Bible Reading: Joshua 1:1-8; Matthew 19:26
Memory verse: Matthew 19:26, ‘“But Jesus looked at them and said to them, ‘With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”
The children of Israel spent 40 years wandering in the wilderness until the previous generation died off because they had doubted the promises of God. By the time they crossed the Jordan River under Joshua’s leadership, they were looking forward to entering the Promised Land, a land flowing with milk and honey. However, there was one problem, the wall of Jericho! It was so thick that horses could ride on it. In Joshua 6, we understand the gates of Jericho were securely shut, so that no one could go in or out of the city. In the mind of the enemy, he had succeeded in keeping Israel out of their destiny.
Sometimes in life, we are at the threshold of our breakthrough, but impossibility looms before us, staring us in the face. Yet, when God spoke to Joshua, He told him, “See I have delivered them into your hands”. Wow, from God’s perspective, it was done. What did Joshua need to do?
1. See with eyes of faith like God
2. Get a strategy for victory from God
3. Do exactly what God asked him to do
4. Shout for victory before the walls came down
In every situation we find ourselves, let us remember that there are no impossibilities with God, and that faith will bring our answers from the spiritual realm to the physical. When we ask according to His word, He hears and answers but if we fail to exercise our faith, we may never see the manifestation of what we desired of Him. Just like Joshua did, learn to pray, listen for a strategy, do what God asks of you, and shout for victory. When we believe, all things are possible. Glory to God!
