How can I find victory over an impregnable enemy who appears strong and not easily taken by force?
The key to success over Lachish can befound in this enemy’s first name.

“Japhia” means “shine”.
Lachish wants to shine his strong imprisonment of distractions into my heart; causing me to battle with him all day.
“Can you please let the dog in the back door?” “Do we have anymore paper towels?” or my personal favorite, “Is it time to eat again?”
Like Joshua, when I meditate, ponder, and store up God’s Word in my heart, I’m empowered with the strongest shield of Light and impregnable defensed against any battlefield tactic or diversion the king of Lachish can cause in my day.
