Only You Can Choose Victory

choose victory“Joshua went and defeated the Anakites…only in Gaza, Gath and Ashdod did any survive. So Joshua took the entire land, just as the LORD had direct Moses and he gave it as an inheritance to Israel.” (Joshua 11:21a,22b-23)
Joshua modeled for the entire Israeli nation how to listen to and follow their God all the way to victory. He even showed them how to take down the giants in the land!
Yet there was one thing Joshua couldn’t do. He couldn’t fight their battles when it came to gaining full possession of their individual lands. Each tribe and each succeeding generation had to fight their own battles as they drew upon the lessons learned from Joshua and their leaders.
Like Joshua, Jesus has taken out the giants in the land on the cross and has the power to defeat the giants in your life due to His resurrected life. He will show you how to defeat those giants, if only you will listen and follow Him throughout your day. He will give you victory over your drugs of choice, if only you’d pick up your biblical tools and use them.
No one can do that for you, except you. You must choose victory; no one can choose it for you. It’s as one author said, “The choices we make in this life, small or large, are ours alone.” Victory over your giants is a guaranteed done deal, if only you choose to use your biblical tools, the truths the Spirit gives you from God’s Word, in each and every situation you face.
Go ahead. Make Jesus’ day. Knock down a giant or two today.
