Do you ever have moments when you are reading God’s Word and you wonder, “Why is that in there?” I do. All the time.
Behold, Joshua 12.
This chapter basically details out the kings the Israelites conquered, who did the conquering (i.e. Moses or Joshua) and the order in which they were conquered.
As tedious as it is to read those things, I am reminded that just as God asked Joshua to record His victories, we should do the same.
I believe that God wants us to document our own battles and record His victories so that we can remember God’s goodness and His might. It serves not only as a reminder to us, but it is a testimony of God’s hand on our lives to those who read them. That’s how we pass down His legacy of faithfulness.
