Joshua - 1

he fought for you

Joshua 23:1-3 (JDV)

Joshua 23:1 A long time after Yahveh had given Israel rest from all the enemies around them, Joshua was old, advanced in days.
Joshua 23:2 So Joshua summoned all Israel, including its elders, leaders, judges, and officers, and said to them, “I am old, advanced in days,
Joshua 23:3 and you have seen for yourselves everything Yahveh your God did to all these nations in front of you, because it was Yahveh your God who was fighting for you.

he fought for you

Joshua just wanted to remind the victorious Israelites that they didn’t accomplish everything by themselves. They had help. The future generations would need to rely on God as well, because there were no guarantees of sucess or even survival without him.

Lord, thank you for fighting for us. May we always give you a reason to fight on our side.
