Commentary from Pastor Michael White:
Now after the death of Joshua it came to pass that the children of Israel asked the Lord, saying, “Who shall be first to go up for us against the Canaanites to fight against them?” – Judges 1:1
God had already given them the land! But the people of Israel still had to go up and fight. The land was theirs! But they still had to go up and take it.
What has God promised you? Just because God promises you something doesn’t mean it’s going to drop into your lap. Just because He’s given you a destiny doesn’t mean it’s going to effortlessly unfold with no work on your part! God doesn’t need your permission to do what He wants to do; but He does desire your partnership.
The good news is: the battle is already won. We don’t fight for victory; we fight from victory. Are you willing to fight for the promises of God?
Father, fill me with boldness to fight for Your promises! You have spoken great things over me. I want to contend for them all, in Jesus’ name!
