A Winning Strategy

December 27, 2012

During my days as a high school basketball coach, I made a huge mistake. I sent some of my players to scout an opponent. They returned with this report: We can take those guys easily. Overconfident, we lost to that team. Does that sound familiar? To me, it sounds like the situation at Ai when Joshua sent out his scouts, who misjudged their opponent’s strength.

But there was more to the defeat at Ai than bad scouting. Israel lost the battle and 36 soldiers for several reasons that I think we can learn from.

Shortly before the loss at Ai, Joshua led his army successfully against Jericho because he knew God’s plan of attack. But there is no mention of Joshua consulting God before Ai. Prior to the battle of Jericho, the men had consecrated themselves to God (Josh. 5:2-8). Before Ai—nothing is said about Joshua’s men preparing themselves spiritually. The reason the Bible gives for the Israelites’ loss is sin in the camp. Achan had stolen from the spoils of Jericho (7:1). They could not defeat Ai until the sin was confessed and the people had consecrated themselves (7:16-26). Then God gave them a plan for victory (8:1-7).

A winning strategy for our daily battles: confessing our sin and living in the power that God provides.

Dear Lord, before I go off into the battle today,
forgive me of my sin and lead me in the path You
want me to go. I want to serve You. Empower me
to live for You and Your will. Amen.
Purity in the heart produces power in the life.

Read: Joshua 7:1-13

Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant. —Joshua 7:11
Bible in a Year:
Revelation 4-8

A PRAYER OF PROTECTION

The light of God surround you
The love of God enfold you
The power of God protect you
The presence of God watch over you
Wherever you are, God is,
And all is well.
Amen.

BLESS THIS HOUSE
 Bless this house O Lord we pray; Make it safe by night and day; 
Bless these walls so firm and stout, Keeping want and trouble out:
Bless the roof and chimneys tall, Let thy peace lie over all;
Bless this door, that it may prove ever open to joy and love.
Bless these windows shining bright, Letting in God's heav'nly light;
Bless the hearth a'blazing there, with smoke ascending like a prayer;
Bless the folk who dwell within, keep them pure and free from sin;
Bless us all that we may be Fit O Lord to dwell with thee;
Bless us all that one day we May dwell O Lord with thee.

Good evening, Connie, and thanks for the Tribute to Our Troops.

Did you have to commute today? *hugs*

I’m still at work, but leaving soon. I never had 5 minutes to myself all day...what a zoo!! And we had to combat a snail pace internet. Getting anything done took forever! We kept waiting for it to crash all together.

I had three lessons today, and got to see the wonderful musical instruments Santa brought.

A Gibson Les Paul
A Taylor Accoustic-Electric
and
A Fender Stratocaster

And my students let me play them.

Good evening, Luv...((HUGS))

I loved the picture. Gotta love our military men and women. Panetta and Dempsey and obummer are in so many of the pics, but no way will I post them. None of them care about the well being of our troops and vets.
