Hello Everyone!!!
How did Joshua fight the battle? He let God fight the battle for them. As Joshua submitted to the process of brokenness by humbly trusting God鈥檚 wisdom and ways, God allowed him to experience a victorious breakthrough in the war.

God commanded Joshua to be 鈥渟trong and courageous鈥 in fact He said 鈥渂e very strong and courageous! The LORD already brought Israelites out of Egypt, but Joshua must do his part and obey whatever God would ask him to do. Joshua by then had some limitations, for he was no longer young. But God reminded Joshua of His promise to Israel.

Be strong and courageous, because you will lead these people to inherit the land I swore to their ancestors to give them.
- Joshua 1:6-9
New International Version

God will always win whether we let Him fight our battles or not. The question is whether we will experience wins as well by letting Him fight our battles. 鈥 Edric Mendoza

Battle already won! God was just asking Joshua to do his part: "Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go.鈥

Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.
- Joshua 1:7
New International Version

To encourage Joshua more, God re-affirms His promise in verse 9, 鈥淚 will be with you鈥. God gave instructions to Joshua that Israel should know His word, study them and follow His commands, and God will make them prosperous and successful. Prosperity and success does not always mean material blessings but obedience does bring blessings.

Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.鈥
- Joshua 1:8-9
New International Version

Do you want to experience true victory over your battles? Believe in the Lord and let Him fight for and with you. God Bless and have a great day in God鈥檚 Word.
