SCRIPTURE: Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in …. and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat …. Joshua 6:1,5
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: What you do not surround will not surrender.
From our anchor scripture, we saw the divinely orchestrated approach that led to the collapse of the walls of Jericho. Jericho here represented an ungodly foundation, structure and installation.
Now, I want you to see three things that are significant about Jericho:
i. Jericho was standing in the way of the inheritance of Israel.
ii. Jericho represented the blockage of access to the destiny of Israel.
iii. Jericho represented a foundation or structure that was in the custody of the Israelites’ inheritance.
Now, let us look at three keys to handling satanic structures.
i. Prophetic instructions and impact. (Joshua 6:6-7). God, through Joshua, brought instruction to the Israelites concerning the wall of Jericho and that instruction produced a result; the wall of Jericho was destroyed.
ii. Aggressive confrontation of all satanic installations. (Joshua 6:6-17).
Whatever is not confronted can never be conquered. What you do not surround will not surrender. God told the Israelites to surround Jericho so that it can surrender. So, when we surround satanic installations with prayer, Word, power and fire, they surrender.
iii. Militant praise and worship. It was aggressive militant praise that destroyed the wall of Jericho (Joshua 6:20). Praise also opens prison doors (Acts 16:25).
Beloved, every ungodly structure of hell in possession of your inheritance, every evil ancestral foundation blocking you from your inheritance or from fulfilling your destiny, today, they are destroyed, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: What you do not surround will not surrender.
1. Confront what is against you with prayer, Word, praise and fire and anticipate their collapse.
2. Value the prophetic cover over your life and believe the prophetic decrees he makes over your life.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You because nothing can hinder Your plan, purpose and provisions for my life. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I command anything trying to block my access to my destiny and possessions to be scattered!
