15 As the LORD commanded Moses his servant, so did Moses command Joshua, and so did Joshua; he left nothing undone of all that the LORD commanded Moses. Joshua 11:15 KJV
If God calls you to be a giant slayer, He will also give you courage to do all He commands. You do not need to be afraid of giants. Wear your armor and seek God for sensitivity to His will that you will know when to move and when to stand still (Exodus 14:13).
There will always be someone in Satan’s camp, looking for a trophy. They may see you as a good challenge, to add to their feats of triumph. But be as David, whom when He faced Goliath, did not wear the helmet of another warrior, for this would have been a hinderance. He took the sling, for which use God had been training David his entire life. And David did not come to the giant with lofty words, as one invincible of his own power. But David spoke to the giant.
Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield: but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied. I Samuel 17:45 KJV
Though Joshua and the children of Israel were mighty in valor as a result of God’s favor, there were some who thought themselves able to circumvent God’s power to defeat the Israelites. These took great pride in themselves and blinded by their own glory. Therefore they took no thought, or precaution in making a stand against Israel (Joshua 11:5).
6 And the LORD said unto Joshua, Be not afraid because of them: for to morrow about this time will I deliver them up all slain before Israel: thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire. Joshua 11:6 KJV
God was consistently with Joshua , because he was trustworthy. God could depend on him. The Bible says that Joshua left nothing undone which God had commanded (Joshua 11:15).
