Walk Prophetically and Embrace Your Victory (Morning)
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go. “
After Moses’ death, God chose Joshua as his successor to lead Israelites. In Joshua 1: 3 God said to Joshua, that every land he stepped on will be given to him and his descendants. But after he received GOD’s blessing and promise he encountered his first challenge: to cross a flooding Jordan River. His first obstacle was to take over Canaan. But he still had hope and commanded his people to do the impossible, they will cross it. To persuade tens of thousands of people to do the impossible is absurd, but here we see his devotion and his courage. Joshua and the Israelites didn’t stay idle but they pursue His promise, their rights.
After the priests of Levi lifted the Ark and preparing to step in the raging Jordan River, nothing happened. But when the priests’ feet touched the water, the miracle happened. It’s just like Moses and his Red Sea miracle all over again but on a smaller scale. Because of this, the Israelites were able to cross in dry ground. This proves that when they dare to walk by faith, everything could happen. This first step was becoming the cornerstone for another miracle to happen, until the time when they took over Canaan.
There’s a time when you felt loss just like Joshua when Moses left him. Don’t be afraid, keep looking at Him and His promise. Look far beyond the horizon and walk prophetically. When you have the courage to do so, it’s only a matter of time when Joshua’s miracles could happen in your life.
BEING ABLE to see His promise is not enough, you also must have BRAVERY AND COURAGE TO TAKE PROPHETIC STEPS.
1. How did you fight for His promise in your life?
2. What should you do to walk prophetically?
3. What are things that encourage you to take action? Share it with your cell group.
“Holy Spirit, we are grateful for Your promise in our lives. With You, we will be enabled to fulfill it. Give us strength and courage to see Your promised land in our lives. To make it our goal and fight for it. In the name of Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.”
