And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram's horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. (Joshua 6:5 KJV)
We must learn to be obedient to God!
While fingering through the pages of my bible this morning, I was led to a powerful study in the book of Joshua 6. God was setting up Joshua and his people to conquer Jericho. The instructions given to Joshua by the Father were clear and concise. If he wanted to triumph, he had to be completely obedient.
When the time came, Joshua carried out God's instructions PRECISELY and this led to a massive BREAKTHROUGH for the children of Israel. Without throwing a bomb, and by just marching and praising God, the high walls of Jericho came tumbling down with ease.
What a God!
Just like how those walls came tumbling down with ease, there are some walls and barriers in your life that you want to fall. They are stressing you. They are burdening you. They are scaring you. They have you constantly worried.
If you are a believer in Christ, there is something I can remind you of. God wants to cause your walls to tumble too, but you must be COMPLETELY OBEDIENT to him, his word and his instructions. Many of us fail to see our walls come tumbling down because we want God to answer with a Breakthrough and we don't want to follow his clear instructions in the word.
It can't work like that my friends. OBEDIENCE THEN BREAKTHROUGH!
Why not give that formula a try TODAY, and like the walls of Jericho which fell flat, your walls of problems will fall FLAT too and you would be victorious.
God's waiting for your obedience!
