Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“God Fights For His People”
Text: Deut. 3:21-22
“And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, ‘Your eyes have seen all that the LORD your God has done to these two kings; so will the LORD do to all the kingdoms through which you pass.
You must not fear them, for the LORD your God Himself fights for you.’”
This Eternal Truth “God Fights For His People,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Oh what great confidence and inspiration rises up in us when we Declare this Truth!
Joshua is ‘reminded’ of what he saw God do to the Kings of Heshbon and Bashan; He Fought For Israel and delivered the kings, the people, and their land, to His People Israel!
Listen up Warrior! God Fights For You. He Alone is responsible for every victory you’ve ever won on the battlefields of life. It is your Commander’s Life and Power Working in you and through you (Phil.2:13), that causes you to want to do what He wants to do - and also Empowers you supernaturally to do the impossible things you can never do with your own ability.
God commands You and I, like Joshua “Do Not Fear Anyone or Anything!” Why? Because He is Far Bigger than anything or anyone, and He Will Fight For You! Fear is a lie from the father of lies, who can never tell the truth - cause he’s a liar (John 8:44). Fear is defined as False Evidence Appears Real - it’s a lie; just ‘smoke and mirrors.’ Fear says its stronger than God and ‘lies against the Truth of God’s Word.’ This is what the giants of Heshbon and Bashan said to Israel. These guys were 12 to 15’ tall, their King had a bed of iron 13 feet long and 6 feet wide!! They were big and ugly like the giants of Doubt, Fear, and Unbelief that we face today; but our Commander is far bigger! He holds their breath in His hand! Oooh Rah!
God made these giants like a ‘bump in the road,’ on the way to Canaan’s giants across the Jordan River. These two kings were for practice and preparation for future battles with giants.
Moses as an experienced Warrior is encouraging Joshua as a young leader to “remember what he saw God do in the past,” When he faces giants in the ‘present,’ and in the ‘future.’ Our Commander is the Same Today as He Was Yesterday, and as He Will Be Tomorrow. Unchanging God Almighty Who Fights For His People! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
