묵상, 나의 편에서 싸우시는 하나님, 수 10:42
이스라엘의 하나님 여호와께서 이스라엘을 위하여 싸우셨으므로 여호수아가 이 모든 왕들과 그들의 땅을 단번에 빼앗으니라
여호수아가 계속해서 가나안 남부 정복 전쟁에 완전 승리를 거둔다
Who is God
• 하나님은 이스라엘의 하나님이시다
• 하나님은 이스라엘의 편에서 싸우신다.
• 하나님은 예수 그리스도의 편에서 싸우신다.
하나님은 가나안 땅을 이스라엘 백성들에게 주시겠다는 약속을 신실하게 이루시며 이스라엘의 편에서 싸워주셨다. 이제 예수님 믿고 이스라엘과 연합한 그리스도인들을 위하여 이스라엘의 하나님은 지금도 싸워주신다, 그렇다, 이스라엘의 하나님은 예수 그리스도를 믿는 교회와 성도의 편에서 싸워주신다. 얼마나 감사한가. 때문에 예수님께서는 말씀하셨다, 요 16:24, “ 지금까지는 너희가 내 이름으로 아무 것도 구하지 아니하였으나 구하라 그리하면 받으리니 너희 기쁨이 충만하리라. “ 여러 환자들을 위하여 간절히 기도하고 있는 중이다, 어떤 약을 취해도 혈압이 떨어지지 않는 형제를 위하여 간절히 기도했을 때 하나님은 혈압을 낮추어 주셨다. 음식을 토하고 먹지 못하던 형제를 위하여 간절히 기도했을 때 토하지 않고 식욕도 회복되고 있다는 감사한 소식을 들었다. 우리 성도님들의 기도를 들으시고 응답하신 것이다. 이스라엘의 하나님은 지금도 살아계시고 당신을 의지하고 사랑하는 자들의 편에서 싸워주신다.
한편, 여호수아도 열심히 싸웠다, 하나님은 이스라엘의 편에서 싸워주시지만, 이스라엘이 힘을 내어 싸우고자 하지 않는다면 이스라엘은 오늘 본문과 같은 승리를 거두지 못했을 것이다. 나의 편에서 싸우시는 하나님을 믿으며 담대히 영적 전쟁을 수행하자. 귀신 들린자, 병든 자들의 치유를 위하여 더 담대히 기도하자, 주님은 내편이다. 내가 싸우고자 하면 승리를 주신다.
Sin to avoid, 두려워하며 영적 전쟁을 회피하지는 않는가?
Promise to hold 하나님은 그리스도인들의 편에서 싸우신다
Action to take place, 나의 편에서 싸워주실 하나님을 믿으며 힘을 다해 싸우자.
하나님 아버지, 늘 나의 편에서 싸워주심을 감사드립니다. 늘 기도하는 것에 응답해주심 감사합니다. 영적 전쟁에서 허덕이는 성도님들, 귀신들려 고통받는 자들, 불치병으로 날마다 고통받는 성도님들, 가정 문제, 직장 문제, 사업 문제로 고통받는 성도님들을 위하여 더 담대히 영적 전쟁을 수행하겠습니다, 주님은 우리 편에서 싸워주시며 우리에게 승리를 주시고 치유와 회복을 주실 줄 믿습니다. 여호수아의 하나님이 저의 하나님이심을 고백합니다. 아멘.
God is fighting on my side, Josh, 10:42
Joshua conquered all these kings and their land in a single campaign, for the Lord, the God of Israel, was fighting for his people.
Joshua continues to win a victory in the conquest of southern Canaan, as God is fighting for Israel.
Who is God
• God is the God of Israel.
• God fights for Israel.
• God fights for those who belong to Jesus Christ.
God made promise to give Canaan to the people of Israel and faithfully fought for Israel so that Israel could conquer southern Canaan. Christians who believe in Jesus are united with Israel and the God of Israel who still fights for Israel. Indeed the God of Israel fights for His church and believers of Jesus Christ. How grateful I am to belong to God who is always fight for His children. So Jesus said, " You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy.” Jn. 16:24. What a wonderful promise given to Christians. I am praying hard for many patients and thankfully, I am hearing wonderful answers to these prayers. God lowered the blood pressure of one our church members dramatically after prayers. Also when we prayed earnestly for a brother who could not eat well and throw up frequently, God heard us. I heard the grateful news that he was recovering his appetite without throwing up. The God of Israel is still alive and fighting for those who rely on Him and love Him.
On the other hand, Joshua fought hard as well. Although God is fighting for Israel, Israel might not have won the same victory as the text today if Israel did not want to fight. Only when man fights for God, God fights for man. We should do our best with the partnership with Jesus who is always on our side. Boldly fight against the enemy, trusting the Lord who is always for us. Pray more boldly for deliverance and healing. The LORD is on my side. If I want to fight, He will fight for me and give victory.
Sin to avoid, Do not avoid spiritual warfare due to fear.
Promise to hold, God fights not only for Israel, but for Christians.
Action to take place, Trusting the Lord who will fight for me, do my best to fight in spiritual warfare.
Thank you, God the Father, for always fighting on my side. Thank you for always responding to my prayers. Let me continue to fight for the saints who are struggling in spiritual warfare, those who are demon-possessed, those who suffer from terminal diseases, those who suffer daily from family problems, work and business problems. Please fight for me, as you have promised, for I am fighting for your flock. Please answer our prayers, give us victories and grant deliverance and healing. Joshua's God is my God. Amen
O, Christ crucified!
Joshua struck them from Kadesh-barnea even as far as Gaza, and all the country of Goshen even as far as Gibeon. (Josh 10:41)
- A summary statement of Joshua’s thorough victory throughout the land of Judah
Who is God?
- He fulfills His promise.
- He gives success to those who follow His will.
In the statement that summarizes Joshua’s thorough victory throughout the land of Judah, the key locations stand out: Kadesh-barnea the southernmost city, Gaza a city next to the Great Sea, and Gibeon, along the northern boundary of Judah and the place where the battle all began.
This is a sweeping and remarkable victory. How do you gain such victory? Only by the Cross! Why? Christ crucified is the power of God and the wisdom of God to those who believe! How is your day, or week, going? Are you experiencing a thorough victory? If you are falling short, what is the reason? It’s because you haven’t died to yourself, and you haven’t held to the cross. Look to the Cross. Where He died for you, Where He broke the sin, the curse and the flesh.
“Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.” You must kneel down and surrender to the Cross today and every day. “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake, he is the one will save it.” Let where He died be where you truly died, and die today and everyday. Because that’s the divine work and proclamation (Gal 5:24), agree with it with all your life. You died there. Thus, and only thus, Christ lives in you and you live.
For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
Christ crucified! Oh how so painfully, effortlessly and hopelessly have I drifted away from the power and wisdom of God, Christ crucified? Lord, forgive me. Lord, break me and mold me. Lord, let me remember and also declare, “may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”
- Sin to avoid: Measure everything, motives, habits, words, etc. by the absolute standard of the Cross. Fight the flesh and know that you have crucified the flesh and die to it everyday.
- Promise to hold: Christ crucified is the power of God and the wisdom of God
- Action to take: Come to the cross, look to the Cross and bear the cross now, everyday and always.
Lord, help me come to the Cross, look to You and die where You died for me. In Jesus Christ’s Name. Amen
