaven alone . . . Heaven will crush them before our eyes. You need not be afraid of them'” (1 Maccabees 3:17-21).

I know that you, too, often face dilemmas that loom much bigger than you can handle. Don’t focus on your difficulty. Look to God. He is your Strength. He is your Source. He is your Sufficiency. He will always do what you cannot do. When we try to handle our problems we usually make a mess of the job. Put them in God’s hands for He knows what is best to do.

Victory does not come by intelligence or fleshly strength. It only comes from God. Just as God delivered the Maccabees over and over again as they faced insurmountable armies, so God will deliver you as you trust in Him. Make sure you have the right confession. Don’t confess your problems; confess your trust in God. It’s the way to victory.

    That’s what happened to the missing kids, then? They were kicked out and handed to God?

  • Mel

    Nancy’s starting to belabor the point – well, more than her usual belaboring. The whole “God’s chosen will overcome despite great odds/the deck being stacked against them” is one of the major themes of the entire Bible.

    And if it DOESN’T work, then Nancy can claim it’s because you weren’t REALLY trusting God! It’s a non-falsifiable truth claim.
