Semper Fi

The people of Joseph replied, “The hill country is not enough for us, and all the Canaanites who live in the plain have iron chariots…But Joshua said…though the Canaanites have iron chariots and though they are strong, you can drive them out.” Joshua 17:16-18

I think Joshua was the first Marine. From the amphibious assault on the shores of the Red Sea to the 12 man recon mission into the Promised Land to being the Commanding General of Israel, he was always faithful. It wasn’t his strength or courage that lead him to one of the most successful military campaigns in history; it was his obedience and faith in God. Of the 12-man recon team, only he and Caleb thought that God was big enough to defeat the giants in the land. And even in his old age when the troops started to doubt he said, “though the Canaanites have iron chariots and though they are strong, you can drive them out.” Joshua was a great warrior because of he was always faithful to God and His plan. He believed, trusted, and executed. How about you? Do you see the iron chariot on the horizon? Are your knees a little weak before the battle? Semper Fidelis! Be always faith-full to your God. He is more than able to lead you to victory. SP287
