Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Joshua 11 & 12)
“Immanuel, God Is With Us!”
Text: Joshua 11:6
“But the LORD said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid because of them, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel. You shall hamstring their horses and burn their chariots with fire.”
“Immanuel, God Is With Us,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. What Great Confidence this brings for the Warrior to know that His Commander Almighty God is With Them in the Fight! Ooooh Rah!
Twenty-Four kings and their armies from the North, South, East, and West gathered together in one place “as the sand that is on the seashore in multitude, with very many horses and chariots!” Wow! What a sight that must have been. See how the battles have intensified? One king at Jericho, one king at Ai, then five kings, and now twenty-four kings. That’s how our enemy works; escalating the intensity of the attack. Yet our Commander’s Command remains the same: “Don’t be afraid because of them, for tomorrow about this time I will deliver all of them slain before Israel.”
Can you see Joshua’s zeal as he “came against them suddenly at their camp!” Joshua didn’t wait for them to attack him, he went after them. Joshua was on a “war footing mindset!” This is an ”offensive mindset,” not defensive. This is the Warrior’s mindset. We must always be on a “war footing mindset;” because our spiritual enemy is all around us looking for a weak point in our life: “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.” (1Pet.5:8-9).
Listen up Warrior! Every fight is an opportunity for our Commander to display His Awesome Power in our life and through our life. We stand fast in our Faith and Trust in His Word, and the enemy’s forces are shattered. Our Commander “delivers all of them slain,” before His Warriors.” Stand fast in your Faith my fellow Warrior, for your Commander Almighty God is With You in the Fight! And He Will Prevail! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
