“Remember who we’re really battling (Ephesians 6:12).” <>< Dona (03/28/20)

THIS IS NOT A NEW CRAFT JUST A SUGGESTION TO ENHANCE LAST SATURDAY’S CRAFT.

Today’s craft is a “Battle Plan” commitment. The directions are at the end of this post.

In Joshua 13:6-7 the Lord told Joshua He would drive out their (the Israelites’) enemies before them.  And then Joshua was to divide up the inheritance (their enemies’ land) among the Israelites.

Something to think about

God knows the future and as He leads you He already knows about the victories that lie ahead for you. 

Something to experience

According to my Bible notes our own unconquered lands could be:

*places God is leading us to go

*languages God wants us to learn so we can reach the unsaved

*new missionary areas in our very own neighborhoods

*a particular interest group or institution that needs our wisdom

*unchallenged public problems or ethical issues

*unconfessed sin in our own life

*undeveloped talents and resources, waiting for us to use. 

What territory has God given you to conquer. That territory is your “promised land.” And as Christians, our inheritance will be a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1).

DIRECTIONS:

BATTLE PLAN – If you made a shield back on 03/21/20, write on it any unconquered land (see the suggestions above) that you’ve decided you are wanting to conquer. Place this shield where you can be reminded of what the Lord (and you) will conquer. If you didn’t make a shield and don’t have time to go back and do so, just write down what you’re wanting to conquer on a slip of paper and post it in a visible place. You might want to write at the top of the paper “The Battle Is The Lord’s”.

Dear scripturecrafts.com visitors,

 For the next few Saturdays my suggested craft is to “make” time to pray for not just your own family but for others. 

Please pray for not only your family but all those around you who are right now going through possibly a battle that eclipses yours.  Pray for those who are ill; those who are taking care of the ill; those who are grieving the loss of a loved one; those who live alone; those who are struggling with a food shortage; those who are seeking a cure/vaccine for the Coronavirus; and those who are struggling to understand where God is in all of this. 

The Bible says “draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8).

Keep yourself and your family safe but please make time to pray.
