January 5, 2024

Dust off your sword, polish your helmet, and get ready to don your spiritual armor! There is a fight we must engage because the enemy will not go away on his own. Even though we’ve been given a physical picture of what the armor looks like, it is not physical by any means; it is a battle against the spiritual forces of darkness, an evil empire trying its best to make us weak and take us down into darkness with them. If we could see into the spiritual realm, there wouldn’t be a day that we failed to seek God and acknowledge his power and help against the forces of evil. We are at war with the enemy and should never engage without the complete protection of the armor of God, and even then, you should never insult them and should only rebuke them as Jesus did when he encountered Satan. There is no need to be afraid of them when you have the power of our Almighty God going before you and standing behind you. However, if you leave home without your spiritual armor and you come home beaten and battered, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Several more countries had to be routed out by Joshua and the Israelites. They came together as one force against Israel, but God assured Joshua that he would take them all out, and that’s exactly what he did. Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod were the only areas where a few Anakims were left. So we see here that spiritual battles lead to physical victories! Armor up and fight the good fight of faith, which begins with the daily acknowledgment of God!

And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire. Joshua 11:6
