You shall do to Ai and its king as you did to Jericho and its king, except that you may carry off their plunder and livestock for yourselves. Set an ambush behind the city.   Joshua 8:2

We now begin a series of studies on the fall of Ai, a city that God delivered into the hands of Israel. In this and the following nine messages, we will see some facts that led the holy people to be exalted after the defeat suffered in that region. This is the lesson: following the instructions of the Word will make you win your struggles and become victorious.

If there is someone in your family who is separated from others or who does not respect heavenly directions, it is in the fulfillment of the Word that the enemy will be overcome. When we keep the commandments, we are fulfilled in our determinations. Then he saw the victory of God’s people. Enemies have to realize that too; thus God will be glorified in us!

Each battle has its particularities and its dangers; therefore, the Lord must always be consulted. Nothing is hidden in the sight of God. Ignoring the direction given by the Most High will prevent anyone from acting as His servant. Remember: your fight is spiritual – against the forces of darkness.

In the battle of Jericho the Israelites could not take the spoils, but in the Ai, they could. The reason for this difference only God can explain. In fact, only He knows why He gives us certain directions. The Lord knows even the thoughts of the adversary. There is no way to beat the accuser without using God’s armor. He prepares us according to the need of each fight.

A good attitude is never to argue with the One who is Omniscient, the Almighty. He is the only one who can use this title. Therefore, be submissive to His command, for He is giving you the best. To ignore what the Father says is to let the evil one invade your life. Whoever obeys the Creator eats the best of this earth (Isa. 1:19). How will you act?

Israel was told to ambush Ai. As we have said in other messages, each battle is different from the others. In Jericho, a large and fortified city, the sons of Jacob had to surround it for seven days. On the seventh day God commanded them to be surrounded seven times, and the seventh time, when they reached the end of the walk, they should shout with all their might, and the wall would crumble.

Their obedience in this battle made God fulfill His promise. The work in Ai would be different in the eyes of the Amorites. They were prepared, waiting for the coming of Israel, but they had no heavenly strategy. It was taken! Hallelujah!

In Christ, with love,

God, our Strategist! The pattern of victory is the same for all your children, regardless of the problem that afflicts them. In fact, when we have Thee as our God, we are victorious in every fight.

Just as our Jericho fell, the petulant Ai will fall, because when you work, the enemy is defeated. We very much need Your help and Your hand working in our behalf. We do not accept defeat.

Look at the threats from Hell! Satan thinks we are alone, but we have Thee as our quintessential Warrior. The truth is, not a hair on our head will fall if it is not Your will. Thank you for your power!
