Winning Battles

Reading in Joshua 6, God makes a promise that Jericho would be delivered into Joshua’s hands (v.2). It seemed impossible since the wall around this old city was tall and thick but with God all battles are won. Like the instructions He gave Joshua, He gives us instructions in winning battles.

Just like in this passage, victory over our enemies starts by having a plan. By accepting God’s plan for us, all we need to do is follow and believe He will provide the power. He will give the upper hand to make what seems impossible possible.

This day with You Lord, we can passionately believe in what we are doing. Just like with the plan you gave Joshua in handing the city of Jericho to him, we are given the plan to win our battles this day. Let nothing hold us up in our work and help us to know that one day at a time the impossible will become possible. Amen.

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
