Good Morning Warrior!
Hallelujah, It’s The Lord’s Day!
“Walking in the Counsel of God”
Text: Joshua 9:14
“Then the men of Israel took some of their provisions; but they did not ask counsel of the LORD.”
“Walking in the Counsel of the Lord” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Jericho was the strongest of all the Canaanite cities, but it fell before Israel because they were Obediently Walking in the Counsel of God! The failure at Ai, and Gilgal today, was because Israel was Not Walking in the Counsel of God. They did not “ask counsel of the Lord” before they advanced upon Ai. If they had asked counsel of the Lord He would have told Joshua that there was sin in the camp!
If they would have asked counsel of the Lord at Gilgal, God would have told them these Gibeonites were lying.
We see a pattern here in Not seeking the counsel of the Lord; they trusted their senses more than they trusted the Lord, Walking by Sight instead of Walking by Faith.
By seeking the counsel of the Lord in prayer, and obediently walking in agreement with His Counsel We are Walking In The Footsteps Of Our Commander!
God says to you and I “Follow Me and I’ll Lead You Through This Fight To Victory!”
I can hear God say to us this morning:
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”(Prov.3:5-6)
In other words:
“Trust Me with all your heart and stop depending on your own efforts; acknowledge Me and seek My counsel in all your decisions and I’ll direct your Pathway To Victory!
Listen up Warrior! The Warrior depends upon the counsel of God! We Seek It! We Receive It!We Obey It! And We Walk In It With Our Commander Leading You and I to Victory over the “Red Seas,” and the “Jordan Rivers” of our Life; Because You and I Are Walking In The Counsel of God! Ooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
