Deut 9:3 - Me Second!
When the Israelites went into the Promised Land to destroy the people God had already visited that place and done all the hard work. He had already begun to burn them up and subdue them long before the Israelites even stepped foot in their land. God sent His consuming fire into these places and it literally destroyed the inhabitants. What that looked like and how it worked we don't know - all we know is that God went first and the Israelites went second. If God didn't go first then the people wouldn't have been able to destroy the inhabitants of the land. God had to go first.
