Piece by Piece

As I read about the people of Israel as they travel to the land God promised them, I come across an interesting passage where God says..."I will not drive them out from before you in one year, lest the land become desolate and the beasts multiply against you. Little by little I will drive them out from before you, until you have increased and possess the land." (Exodus 23:29-30 ESV)

God knew that the people couldn't handle it all at once, so He gives it to them "little by little".

My problem is I want to hurry up and have it all now...
I must realize that God's plan is accomplished piece by piece.
