John Hagee (September-21-2021) Daily Devotional: 1 John 5:4 - For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.
After we prepare for conflict, we need to get ready for victory! No need to debate what God has declared. Every step brings us that much closer to His promise.
When God promised Jericho to the Israelites, He instructed them to march. Every circle around the walls gave them opportunity to prepare for victory. As they marched in silence, they must have remembered God’s faithfulness to them in the past.
If God delivered them from Pharaoh’s brick pit, He was well able to give Jericho to them. If He pushed back the waters of the Red Sea, He could surely topple these walls. If He could be a fire by night and a cloud by day, He could lead them to victory. Manna from heaven, water from a rock...God was with them, and He was for them.
With every lap, their faith grew. A shout was building. They believed that on the seventh day, when they lifted their hands, when their shout erupted, those walls would come down. Victory belonged to them!
As you march around your Jericho, get ready for victory. Rehearse the things that God has done for you in the past. Faith will bring down the walls to reveal His promise!
Blessing: May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. As you recall God’s faithfulness in the past, remember that nothing is impossible for Him now. May your shout erupt in a roar that brings down every wall in the name of Jesus!
