Scripture Reading: Joshua 8: 13, 26. And the LORD said unto Joshua, Stretch out the spear that is in thy hand toward Ai; for I will give it into thine hand. And Joshua stretched out the spear that he had in his hand toward the city. For Joshua drew not his hand back, wherewith he stretched out the spear, until he had utterly destroyed all the inhabitants of Ai.
Reflections: Joshua formulated a conquest strategy (ambush) as instructed by God to conquer the city of Ai. As the strategy moved into implementation, God instructed him to spread out the spear in his hands towards the city. This action released divine power to back his men as they warred against their opponents. Even though God did not specify how long Joshua should stretch out his spear, he still held on to that position until his men had utterly overpowered and killed the men of Ai. It is evident from this that although Joshua was backed by divine power, he still had a role to play. By holding on to his outstretched spear, he demonstrated determination and focus. He also refused to give in to tiredness. Divine power may aid you in life but you need to look out for any role you need to personally play and remain committed to these roles. Like Joshua you will win in life!
Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to identify and play any role required of me as you make a way for me by your divine power.
Confession: I am backed by divine authority in life. I also know and play any personal role required of me as I march on to victory.
