What the Lord Does to Others Because of You

Granted the Lord punished the inhabitants of the Land of Canaan for their sin, but listen to Joshua explain to the elders another reason why the Lord fought the Canaanites, “You have seen all that the LORD your God has done to all these nations because of you, for the LORD your God is He who has fought for you” (Joshua 23:3).
Israel was of Abraham. Therefore, whoever opposed them, God opposed. Whoever blessed them, God blessed.
Similarly, Christians are children of Abraham (Galatians 3:29). Therefore, whoever opposes us, God opposes and whoever blesses us, God blesses.
That means you should live fearlessly in this present world, but not arrogantly, because it ultimately is all about God, not us.
