"And when they make a long blast with theram's horn, when you hear the sound of the trumpet, then all the people shall shout with a great shout, and the wall of the city will fall down flat." Joshua 6:5, ESV
PRAISE BRINGS DOWN WALLS
Jericho was the last city that stood between the Israelites and the Promised Land. Its towering city walls were so wide that chariots rode on top of them. It looked impossible.
God told Joshua to have them march around the wall for six days, then on the seventh day on the seventh time around, they were to give a great shout of praise. It didn't make sense to them, but God was saying, "If you'll praise Me while the wall is still standing, you'll see things begin to change."
There's always a Jericho that stands between you and your Promised Land, one last obstacle that looks insurmountable. Will you trust God enough to praise Him in spite of a bad medical report, to thank Him for freedom when you still have the addiction?
You're so close, but you don't see how you can get passed it. Don't complain. Turn up your praise. Praise is what's going to bring the wall down.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
"Father, thank You that no obstacle is so high and wide that it can withstand Your touch. Thank You that You're fighting my battles, and You hold victory in store for the upright. I believe that You will get me to where I'm supposed to be. In Jesus' Name, Amen."
