WANT MORE? GOT IT Part 2
Just yesterday we listened to Ephraim's pity party. "They have iron chariots!" They failed in their God-given mission to drive out the inhabits of the land.
Today Dan tells a different story. Oh, Joshua does tell us that the Danites failed to get rid of the Amorites on the plain. But they didn't give up. They suited up and went to war, attacking and taking the town of Leshem. I'm not entirely clear from the context if Leshem was on the plain or in the mountains, but they grabbed ahold of God's promise and found themselves a place to live.
The Danites weren't perfect. They struggled with defeating the people of the plains. But they persevered and won a victory. When they defeated Leshem, God and His angels celebrated with them.
