Tuesday, 8th December 2020: You have the upper hand!

Scripture Reading: Joshua 2:24
And they said unto Joshua, Truly the LORD hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.

Reflections: Joshua sent 2 spies to map out the land of Jericho as part of his military strategy. The spies were almost caught on their mission but they escaped through the help of Rahab, a native of Jericho. According to Rahab, her decision to help them was driven by the fact the entire land of Jericho had been cowed into fear by the news of how God fights for the people of Israel. The spies could not help but rush back to Joshua with this information. ‘All the inhabitants of the land do faint because of us’, they told Joshua. This boosted the courage of the entire camp of Israel. Like the people of Israel, God has also thrown your enemies into fear. He has given you the upper hand to win any battle!

Prayer: Thank you Lord that you have caused my enemies to be afraid of me.

Confession: All my enemies are afraid of me. I have the upper hand!
