이해하기(Understanding)
As of right now, Joshua advanced all the way down south to Makkedah after leaving Gilgal in aiding Gibeon; all of this is after having crossed the Jordan River, making camp at Gilgal, and bringing down Jericho and Ai. Joshua gathered` men to take over Libnah in the south, Lachish, Gezer, Eglon, Hebron, and Debir. After defeating all those cities one by one, he and his men made their way back to Gilgal (v. 29-43).


적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God delivers victory to those who obey him. Joshua is not experiencing victory after victory due to his strategy or military power, but it came as a result of his obedience to God’s words. Your future, too, is not in your grades, beauty, or money, but is in your heart that is after God.

What is the lesson for me (us)?
Joshua did not rest or slow down in his conquest of many of Canaanite cities, as he simply looked to obey God’s command. Do you think you would be able to carry out the command to rejoice always, pray continually, and give thanks in all circumstances (1 Thess. 5:16)?


기도하기(Praying)
Just like Joshua and his men, help me to experience victory after victory in both my spiritual walk and life.
