…And the Walls Fell Down

20 May

“Shout! For the Lord has already given you the town… So they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed.” -Joshua 6:16,20

As I read through the story of Joshua leading the Israelites to victory in Jericho I couldn’t help but think of how this is so much more than just a historical account of battle. Scripture is timeless, and it speaks so clearly to us in a modern context as well.

Joshua is reminding us of our victory in Christ. We have already won the battle. In fact, it was won before we were born. The battle for your soul was won on the Cross at Calvary, and your salvation was secure the moment you said “yes” to Jesus, accepting Him as Savior. The victory is His forever; Satan doesn’t stand a chance. The end of the story of this earth was written before our personal beginning, and we can take comfort in knowing that we will win.

So “the Lord has already given you the town”… but I’m wondering if we have any unclaimed victories in our lives. Where are you allowing the enemy to convince you that you have lost? That you can never reclaim control? That you can never change? That you will never win? Where are you allowing Satan to label you a “loser”, someone without a powerful destiny?

Reclaim your victory today! The devil is slain! Shout loudly and boldly in the name of Jesus and remind the great deceiver that he has no power in your life! Expose his lies and watch the walls of Jericho in your own life come crashing to the ground! And when your own walls have been shattered you will be free to shout loudly for those who cannot shout for themselves. You will be able to scream in the name of justice on the behalf of the oppressed. By the blood of the Lamb walls of injustice, violence, fear, hatred, addiction, oppression, shame, confusion, and pride will crumble into dust. Only the truth of God will stand.

The Lord has promised you victory. Step out boldly in faith and claim this truth in your own life. The Lord always keeps His promises.

    This is wonderful, I want our God to crash my walls down and keep me open and receptive to him!
