Word For The Day:
“We Fight A Defeated enemy”
Text: Joshua 2:24
“And they said to Joshua, “Truly the LORD has delivered all the land into our hands, for indeed all the inhabitants of the country are fainthearted because of us.”
The Fact that “We Fight A Defeated enemy,” is on our menu for Breakfast this Morning. I’m sure Joshua was remembering when he, Caleb, and 10 other leaders were sent by Moses to spy out this same land, some forty years earlier. Only two of the 12 spies came back with a “Faith-filled report,” Joshua And Caleb. Perhaps that’s why he only sent two men to spy out Jericho this time. After all, two is the perfect witness. These two men “heard,” the testimony of a local woman, who said that
“.... I know that the LORD has given you the land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you.”(Joshua 2:9).
This report was given to Joshua and must have spread throughout the camp of Warriors like wildfire! Joshua and Israel had Already Won The Fight; for they were going to Fight A Defeated enemy!
Here’s our Take Away Lesson, on this, my fellow Warrior! We need to see clearly this principle, that We Fight A Defeated enemy! Notice that I don’t capitalize the word enemy - it does not deserve a Capital letter - because it is insignificant! Like the devil, I never Capitalize his name because he is insignificant, in the eyes of the Warrior! he is Already Defeated! Oooooh Rah!
The Warrior does not win the fight - we Enforce the Victory our Commander Jesus Christ Already Won at the Cross! Ooooh Rah! Every word of Scripture strikes Terror in satan’s crew of demons! they Must Obey when God Speaks His Word through our Mouth, from our heart of Faith! Listen up Warrior! When you speak the Word of God from your heart of Faith - God Himself is Speaking through you! The devil has no other choice, he must bow down and obey; because he is a defeated enemy! Ooooh Rah!
“For it is written:
“As I live, says the LORD,
Every knee shall bow to Me,
And every tongue shall confess to God.” (Rom.14:11)
Hell trembles in terror when a Faith Filled Warrior speaks the Word of God! This is how we fight our battles Warrior! We are God’s Enforcers; commissioned and empowered to enforce His Victory against a defeated, trembling, and terrorized enemy! Our Father, His Son, and Holy Spirit Himself Crushed our enemy once and for all. We are MORE than Conquerors, because we are Enforcers of Our Commander’s Absolute Victory! Yes, He Conquered so We Could Enforce His Victory. “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.” (Rom.8:17).
Joshua and his Warriors Enforced the Victory that God had Already Won over the Canaanite nations! So also, we will, as God’s Warriors Enforce the Victory that Our Commander Jesus Christ has Already Won at the Cross! We Are His Enforcers and We Fight A Defeated enemy! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
