“Joshua and all Israel pretended to be beaten back by them and fled toward the wilderness.”
Joshua 8:15 HCSB
The Lord fights for us, but just as Joshua has a battle plan, we have to plan ahead as well. The Lord could have just as easily engulfed the entire city in fire, or swallowed it whole, but He wanted Joshua to have part of the victory. The same is true for us. The Lord fights our battles, and as long as He is on our side, we have nothing to fear, but that doesn’t mean we do nothing.
