Embrace the Battle
In this passage God tells His people that He will no longer help them in their fight against their enemies. In fact, He will fight against them. Why dies He do this? Because they wearer soft on their enemies, a type of sin, and did not fully obey the Lord by destroying all the enemies of the new land. Have we we been like this? Have we been soft on the things in our lives that the Lord wants us to destroy? Does the Lord fight our battles that we should be fighting? It is also interesting to note in this chapter that God did not allow Joshua to destroy all their enemies at once. God rations our battles. He does not give us victory over all of them at once because He knows that we need "the battle" to continue to grow and be strong.
