One man of you shall chase a thousand, for the Lord your God is He who fights for you, as He promised you. Joshua 23:10
As I was looking at my stats on Word Press this morning, I realized that this post makes 1000 for me. That’s only on Word Press, it doesn’t count for the year I took off to only post on Facebook. That’s a hurdle I never thought I’d reach. Why? Because I went from wanting to be recognized to only wanting Him to be recognized. I shifted my focus to who is in me instead of who I am.
So getting back to the scripture above, let me explain something. Joshua was a very old man and the people he had led into the promised land had been at rest in the land. He called everyone to him so he could remind them of what God had promised them and to remind them to follow the laws of God so that He could continue to bless them.
But this promise spoke of the strength God would give them, supernatural strength. You see when God fights for you, you’re never alone! One man will chase 1000. I don’t know about you but that’s a whole lot of men for one to chase. But when you realize who stands with you, nothing is impossible for you.
Jesus spoke of this in Luke 1:37 when he simply stated, “For with God, nothing will be impossible.” With. That doesn’t put it all on God, it puts you in the equation. We expect God to do it all by Himself, but God gave us the power and authority and He infuses you with supernatural strength to do what you normally couldn’t do.
So my friend, don’t be intimidated by what God has asked you to do. Remember He is in you and gives you the strength and the ability to do it. You weren’t meant to do it alone, you were meant to do it with Him.
Have a great weekend!
Love to you all!
