Victory is yours....if you really want it!
by Asst. Pastor Willie Handy | October 29, 2012
“Now the Lord said to Joshua: “Do not be afraid, nor be dismayed; take all the people of war with you, and arise, go up to Ai. See, I have given into your hand the king of Ai, his people, his city, and his land." - Joshua 8:1-2
Please note the words, “have given” meaning it is already done by the power of God. In Him, and by His power, we can do all things, because He is doing it.
Joshua, with the help of the LORD conquered and destroyed
You may be asking what does that have to do with us today? Well there is a spiritual application for us. Just like Ai was their enemy, we have enemies that we deal with daily. They are: the world, the devil, and the flesh, the biggest of them all. All these enemies can be defeated, if they are handled according to the word of God.
These verses in Joshua teach us that: we can have victory, if we really want it!
