Joshua 5:13 (NIV) Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, "Are you for us or for our enemies?"14 "Neither," he replied, "but as commander of the army of the LORD I have now come." Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, "What message does my Lord have for his servant?"15 The commander of the LORD's army replied, "Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy." And Joshua did so.
We all have battles that we need to face this week: work we haven't done, unresolved conflicts, a temptation, an illness, or finances we're too ashamed to look at. The Lord never meant for us to face these battles alone. He is with us, walking ahead, fighting our battles along the way.
Many times, God also sends us people to help us face our battles. These divine appointments can be in the form of friends, fellow churchgoers, counselors or doctors. Today, pray for God to send you someone to face your battle this week. Pray that you will recognize this person and do your part to engage them. Also, pray that you will be that person God sends to help another face their battle.
