JOSHUA 23:3

You have seen all that the Lord your God has done to all these nations because of you, for the Lord your God is He who has fought for you.

JOSHUA IS BRINGING TO THEIR ATTENTION, UNDERSCORING AND HIGHLIGHTING THE EXTENT TO WHICH YAHWEH HAS MADE PROVISION FOR THEM. IT WAS YAHWEH, THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC AND JACOB THAT WON THE BATTLES FOR THEM, GIVING THEM THE LAND OF THEIR ENEMIES, DIVIDING IT UP AMONGST THEM.

IN THE SAME WAY, WE NEED TO REALIZE, BE AWARE AND GIVE ALL GLORY TO THE FATHER FOR THE THINGS HE HAS GIVEN, IS GIVING AND WILL YET GIVE TO US. WE NEED TO SURRENDER, TRUST, WALK IN FAITH, AND ACKNOWLEDGE THAT WHETHER IT IS A HOUSE, PROPERTY, OR OTHER PROVISION, IT IS GOD WHO IS AT THE HELM, MAKING IT ALL COME TOGETHER, INTERVENING, DRIVING BACK ENEMY FORCES WHEN THEY INTERFERE, REARRANGING, AND ORDERING EVENTS, SITUATIONS, AND PEOPLE IN ORDER TO BRING THE BEST OUTCOME.

UNLESS WE HAVE TURNED THINGS OVER TO THE ENEMY, IT IS ALWAYS GOD WHO IS AT THE HELM.
