Deuteronomy 3

1 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei.

2 And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

3 So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.

4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.

6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.

7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.

8 And we took at that time out of the hand of the two kings of the Amorites the land that was on this side Jordan, from the river of Arnon unto mount Hermon;

9 (Which Hermon the Sidonians call Sirion; and the Amorites call it Shenir;)

10 All the cities of the plain, and all Gilead, and all Bashan, unto Salchah and Edrei, cities of the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

11 For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.

12 And this land, which we possessed at that time, from Aroer, which is by the river Arnon, and half mount Gilead, and the cities thereof, gave I unto the Reubenites and to the Gadites.

13 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.

14 Jair the son of Manasseh took all the country of Argob unto the coasts of Geshuri and Maachathi; and called them after his own name, Bashanhavothjair, unto this day.

15 And I gave Gilead unto Machir.

16 And unto the Reubenites and unto the Gadites I gave from Gilead even unto the river Arnon half the valley, and the border even unto the river Jabbok, which is the border of the children of Ammon;

17 The plain also, and Jordan, and the coast thereof, from Chinnereth even unto the sea of the plain, even the salt sea, under Ashdothpisgah eastward.

18 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The Lord your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.

19 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;

20 Until the Lord have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also possess the land which the Lord your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have given you.

21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the Lord your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the Lord do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.

22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

23 And I besought the Lord at that time, saying,

24 O Lord God, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?

25 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.

26 But the Lord was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.

27 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

28 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

29 So we abode in the valley over against Bethpeor.

  1. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    It’s is one thing to go into battle and going to battle knowing that your have won. The bible doesn’t say we are not going to have to go, but that it will be the Lord that will fight for you.
    If we were to have any fear after the Lord said he would fight for us, has He ever lost? Is there anything to hard for the Lord? Your sickness, your problem, your backslider children?

    This is possibly our biggest challenge, thinking we can do a better job. We want to give God our problem only if we get the result we want it it’s handled our way. We can not fool God, all or nothing.

  2. iLove to Grow in the Word
    “Do not be afraid of the nations there, for the LORD your God will fight for you.’”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Praise the Lord, how many situations in our lives come because we were not obedient to the voice of God. When God is on our side, as long as we listen, we will win.

  3. 25 I pray thee, let me go over, and see the good land that is beyond Jordan, that goodly mountain, and Lebanon.

    26 But the Lord was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.

    27 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

    28 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

    29 So we abode in the valley over against Bethpeor.

  4. Please let me cross the Jordan to see the wonderful land on the other side, the beautiful hill country and the Lebanon mountains.’ “But the LORD was angry with me because of you, and he would not listen to me. ‘That’s enough!’ he declared. ‘Speak of it no more. But go up to Pisgah Peak, and look over the land in every direction. Take a good look, but you may not cross the Jordan River. Instead, commission Joshua and encourage and strengthen him, for he will lead the people across the Jordan. He will give them all the land you now see before you as their possession.’ (‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭3‬:‭25-28‬ NLT)

    The price of sin is costly!!!

    All I can do is see the promise land and not possess it. As we see disobedience does have its consequences. Either it will affect you, or the generation that comes after you. But as for me I’m thankful for the mercy, GRACE, love, and the blood of Jesus CHRIST that allows me to move forward AND has given me a hope of eternal life.

    For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (‭Romans‬ ‭6‬:‭23‬ KJV)

  5. 24. ‘O Sovereign LORD, you have only begun to show your greatness and the strength of your hand to me, your servant. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can perform such great and mighty deeds as you do? NLT

    O Sovereign Lord, you have done greet and mighty deeds for POFW, and there is no god in heaven or in earth that can do what You have done; however, You have only begun to show what You really can do and are going to do among us. We eagerly anticipate experiencing what You have in store for us!

  6. 21 commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the Lord your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the Lord do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest.

    22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    God Had proven His power and provision over their lives, time and time again. So, there was no reason to fear anything that came their way.

    It is so easy for some people to talk themselves out of their blessing because they are afraid of what might happen. One thought could cost you more than one step. For the situation your fighting may not be the same as your last fight but the principle of the battle and the power that is within you are the same.

    You overcame once you will do it again; just put it in His hands.

  7. No enemy powerful enough to take you on. You don’t even have to fight just have faith for the victory. The lord is for you and had plans for you!

  8. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.
    I speak for myself how many times have I/we feared our battle and down deep we know God will fight for us. However, I think if we put ourselves in a situation knowing that it is wrong and then ask God for help he may let us sweat it out. Be careful that you are I am not putting ourselves in a situation that we can’t get out of. God will fight our battles if we let him and stay out of the way. It is time we quit saying how build our problems are and let our problems know how BIG OUR GOD is….

  9. EVERY portion of land was either taken or given by GOD. Why? because it’s all HIS!!!
    It was taken because of some kind of sin, whether it be idolatry , rebellion, “big sin “or “small sin” Land was given because HE chose to bless them and because of Obedience to GOD!!! Whyyyyyyy? Because HE DOES AS HE PLEASES!!! =D HALELUJAH!!!

    Psalm 24:1 KJV
    A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

  10. GrOw ANYWAY

    5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.
    6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.
    7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.

    What hinders? We ask for a WORD, we get IT. We ask for a SIGN, we get IT. We ask for confirmation, we get IT.

    We see opposition, we forget IT.

    We start over.

    We must stop looking at the walls, gates, bars and fences and focus only on the WORD of the LORD.

    As they obeyed the LORD and turned Northward, opposition arose, however they did not stop, slow down or retreat. We must have, show and live FAITH in GOD and HIS WORD.

    Praise your way through the test, the storm, the valley, the battle, the uncertainty, the frustration, the disappointment, the opposition. We must be determined to GrOw ANYWAY.

    GOD has promised, GOD has given.

    Lets GrOw!

  11. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you
    How victorious we are as the people of God we don’t have to fight our own battles. God fights for us there is no need for us too be stressed out are under pressure God goes before us and fights for us all we must do is pray believe and have faith that God has everything in control.

  12. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    Are we in the way of the Lord? Are we trying to do things on our own and end up messing things up worse? There are many scriptures of how the Lord will fight our battles; the battle is not with flesh and blood, etc… Yet, when something happens, here we are in the middle of things with our “dukes” up.

    As the hair club for men commercial used to state: “I am not only a member I am the president.” I am not preaching to the choir, I am re-edifying my own mind. This battle is not mine. My God goes before me. It is my job to wait upon the Lord – Ugh!

  13. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    No matter what you are facing, we bow to Jevohvah Nissi! He is our banner. He goes before us in every battle.

  14. 2 And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

    3 So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.

    4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.

    It is amazing the strength one feels when they receive a clear word from the Lord. They were given specific instructions what to do, and when they were obedient, they overtook threescore cities and were victorious.

    Whatever mountain, test, storm, situation in life we are facing we can search out His word to give us direction on how to approach.

    A song from the McGruders came to mind today as I read this chapter:

    Stand On His Word
    1.
    I know for sure that life it can let you down
    And those voices in your head start to pound
    Tho there’s pain and woe about you
    Consider everything you’ve heard
    When you’ve done all you can stand on His Word

    Cho
    When you’ve done all that you can
    Stand on His Word
    When you’ve stood all you can stand
    Do what you’ve learned
    Remember all you’ve read is true
    God said he’ll always bring you thru
    In spite of everything you’ve heard
    Stand on his word

    2.
    Like satan came to Job he’s gonna come to you
    Accusing God denying faith is true
    Yet in life’s darkest trials God understands
    Trust in His Holy Word and stand on His Word

  15. Deut. 3:21-22 (NLT)
    “At that time I gave Joshua this charge: You have seen for yourself everything the LORD your God has done to these two kings. He will do the same to all the kingdoms on the west side of the Jordan. Do not be afraid of the nations there, for the LORD your God will fight for you.”

    I was thinking POFW: Just as God has and is fighting our battles for us here at 6605 Silver Saddle Rd., there will be new battles and challenges to face at 10264 Westpoint Blvd. BUT remember: As we enter our new land, God will be fighting for us there.

    God is fighting for us
    God is on our side
    He has overcome, yes
    He has overcome
    We will not be shaken
    We will not be moved
    JESUS you are here

  16. 24 O Lord God, thou hast begun to shew thy servant thy greatness, and thy mighty hand: for what God is there in heaven or in earth, that can do according to thy works, and according to thy might?

    There is no other god that can match our God. Satan tries to copy, but he is not the Almighty. Moses wasn’t able to go over the Jordan and see this land of promise, but in his mercy, God allowed him to view it with his eyes. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from going into the promises of God and possessing your miracles.

  17. 24. ‘O Sovereign LORD, you have only begun to show your greatness and the strength of your hand to me, your servant. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can perform such great and mighty deeds as you do? NLT

    O Sovereign Lord, you have done greet and mighty deeds for POFW, and there is no god in heaven or in earth that can do what You have done; however, You have only begun to show what You really can do and are going to do among us. We eagerly anticipate experiencing what You have in store for us!

  18. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    If God be for us, who can be against us? As long as we have God on our side we shall not fear anything that comes our way!!

  19. 3 So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.

    To repent means to ask God for forgiveness and totally turn away from it once you repent God has forgiven you and delivered you from that sin!!

  20. DON’T FEAR THE WALL

    3 So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.
    4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan.
    5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.
    6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.
    7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves.

    It is obvious that if we stay within the will of God; He will destroy the walls for us to conquer. He has shown us battle after battle that He will fight for us. Then why don’t we trust. Romans 8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? Let us learn and remember that there is no walls that will detain the purpose of our God. Matthew 6:10 Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Let us then stand against the wall and watch it tumble down. Matt 16:18 And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

    Lord help us NOT be intimidated by the size of a wall but be determined by your Spirit that this too shall be destroyed by Your Power Alone. In Jesus Name Amen

  21. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    GLORY!!! We should not fear when we are going into the deep waters for the Lord is with us. God will stand up for us when we are weak, God has given us power to defeat and witness everyone about Jesus!

    10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10
    The LORD himself will fight for you. Just stay calm.” Exodus 14:14
    “Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid or tremble at them, for the LORD your God is the one who goes with you He will not fail you or forsake you.” Deut 31:6

    Love these verses…when you feel like everything is going wrong and you feel scared just remember that is not of God!!! For we are more than conquers and the Lord will not let us go through something to fail us. Hallelujah!!!

  22. Deuteronomy 3:23
    “At that time i pleaded with the lord and said, ‘O sovereign LORD, You have only begun to show your greatness and the strength of your hand for me, Your servant. Is there any god in heaven or on earth who can preform such great and mighty as you do?”

    When at the bad times remember that has blessed you before and he will never leave you.

  23. But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

    Be encouraged and stay focused on the task at hand. Get ready. We are moving into our promise.

  24. 2 And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

    2 Thessalonians 2:1-2
    Now we beseech you, brethen, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him. That ye be not shaken in mind or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand.

  25. 22 ye shall not fear them : for the lord you God he shall fight for you

    To many times we try to fight our battle on are own but little do we know God is already on the battlefield fighting for us he’s pushing back the darkness, pushing back our are problems and fears I am so glad and bless that God is fighting for us I can truly say that there No other GOd that will fight for us like he does or died for us

  26. You have Giants in your life, remember the battle is the Lords!

    13 And the rest of Gilead, and all Bashan, being the kingdom of Og, gave I unto the half tribe of Manasseh; all the region of Argob, with all Bashan, which was called the land of giants.

    22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    “Give that battle to God”…………..

  27. 18 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The Lord your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.
    Hallelujah! This land is ours! We going to save this city in Jesus name!

  28. Deuteronomy 3:18-20
    18 “At that time I gave this command to the tribes that would live east of the Jordan: ‘Although the Lord your God has given you this land as your property, all your fighting men must cross the Jordan ahead of your Israelite relatives, armed and ready to assist them. 19 Your wives, children, and numerous livestock, however, may stay behind in the towns I have given you. 20 When the Lord has given security to the rest of the Israelites, as he has to you, and when they occupy the land the Lord your God is giving them across the Jordan River, then you may all return here to the land I have given you.’

    Don’t forget your neighbor.
    Before they crossed the Jordan they were reminded that they were to ensure their brothers captured and conquered their land just as they had.
    The tribes already had land, livestock, and could have stopped and lived comfortably while the rest went on to fight.

    God may have blessed us mightily to a point we can relax and live comfortably but there is a war that is continuing to rage.

    We must never forget our neighbor. They still haven’t made it to their promise and they need us to help to conquer their enemies.

    It isn’t time to settle and coast. It’s time to look at the promises we will one day live in and say that there is still a battle and others need us.

  29. 22 Do not be afraid of the nations there, for the Lord your God will fight for you.’ (NLT)

    We have nothing to fear!

    Exodus 14:14
    The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

  30. But the Lord told me, ‘Do not be afraid of him, for I have given you victory over Og and his entire army, and I will give you all his land. Treat him just as you treated King Sihon of the Amorites, who ruled in Heshbon.’
    Deuteronomy 3:2 NLT
    http://bible.com/116/deu.3.2.NLT

    The testimony of your victories should encourage you and others. The many battles that one has overcome by the hand of the Lord shoukd encourage us and motivate us. It is the Lord that fights our battlesnas long as we are on the Lord’s side. If God is for us who can be against us.

  31. 18 And I commanded you at that time, saying, The Lord your God hath given you this land to possess it: ye shall pass over armed before your brethren the children of Israel, all that are meet for the war.

    19 But your wives, and your little ones, and your cattle, (for I know that ye have much cattle,) shall abide in your cities which I have given you;

    20 Until the Lord have given rest unto your brethren, as well as unto you, and until they also possess the land which the Lord your God hath given them beyond Jordan: and then shall ye return every man unto his possession, which I have given you.

  32. 26 But the Lord was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.

    Moses still unwilling to admit his own sin, as he is the one who chose to smite the rock, and repent, therefore he is still not allowed to enter the promise land.
    How many of us today allow our pride to keep us from repenting and getting to live in the promises that Jesus has for us???

  33. God has got his people covered. Even when we think a situation seems impossible, God reminds that nothing is impossible through him. The enemy would love for you to feel left alone and neglected, but God’s word declare that we are not alone. Our hope is in Jesus and with God on our side we shall win.

  34. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.

    Our battles may not be against godless armies , but they are just as real as Joshua’s , whether we are resisting temptation or battling Fear, God has promised to fight with us and for us , as we place our faith and and confindence in him .

  35. We must be careful to what voices we are listening to and allowing to give us direction. Listening to the wrong voice can cause distraction, confusion and also loss for everything of God. It can also cause us go backwards and not northward!

  36. “Don’t be afraid of them. The Lord your God himself will fight for you.””
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭3:22‬ ‭NIRV‬‬

    Thankful for God personally fight for us! 

  37. 5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many.

    6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city.

    I remember when the Lord spoke to POFW about when “the sound of an army marching,” based on 2 Samuel 5:23-25

    23 And when David enquired of the Lord, he said, Thou shalt not go up; but fetch a compass behind them, and come upon them over against the mulberry trees.

    24 And let it be, when thou hearest the sound of a going in the tops of the mulberry trees, that then thou shalt bestir thyself: for then shall the Lord go out before thee, to smite the host of the Philistines.

    25 And David did so, as the Lord had commanded him; and smote the Philistines from Geba until thou come to Gazer.

    When the church is united in prayer and moves into that place of praise and worship where we hear the “sound in the mulberry trees,” we know God has gone before us into battle. Last Sunday night, we experienced a time of praise when I felt like I could hear that sound of marching. God was moving and doing thing ahead of us that we couldn’t even see yet.

    Today’s chapter in v5-6 challenged me because when the children of Israel went forth to conquer, they overcome every last person that was before them. How many times when we think of reaching this region with the gospel do we think “we can only reach some of them?” But what if God already has plans for us to be able to reach every man, woman, and child of this region? Not every one of them may choose to respond but that doesn’t mean they haven’t heard the gospel.

    When we hear the marching and know God is going before us, the battle is only partially won; we still must follow the Lord into the place of spiritual warfare and claim the territory God has placed before us. Every single soul in this region needs the gospel, and with God every single one of them can have the opportunity to hear it, so long as we do our part and not turn back or lose faith as the children of Israel originally did.

    Acts 19:10
    And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.

  38. “But the Lord was wroth with me for your sakes, and would not hear me: and the Lord said unto me, Let it suffice thee; speak no more unto me of this matter.” The word of God (Jesus) states that he was told to leave it alone. One would be wise too first consider the cost, before continuing on (stubbornly push). Dear God help us (me) to heed your voice (warning). God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  39. “But GOD was still angry with me because of you. He wouldn’t listen. He said, “Enough of that. Not another word from you on this. Climb to the top of Mount Pisgah and look around: look west, north, south, east. Take in the land with your own eyes. Take a good look because you’re not going to cross this Jordan.”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭3:26-27‬ ‭MSG‬‬
    http://bible.com/97/deu.3.26-27.msg

    Some things we do can really mess up our future. One bad decision can change the rest of your life. It may also change your destiny. Let us live in a way that glorifies God and may we make sound decisions in everyday life.

  40. 21 And I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, Thine eyes have seen all that the Lord your God hath done unto these two kings: so shall the Lord do unto all the kingdoms whither thou passest. 22 Ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.
    Joshua was simply told, remember.

    The Lord has done great and mighty miracles (recently) that many have also seen with their own eyes. This is all the more reason why we should not be fearful or doubt. God help us to clearly see and hear, in Jesus name.

  41. 27 Get thee up into the top of Pisgah, and lift up thine eyes westward, and northward, and southward, and eastward, and behold it with thine eyes: for thou shalt not go over this Jordan.

    28 But charge Joshua, and encourage him, and strengthen him: for he shall go over before this people, and he shall cause them to inherit the land which thou shalt see.

    It can be hard to see someone else doing what you know you were suppose to do because of disobedience

  42. Moses’ mesage to the Israelites is almost over. So far, he has reviewed the Israelite history and reminded them of their failures and victories. I love his approach because before we can move toward we need to evaluate ourselves. Where our success was and failures to learn from them as we move toward. It helps them and us determine where we’ve been, where we are, and where we are going. He is preparing the Israelites to conquer and possess Canaan. Moses encourages them with a promise of the peace and rest that is to come. Moses knows that posessing the promised land will and their homeless wandering and bring the Israelites peace and stability. Obedience to Gods Word, even in the midst of conflict and struggle, allows the hearts to rest and find shelter in Gods leadership. The battle may surround us, but there is peace in the promise: “My Presence will go with you, and I will give you rest.” (Ex 33:14).

  43. 2 And the Lord said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon.

    3 So the Lord our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining.

  44. Verses 21-22 MSG “I commanded Joshua at that time, “You’ve seen with your own two eyes everything God, your God, has done to these two kings. God is going to do the same thing to all the kingdoms over there across the river where you’re headed. Don’t be afraid of them. God, your God—he’s fighting for you.” Same verses AMP “I commanded Joshua at that time, saying, ‘Your eyes have seen everything that the Lord your God has done to these two kings [Sihon and Og]; so the Lord shall do the same to all the kingdoms into which you are about to cross. Do not fear them, for it is the Lord your God who is fighting for you.’”

    Isaiah 41:10 AMP says “Do not fear [anything], for I am with you; Do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, be assured I will help you; I will certainly take hold of you with My righteous right hand [a hand of justice, of power, of victory, of salvation].’”

  45. 22 Do not be afraid of them; the Lord your God himself will fight for you.”

    This reminded me of a song we sing saying
    God is fighting for us. Pushing back the darkness. Lighting up the kingdom that can not be shaken. In the name of Jesus enemy is defeated and we will shout it out shout it out!
    Who are we to fear?! God is on our side! Like many of the armies in the bible that God was with they won every battle. Other armies feared and ran away from the army of God because they know God will win! Thank you God for fighting for me! What a mighty God we serve!

  46. 22Do not be afraid of the nations there, for the LORD your God will fight for you.’

    What is there to fear, with God on your side!

  47. “For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbah of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.”
    ‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭3:11‬ ‭KJV

    The Sleepy Guy
    Oh was know for his bed. He was a giant, but the bible talks about his bed. He must have been lazy and consumed with self because how it spoke of him. We must look at hat spirit of Og, laziness, in our own lives and defeat him and too. It’s only when we look back at the stuff I. Our lives and refuse to give in to laziness in different situations that Og is defeated in our own lives.
