// Read Judges 1:1-7 //

After the death of Joshua, the Israelites asked the Lord, “Who of us is to go up first to fight against the Canaanites?”

The Lord answered, “Judah shall go up; I have given the land into their hands.”

The men of Judah then said to the Simeonites their fellow Israelites, “Come up with us into the territory allotted to us, to fight against the Canaanites. We in turn will go with you into yours.” So the Simeoniteswent with them.

When Judah attacked, the Lord gave the Canaanites and Perizzites into their hands, and they struck down ten thousand men at Bezek. It was there that they found Adoni-Bezek and fought against him, putting to rout the Canaanites and Perizzites. Adoni-Bezek fled, but they chased him and caught him, and cut off his thumbs and big toes.

Then Adoni-Bezek said, “Seventy kings with their thumbs and big toes cut off have picked up scraps under my table. Now God has paid me back for what I did to them.” They brought him to Jerusalem, and he died there.

The above scripture shows the principles you have to follow if you are going to win the battle of life.
1. Enquire of the Lord vs 1
2. Let Praise go from you first vs 2
3. Call others to join in the battle, your Simeonites (Networking) vs 3
4. Pursue the captain of the fight (the head) vs 6
5. Destroy instability by cutting his toes vs 6
Put this to use in engaging the enemy and walking into victory will be possible.
Prayer: Father, I receive grace to win the battle of life.
