The Almighty Does Almost Nothing in Human History
Without Rendering Himself Dependent Upon Human Help

Biblical Examples


The sovereign Lord declared:

    Exodus 33:2 I will send an angel before you; and I will drive out the Canaanite, the Amorite, and the Hittite, and the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite

Nevertheless, even the commencement was delayed forty years because of the Israelitesí lack of faith. The miraculous collapse of Jerichoís walls depended upon the Israelites marching around it again and again and again. Then the next step in the divine battle plan was sabotaged because of Achanís sin (Joshua 7). Next, the Lordís plan to annihilate the inhabitants of Gibeon was foiled because Joshua forgot to consult God and mistakenly made a peace treaty that the Almighty then obligated himself to respect forever (Joshua 9:3ff). And the saga of people messing up the sovereign Lordís battle plans continued.
