Shout! For the LORD Has Given You The City

“On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city seven times. The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet blast, Joshua commanded the people, Shout! For the LORD Has Given You the City!” ~ Joshua 6: 15-16

For the previous six days, the Israelites were walking around this huge wall with soldiers on top armed for battle. The wall was so thick chariots patrolled from its top. The enemy’s stronghold seemed impenetrable to anyone who came against it. Yet the Israelites, under God’s direction, walked around. We as Christians sometimes feel that way. The enemy has a stronghold in our life, we’re under spiritual attack, and it seems useless to fight against it. But we can’t be intimidated, we have to continue to circle the enemy’s camp in prayer.

Watch this now. On the seventh day, they walk around seven times, no one is talking, not a sound is being made. What strange little people, this is no way to fight a battle. Don’t they know, it’s arrows, and swords, and spears that will win the war? Don’t they know that it’s siege weapons that will bring this mammoth wall down? Yet they circle in reverent silence.

Sometimes, the things we must do to achieve greatness is not quickly realized by others. We must pray and fast. Give up some TV time and some leisure time in order to dislodge the enemy from our affairs. Some folk will consider us strange and confused, but one day the trumpet will sound, and the LORD will say shout! I have given you the city! This is your breakthrough! This is your time of success! Can you hear the trumpet sounding? Is today your day to shout? Why not, go on, shout for the LORD has given you the city.

Heavenly Father, please help us to listen for Your voice, to do exactly as instructed no matter how strange it may appear to our self or to others. Give us the strength and the confidence to obey, and the grace to trust.

Thank You, Father, for our coming breakthrough and our very great success.

In Jesus name, I pray, Amen.
