All These kings and their lands Joshua conquered in one campaign because the Lord, the God of Israel, fought for Israel. Joshua 10:42
Nations go into battles against other nations on a regular basis. The focus is often on how large one army is over the other and how strategic they can be in order to win the battle.
Very rarely does a smaller nation or a less equipped nation go up against a larger, better equipped nation to battle. If they do, most often they will lose the battle in the end.
Joshua led Israel into many battles against other armies across the land and conquered the land because God fought for Israel.
While most people will never fight in a large-scale nation against nation battle, nearly everyone will have individual battles to fight. In those individual battles, very few will be physical fights, but ones of social and mental battles.
Believers will have even greater battles, because the world and Satan do not want them to win. Those battles will often come from multiple angles at the same time, creating a challenge for the believer.
Fighting a battle with multiple fronts alone is extremely difficult. Very seldom can one win a battle on his own, unless it is one on one.
The strength of the believer to win the battle can be found in God and His word. Throughout the Bible there are verses that tell a believer how to live and win the battle. He also has God’s Holy Spirit dwelling in him, giving him supernatural strength and insight to fight the battles.
Above all of this, God is also fighting for the believer. God sends angels to fight back the enemy. He sends confusion among the enemy to thwart their plans. He blinds the enemy so that they cannot see. God gives victory to the believer.
The moment you chose to believe in and follow Jesus, you became an enemy to the world. Satan and the world are set out to destroy you.
God has you on a path to gain victory over the world and sin. Do not rely upon yourself and your own strength, but upon God and His strength. He will fight for you and give you victory over sin, allowing you to tear down strongholds of darkness and sin in your life and in the lives of those around you, conquering the land for God’s glory.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Lord and Savior; that you will see God’s hand fighting for you; that you will see the victory God is giving you over sin and the world; and that God will remove all fear at going into battle against the world.
