Joshua 2:11 continues with this astonishing record of Rahab’s faith and God’s provision for a woman in an evil city. She said in verse 11 that the courage of the enemy was taken away because of the children of Israel and because of the Lord, your God. This is a side of spiritual warfare that must be seen. So many see spiritual enemies as the aggressor with the power to initiate warfare and destroy the child of God. In this text, the courage of the enemy is gone because they know the Lord is our God. She says the people in the city know that our God is God in heaven and earth. The connection between the God of heaven and earth and God’s people is seen in these words, “Because of your God.” It is this union between God and His people which brings extreme frustration in the plans of our enemies. Satan is the prince of the power of the atmospheric heaven, yet our God is God in that heaven. Satan comes to earth with his claims on our lives, families, and finances. Yet, our God is God on Earth. What a protection and a preservation to know that our God reigns, and we are under the glory of His Kingdom.
