Despite the fact that the Israelites were indeed on their way to the land God had promised them, they continued to face battles on many sides. Reminds one of the passage 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed.
Here is an account of one of the battles Moses and the Israelites faced on their way to the promised land. We see how the lord kept showing up and fighting their battles.
God Bless You!
