Joshua 22, 23, 24
Focus Verse: One man of you puts to flight a thousand, since it is the Lord your God who fights for you, just as he promised you. – Joshua 23:10
How was the fledgling nation of Israel able to conquer peoples and lands that were larger and more established than them? How were twelve tribes able to defeat royal kings and entire armies? They were able to do so because they were not dependent on their own strength or might or numbers. They were dependent on God’s power. They did not think that they were fighting alone, but that God was fighting for them.
On your own, you will be able to do some things. But with God on your side, you will be able to do all things – great and mighty things, impossible things.
People will ask: How is this one man or one woman able to do so much?
The answer: It is not you, but the Lord your God who fights for you and works through you and gives you the grace and strength to do great things. It is Him, doing just as He promised.
