Joshua 1:9 (NLT) This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
As I read through the book Joshua I am amazed at how when the Lord spoke to Joshua, Joshua never stood before the Lord with excuses. He didn’t attempt to question why he couldn’t conquer the territory the Lord had already given him. He never whined and complained about his childhood or his feelings of inadequacy or his anxiety or anything else you can think of. He simply kept moving forward by faith. As a consequence he led the entire nation of Israel to conquer and settle in the Promised Land.
If you would wake up each day with the same forward faith of Joshua, a faith that simply trusted the Lord as shown by your actions and behavior, just think about what area of your life you could conquered. (I have some areas in my life that need to be conquered) You could turn the tables on the enemies of your past, on the abuse and neglect and fear and hurt. You can conquer that enemy territory.
The Lord has already conquered that area of your life for you. He wants to hand it over to you so you can obtain victory! We have some territory to that we need to conquer people of God!
