Deuteronomy 8:5 says, “You should know in your heart that as a man chastens his son, so the LORD your God chastens you.” The LORD will take us from immature babes in Christ to full maturity if we allow Him to do in us what He desires. Philippians 1:6 says, “being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ.”
Chapter 9 is a powerful reminder to remain humble after God does good things in our life. The LORD tells them it doesn’t have anything to do with their righteousness that He is driving out the other nations but because of the wickedness of the other nations and so He can fulfill His word. We must always remember that the good God does in our lives is all because of Jesus Christ.
