What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Joshua chapter six tells the story about how the odds were stacked against Joshua and the people of Israel. They were standing at the massive walls of Jericho that many thought were impenetrable.
Im sure as he was standing before the well-fortified walls and gates of the city, many around him didnt think his future was too bright. But you see Joshua had something others overlooked; he had the promise of Almighty God. Joshua had faith because He knew God was on His side, and God had already determined the victory. Sure enough, just as God promised, the people marched around the city for six days, and on the seventh day, they shouted the victory and the walls came tumbling down!
Today, dont look at the walls in your life; look at the promise of God. He is for you, and if God is for you, nothing can stand against you. Get a vision of victory and dont let it go. Keep moving forward in faith and obedience knowing that when you do, the Most High God is on your side!
A Prayer for Today
Father God, thank You for Your favor, grace and victory in my life. I choose to trust You. I choose to follow Your leading. I choose to be faithful to You because You are faithful to me. I love You and bless You in Jesus name. Amen.
