Mt Deliverance Worship Center sermon.
It rains on the just and the unjust alike. Things may happen in your life just because it is life. God has a reason and purpose and He does not lose a battle.
God told Joshua that the battle was won, but Joshua still had to walk around Jericho. He had to trust and believe God and Israel had to trust and believe Joshua because the word was given to him and not all the people. Joshua had faith.
Jericho was the strongest city in the Canaan world. The long blast of the shofar for Jericho was the same blast for the year of Jubilee. Freedom! They knew what God was proclaiming.
When the mountain is on top of you, can you still praise the Lord? The Lord inhabits the praises of His people. The greatest things come by prayer and fasting.
The battle we are going through is not ours, but the Lord’s.
Israel had to walk an worship, but there were great walls to ascend before the city could be taken. The walls that prevented them from gelling in were what they used to get in. God flattened those walls into a ramp!
When you are obedient to God, His hedge of protection is all around you. To move in His anointing is to move in His protection.
