Fearing God’s Army

The Lord took me to a passage in Joshua where Joshua and the Israelites were about to move across the Jordan and possess the inheritance that the Lord had promised them. Joshua sent the twelve spies out. When they came to Jericho, the spies encountered a lady named Rahab, who said to them, “We are all afraid of you. Everyone in the land is living in terror of you, because we heard how the Lord made a dry path for you through the Red Sea. We heard how He judged the gods of Egypt.” The bottom line was that these people had been living in fear of Israel for almost forty years! That’s how terrified they were.

“I know that the Lord has given you this land and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you. We have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely destroyed. When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the Lord your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.” (Joshua 2:9-11; NIV)

Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:

  1. Ask the Lord for revelation on how the passage of scripture above relates to God’s army today.

  2. Stir yourself up in your most holy faith, for you are about to war and see victory! Demonic forces are afraid of you, because they know God is with you!

  3. Intercede for those things nationally that need to change and line up with God’s Word and Will.

  4. Ask Him for those things personally that you need breakthrough in. This is your breakthrough year and the demonic realm knows they must succumb to your warfare, as it is God that is fighting for you.

A prayer you can pray:

God, I think You for recording this conversation between Rahab and the Israeli spies. It is so encouraging to know that You go ahead of us and cause our spiritual enemies to fear us, because we fear and serve You! Holy Spirit, cause this revelation to drop deep into my spirit man. I must fully believe this! (Now pray for those national and personal needs that will bring breakthrough for the nation and in your life and the lives of those you love.) I thank you, Jesus, that the enemy will back off in fear and these breakthroughs are coming into being! Amen.

Today’s decree:

Our enemy is in fear, as they know that God is for us, therefore no one can be against us!
