I bless you to know
What God promised Joshua:
“He will without fail drive out
From before you the Canaanites,
The Hittites, the Hivites….” (Joshua 3:10)
Ever “ite” in sight,
He will make to flee.
He will be with you
And fight for you
He’ll drive them out,
“…Perizzites, the Girgashites …,”
Never heard of them!
He’ll deliver you from the obstacles
You could have never imagined.
He’ll not stop fighting for you—
“…the Amorites, the Jebusites.”
It’s not the constancy of
Life’s struggles that is amazing—
It’s the relentlessness
Of God to drive out every enemy!
Don’t give up,
Child of God,
With every new battle,
You’re going to discover new depths
In the grace of God.
