Joshua called the Israelites to make good on their promises to fight for the Lord. In faith they did. We must remember that it was a hard won faith. An entire generation of Israelites, with their bad attitudes and toxic behaviors, had to die first. This should be an example to us in ministry. It only takes a single generation to affect the change necessary to do God’s work. Yet the path of his work always remains steadfast. It is in lack of faith that the old generation died and it is in true faith that the new generation marches. As we take marching orders from on high, do we look to what was done before us? Do we look to how well we are equipped? Do we cower at the giants that lie in wait? No, in all situations, we look to God and we find our strength and victory in his sovereignty and character. It is this we march behind. It is this we place our hope on. And when we rally through troops for victory in this life, it is on this that our hope should be firmly planted.
