LOOKING FOR A BREAKTHROUGH? Joshua 6:1-20
"When the trumpets sounded, the people shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the people gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so every man charged straight in, and they took the city." Joshua 6:20
“Have you ever needed a breakthrough in your life? Or some kind of deliverance? Perhaps you or your situation needed to be transformed, but you were facing a wall as high as the one surrounding Jericho. As far as you could see, there seemed to be no way through it.
The good thing about knowing that you need much more than your own strength in order to break down the walls in your life is that it forces you to rely on the power of God to set you free. And His deliverance and freedom are always far beyond what we can imagine. God wants you to depend on Him and His power whenever you face obstacles in your life. So each time you find that you can’t seem to move beyond something you are facing, DETERMINE TO GO DEEPER INTO GOD’S WORD. COMMIT TO EVEN MORE FERVENT PRAYER. DECIDE TO GIVE GOD HEARTFELT WORSHIP REGARDLESS OF WHAT IS HAPPENING.
Those 3 steps of obedience are powerful and will destroy whatever is standing in the way of your moving into all God has for you.
The Israelites walked around the city of Jericho 13 times in one week. So don’t just stand looking at the walls that are obstructing you. Start encircling them with shouts of praise today and every day for AS LONG AS IT TAKES.
Prayer: Father God, I depend on You to help me overcome the obstacles in my life. Teach me to speak Your Word in power as I cover each situation in prayer. I lift up praise to You in the face of impossible circumstances because You are the God of the impossible. No matter what comes against me, Your power is more than enough to break through it to victory.”
