Joshua 10:8, “And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear them not: for I have delivered them into thine hand; there shall not a man of them stand before thee.”

This scripture explains that God gave Joshua a promise that He was going to give Israel victory over the opposing armies. 

Conquering the kingdoms that were in opposition to Gibeon, and by extension Joshua and his men, will eventually gift Israel a kingdom of their own and they will one day make Jerusalem the city where God will place His name.

While it is true that the battle is the Lord’s, this does not mean that once we turn it over to the Lord, that we have no responsibility at all.

We need to engage in battle with the Lord.

We need to utilize the resources we have to see a victory come to pass. God will take what we have to offer and will multiply it for His glory.

So many times in our life, the thing that we are up against is not about you or me; it’s about God. The thing you are battling in praying and fighting in the spirit is fighting with the Lord, too.

In every spiritual battle we fight, God desires us to utilize our level of faith, talent, and ability, and then depend on Him for the things that we are not able to achieve on our own.

God will always call us to do something that is far greater than ourselves because He desires all glory and honor. He wants us to know that we would have never been able to accomplish the task at hand without Him.

Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight, Psalm 144:1

 WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. Speak in faith today, “I’m going to see a victory. I will be victorious.”

God will fight for you, but He expects you to fight with Him until there is victory. Don’t give up, you’ve got this.
