Joshua 12 is a chapter of records. The list of names, titles, and places are records that remind the reader of God’s presence and their experience of God’s deliverance. God gave them victory over the powerful and strong kings listed in this chapter. This experience with God should provide them with the faith to trust God and do what is right when facing other challenges in life.
Now, how about you? Have you ever faced something that seemed impossible and conquered it because of Lord Jesus Christ? Maybe it was an accident or illness that you did not think you would survive. Perhaps it was the time you spent with the military, risking your life for the sake of others. But whatever the situation, you recognized God’s presence and experienced God’s deliverance. Have you kept a record of God’s deliverance? If not, start one today. It will help you remember and rely on God during difficult days, and it will help those you love to trust God because of what God has done for you in your life.
