On verses 9-24:  What can we learn from this list of 31 kings that Joshua and the Israelites defeated?    As I look at this list of conquered kings, I am reminded that we all have certain kings to conquer in our lives.  Maybe it’s a king called worry, a king called laziness, a king called pride, or self-centeredness? Maybe it’s the king of negativity and complaining? Maybe it’s the king of jealousy or bitterness?  Which king poses the biggest threat to you at this time?

May you go into today knowing that by faith in the greatest king of all, Jesus Christ, you have everything you need to defeat the other kings in your life.  Like Joshua, as you trust in God, may you find yourself over the long haul conquering those kings more and more.  For in Jesus Christ you are more than a conqueror. Believe that as you go into today.

Lord Jesus, You are the king of all kings, the lord of all lords, the name above every name.  You have no rival and all things have been placed under Your feet.  Thank You that the king called [insert your biggest struggle here:] ________ is nothing compared to You.  Thank You that through faith in You I will overcome that king one day.  Let today be the day.  In Jesus’ name, AMEN!
