When the enemy is ruling in the land or promise that the Lord had given to us then we must go out to battle for it. ( the enemy will oppose)
The Lord tells us in his word to not be afraid of the giants or strongholds.
Do not be afraid of the challenges! Remember the past victories that the Lord has given you! Deuteronomy 20:1
“Let not your hearts faint, fear not, and do not tremble, neither be ye terrified because of them.” Deuteronomy 20:3
When the Lord had given you a promise (his promises are yes and amen) then the Lord will fight for you to attain that promise. He goes before you into battle! The Lord is our Savior! He is our deliverer!
For the Lord your God is he that goeth with you, to fight for you against your enemies, to save you. Deuteronomy 20:4
Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. Deuteronomy 31:6
Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you! Joshua 1:3
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19
Remember that our high priest and mediator Jesus Christ is praying to the Father for us! We need not fear!
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15
The Lord told Joshua to go and take the land.
God said that he would be with him in spite of all the obstacles he was facing. The voice of our high priest tells us in his word to go forth into battle against our enemies without fear. He will go before us to defeat the giants and we shall be victorious!
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9
Joshua and his army obeyed God. They went fearlessly to battle.
They won the victory because they refused to listen to negative reports but rather they chose to believe God’s word.
They refused to consider how big the giants were because they knew how big their God was.
With bold faith, dedication and perseverance Joshua and his army fearlessly went to battle against tremendous odds.
The enemy is a thief and a squatter. He must be booted out of our territory!
It is only by trusting in the Lord’s ability to fight for us that we are guaranteed to have a successful outcome.
When we keep our eyes on Jesus and not the bigness of the problem, our promise is sure to come! Our enemy is forced to submit to God’s rule whether they like it or not.
Since our fight is not with flesh and blood but with spiritual wickedness opposed to us we must use God’s weapons to fight.
Our weapons are not human weapons. We cannot fight a supernatural phenomenon with our own devices. We cannot defeat the giants of infirmity, debt, lack, or affliction by our own ingenuity or intellectual prowess .
We take up spiritual weapons that are mighty through God to pull down the enemy’s strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4
We take up the sword of the Spirit to cut down the lies of the enemy. We take up the sheild of faith by trusting in God’s word.
We preserve in prayer and do not faint until the Lord brings the stronghold down. Ephesians 6:10-18
We will achieve the victory because we are more than conquerors through Christ who loved us and gave himself for us. Romans 8:37-39
Rise up and put the sword of the Spirit to the devil’s throat. Make him bow down in submission to God’s word.
Our enemy has no choice but to back off when God is on our side. If God is for us then who can be against us? Romans 8:31.
Is the enemy reigning in your land? Then rise up in faith and pray.
Stand on the promises of God our Savior.
God has given his people the weapons of our warfare to fight the good fight of faith.
Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies. Psalms 108:13
With the Lord fighting for us in the spiritual realm the enemy strong holds are sure to come down.
Rise up and take the land! The promises of God are yes and amen! For the Lord your God is with you!
