Not only does God desire that you live the Promised Land life, but he fights for you so you can. This was the main point of Joshua’s victory speech in Joshua chapters 23 and 24. The Jordan River opened and the Jericho walls fell. The sun stood still, and the enemies scattered. Joshua summarized the victory by saying, “For the LORD has driven from before you great and strong nations. . .no one has been able to stand against you to this day. . .for the LORD your God is He who fights for you.”
Don’t you love that image? I picture the same for you. The enemies of your life—fears, dread, hatred, and hurt—come at you like a legion of hoodlums. Yet rather than run away, you turn and face them. You unsheathe the promise of God’s Word. And He fights for you!
