Theme: The Conqueror’s Mentality.
Text: Joshua 10
Now the five kings had fled and hidden in the cave at Makkedah. 17 When Joshua was told that the five kings had been found hiding in the cave at Makkedah,18 he said, “Roll large rocks up to the mouth of the cave and post some men there to guard it. 19 But don’t stop; pursue your enemies! Attack them from the rear and don’t let them reach their cities, for the Lord your God has given them into your hand.”
Sometimes it is the troubles we are avoiding that God uses to set us up for victory. Knowing what is important at every particular time in battle is critical in conquering your enemies. Keeping the main thing the main thing is the mentality of the conqueror.
We may have so many things going through our minds. With so many options available unto us, we may be drawn away from the main thing: finding the solution to the problem. Joshua had the option of killing the Kings and winning the battle or pursuing the enemies before they reach their fortified cities. He chooses to pursue them because he was supposed to wipe the people in the land; the kings were only four of them.
When faced with varied options, keep pursuing the main thing. Cover the cave where the kings are and come and deal with them later. Don’t be distracted from the getting to the finish line. Always keep the main thing the main thing.
