God’s commands require Faith
Where did Joshua get the unction and zeal to lead the children of Israel? His boldness and courage came directly from God. Again and again, The Lord encouraged Joshua, “Be strong and courageous.”
Joshua was totally dependent on God. He needed this encouragement daily. He did many great things, including toppling Jericho, to get to the promised land, Canaan.
Trust in God
It seemed ludicrous that the walls of Jericho would fall down by marching round them several times. But these were the instructions God gave. Joshua made sure they were followed. He desires “truth in the inward parts”(Psalm 51:6).
We must follow God’s instructions to be successful in any battle, regardless of how ridiculous the instructions seem.
The good fight of Faith
You must fight for what you believe in by living in obedience to God’s Word. Christ has given us the power and grace to submit ourselves to the authority of His Word.
Difficulties and dangers
Why does God say, “do not be afraid or dismayed”? Because He doesn’t expect you to face these battles on your own. God is in the, “fight to the end.” The battle belongs The Lord.
Anyone who believes in Christ will face many challenges and struggles through out their life time. It is a badge that every believer must wear. The assured thing is that Christ will be present through it all. Learn to trust in Jesus. He will never fail you or abandon you (Deut.31:6).
Therefore, be strong in The Lord and the power of His Might (Eph.6:10). Endure till the end (Matt.24:18). Fight the good fight of Faith (1Tim.6:12).
