Verses:

Exo. 33:14 “And He said, My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.”

 

Excerpts:

We all need to learn a lesson from the account [in Joshua 7]. We, the people of God, should always be one with our God. Today, especially in the New Testament, our God is not only among us but also within each one of us. Therefore, every one of us is not a solitary individual, a person alone. On the contrary, we are men with God, God-men. For this reason, we must realize that whatever we do, wherever we go, and whatever we are should not be by ourselves. We should not act, behave, or do things by ourselves but with God.

 

The secret of Israel’s defeat at Ai was that they lost God’s presence and were no longer one with Him. After this defeat, Joshua learned the lesson of staying with the Lord before the Ark. Eventually, the Lord came in to speak to him and to tell him what to do. The principle is the same with us today. If we have God’s presence, we have wisdom, insight, foresight, and the inner knowledge concerning things. This is the way to walk as a Christian, to fight as a child of God, and to build up the Body of Christ.

 

We need to remember that we are God-men and to practice being one with the Lord. We are in Christ and He is in us. Therefore, whatever we do should not be done by ourselves but should be done with and by another One. (Life-study of Joshua, msg.8)
