Good Morning Warrior!
Word For The Day:
(Joshua 5:13 - 6:27)
“I Have Given You The City”
Text: Joshua 6:2
“And the LORD said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor.”
“I Have Given You The City,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Joshua meets his Commander, The Commander of the Lord’s Army; and the Lord says to him “See! I’ve Given You The City.”
God had already conquered Jericho by fear and panic among the people. They watched these tens of thousands of Warriors walk through the flooded Jordan River ON DRY GROUND. And now Joshua and his Warriors are Marching in orderly ranks of Warriors silently around these walls of Jericho for six days. Can you feel the Fear and Terror rising among Jericho’s people? Fear is Escalating for six days and on the seventh day - 7 times these a Warriors circled the city and with one long blast on the trumpets and a horrific shout of Faith the walls Jericho trusted in “fell inward,” on top of them! Archeological studies show these walls fell inward not outward.
God gave Joshua the City because Joshua had a surrender heart of obedience.
Listen up Warrior! When we walk with God with a surrendered heart of Obedience, God Will Give Us The City, The Soul, and the Target of Our Prayer! Oooh Rah! When we March around the walls of the target of our Prayer, day after day, with asking, seeking, and knocking prayer; the panic and fear in hell escalates every moment we persist in our March of Faith!
What does this Surrendered Heart of Joshua look like? A Surrendered heart wants what God wants more than what I want. That’s why we ask for “God’s Will to be done, not our will!” We Know God always knows what is best for us. This is how our Commander Jesus prayed so that’s how His Warriors pray - with a Surrendered Heart of obedience.
We follow His instructions, even when they don’t make sense to us. March around a wall silently or walk among people silently in prayer. When He Commands us to blow the trumpet and shout - we open our mouth and announce the warning of the Gospel with the shout of Faith; giving them our reason for this Hope that is within our heart! Ooooh Rah!
Hear the Voice of Your Commander, Warrior.... “See! I Have Given You The City!” Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
