Prepare for Attack (4)

Prepare for Attack (4)

 “What message does my Lord have for his servant?”’ Joshua 5:14 NIV

Some issues are so crucial that until you have resolved them you cannot move forward or enjoy God’s blessing in your life.

Joshua faced such an issue when he stood before the towering walls of Jericho, the strongest city in the Promised Land and the first that had to be conquered.

We read: ’Now when Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand.

Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”

“Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the Lord I have now come.”

Then Joshua fell facedown to the ground in reverence, and asked him, “What message does my Lord[a] have for his servant?” The commander of the Lord’s army replied, “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy.”

And Joshua did so’ (vv. 13-15 KJV).

So, what is your Jericho? What’s the one big battle you must win in order to fulfill what God has planned for your life?

Some battles can only be won on your knees.

Before His victory at the cross, Christ, Who is our example, spent His toughest night in Gethsemane praying, ‘…not my will, but yours be done”’ (Luke 22:42 KJV).

Are you intimidated by the size of the challenge? Do you think you don’t have what it takes?

Does it feel like you have been going round in circles and getting nowhere? Have a break.

Get alone with God, and stay in His presence until He gives you His plan.

Then say yes to it, and He will empower you.
