As for all the inhabitants of the mountain regions from Lebanon to Misrephoth Maim, . . . I myself will drive them out before the Israelites. Be sure to allocate this land to Israel for an inheritance, as I have instructed you . . . Joshua 13:5-6
This scripture is set during the time when Joshua and the Israelites were driving out the inhabitants of their new territory. Joshua had grown old and there was still much land to conquer. I was intrigued where God says, I myself will drive them out and it struck me that the battle is truly the Lord’s. He Himself drove out the Sidions without the help or need of the army. Dear Lord, we stand beside you in courage, for the conflict is yours to withstand, to resolve, to win. Love to all.
