‘Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them.’ Joshua 1:6
Today is Veterans Day in the U.S. The day will be filled with parades and other celebrations, honoring those who have served and who serve today in our military. Many cities and towns will host festivities to honor the fallen, and to show appreciation for those who daily put their lives on the line for our freedoms.
The fight for freedom was begun many years ago. God ordained that His people should fight for their lands, many times over. He could have just swept his hand over it, or spoken His wishes out loud, and the land would have been pure and spotless, with no fighting, no blood shed.
