Life is full of battles, we are in a battle or just coming out of a battle or getting ready to go back into the battle.why is life a battle, because the devil is busy. He comes to steal, kill and destroy, but God came that we may have life and life abundantly.
God children will be in battles, but we do not have to fight alone. We will not get out of this life without a fight. Sometimes the battle is with others, but most of the time with ourselves. The battle of good and evil.The battle of love thy enemies. The battle of loving someone that does not love you back. Yes we are in a battle. Did you know that the fight is fixed? We have already won, yes it may feel like we have lost, it may look like we have lost, but God said if He is for us who can be against us. That’s why we walk by faith and not by sight. The Israelites were in many battles and as long as they were faithful to God they could not lose, God made a promise to His people. He told Joshua, my servant Moses is dead. Now therefore arise go over to the jordan, you and all this people into the land that I am giving to them. He told Joshua , no man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life, just as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. In other words the fight is fixed. He will not lose. But in chapter 7 Joshua took matters into his own hands. He forgot to talk to God first. He forgot that God was the one winning the battles. The people of Israel broke faith and the anger of the Lord burned against the people of Israel. So because of this, God removed His hand for a moment and Joshua lost this battle king Ai won. God was teaching Joshua a lession, do not not forget were your help come from, do not fotget you can do nothing with out me, but you can do everything with me, so Joshua got 36 of his men killed because he did not listen to God. When we are disobedient to God we not only hurt ourselves but our families as well. But I am so glad that God is a God of another chance and another chance, Joshua made a mistake but God did not hold it against him. In chapter 8 God told Joshua, do not fear and do not be dismayed. Take all the fighting men with you and arise go up to Ai. The same king that you lost to before and this time, because you talk to me first. I have given King Ai to you and his people and his land. God will keep his promise. We are his people and He love us so much that He will fight for us, you know if He died for us, you know that He will fight for us, and know body can beat Jesus. He is bigger and stronger than any of your problems, just call on Him. Romans 8:32 say’s He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things. We have the victory.
