Joshua 24:6 When I brought your fathers out of Egypt and you reached the Red Sea, the Egyptians pursued your fathers with chariots and horsemen as far as the sea.
Joshua 24:7 Your fathers cried out to Yahveh, so he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea over them, engulfing them. Your own eyes saw what I did to Egypt. After that, you lived in the wilderness for a long time.
Joshua 24:8 ” ‘Later, I brought you to the land of the Amorites who lived beyond the Jordan. They fought against you, but I handed them over to you. You possessed their land, and I annihilated them before you.
Joshua 24:9 Balak son of Zippor, king of Moab, set out to fight against Israel. He sent for Balaam son of Beor to curse you,
Joshua 24:10 but I would not listen to Balaam. Instead, he repeatedly blessed you, and I rescued you from him.

past opponents

Joshua reminded his people of numerous times when opponents came against them, but God rescued them. History reminds us of the wisdom of staying faithful to the one who stays faithful to us.

Lord, thank you for the lessons from past victories, giving us the courage to face today’s challenges.
