Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. Joshua 1:3 NKJV
No man shall be able to stand before you all the days of your life; as I was with Moses, so I will be with you. I will not leave you nor forsake you. Joshua 1:5 NKJV
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9 NKJV
God gave man dominion over the earth. Adam and Eve chose to listen to the lie of the enemy rather than the truth of God. They ceded power to Satan. Satan was given a measure of authority on the earth.
Moses died. It was Joshua who led the people into The Promised Land. The Lord told Joshua he will have the same authority Moses had. When Joshua led the people into the Promised Land they faced opposition. These verses speak of spiritual warfare.
God is calling us to engage in spiritual warfare. He is promising to give us everywhere we set the souls of our feet. God is bringing the earth back under our dominion as extensions of His authority. Soon Jesus will set up His Kingdom upon the Earth. We will rule and reign with the Lord!
Joshua and the people of God were often outnumbered and overmatched when they went into battle. They were always victorious when they followed God’s commands and instructions. They never had any reason to be fearful. God was with them.
There will be times when we are outnumbered and overmatched as we seek to live according to God’s commands and instructions. We have nothing to fear as we live our lives for Jesus. God will be with us!
We can call out to Jesus for help anytime of the night or day. We can engage in spiritual warfare by praying to the Lord of Heaven and Earth!
God is commanding you to be strong and courageous. If you live by faith in Jesus He will give you every place that the sole of your feet tread upon. No form of evil will ever stand in opposition to you. Just as the Lord was with the saints of old He will be with you today!
Pray for people who are in bondage to be set free from sin. Ask the Lord to pull down strongholds in people’s lives.
Pray for Jesus Christ to be exalted throughout creation today!
