YOU CAN DO IT!


But the mountain shall be thine; for it is a wood, and thou shalt cut it down: and the outgoings of it shall be thine: for thou shalt drive out the Canaanites, though they have iron chariots, and though they be strong. (Joshua 17:18 KJV)

The house of Joseph approached Joshua, unhappy with the small parcel of inheritance they had received. They felt they were a great tribe which deserved more. Joshua’s response to them is noteworthy, they were responsible for their situation. Being a mighty tribe, they were supposed to rise up and take over the mountain kingdom, cut down the wooded forest and take possession. Yes, they were supposed to turn it into a city.

There was a fear in them, the land was occupied by the Canaanites who were very strong and had iron chariots. Joshua assured them that they would drive out the Canaanites. Yes their enemies were strong and had iron chariots but they had the Lord on their side.

Today I want to let you know that you CAN DO IT! You can take possession of the mountain kingdom. You can broaden your horizons! It might look crowded by those who seemingly are stronger and well equipped but you have the Lord on your side. He is the one that goes ahead of you in that company, business, relationship and job. His hand is upon you to succeed and you will drive out the Canaanites. You will emerge ten times better than all of them!

Don’t sit in one place and complain about your limitations. Don’t murmur about the lack of opportunities. Opportunities will not COME to you, you will GO to them! When you take the first STEP towards the opportunity, it will take two STEPS towards you. Discard fear and move in faith and you will surely see the hand of God. Let me be JOSHUA in your life and urge you to GO for it without fear.

I pray for you that CONFIDENCE rises up in your inner man to move forward and take more territory.

Declare this,
I arise in the power of the God’s Spirit and I take more territory. I refuse to murmur and complain. I refuse to fear those that seem to dominate my territory!

PREPARE FOR YOUR CROSSOVER

Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it. (Joshua 1:11 KJV)

Are you ready for your breakthrough this year? The children of Israel had gone around the wilderness for forty years, it was a great message to finally hear that in three days time, they would cross the Jordan River. It was a season in which endless circles of lack of progress would be broken.

The land was right in front of them which they would now possess. They were going to bid farewell to the life of the wilderness. But for this to effectively happen, they needed to prepare! Every new level that you aspire for needs you to prepare for it. Without preparation, you will soon crawl back into the previous life. If you are not prepared, you will live the wilderness life in the Promised Land.

The rules of the Promised Land are different from those of the wilderness. It is a total mental shift that one must engage in to accrue the benefits of the new place. Many people get excited when there is an opportunity to cross over, be it into a new year, new job or new relationship. But owing to a lack of preparation, the excitement does not last long as they soon get back to their old habits and ways.

Prepare your heart for the next level. Good things come to those who are prepared. Success is not an accident! It is a realization of predetermined and preset goals. Joshua told the officers to command the people to prepare. A command has to be followed fully for it to benefit someone. Heed this command today.

I pray for you today that the grace of the Lord helps you to prepare for the great things ahead of you. May you get help from those competent to ensure that your next level will be a blessing to you.

Declare this,
I am crossing over into victory, progress and success. The Holy Spirit is imparting on me the grace to effectively prepare. I will not lack for progress in this season.

HE GOES AHEAD OF YOU

And they said among themselves, Who shall roll us away the stone from the door of the sepulchre? And when they looked, they saw that the stone was rolled away: for it was very great. (Mark 16:3-4 KJV)

Fear often prohibits one from witnessing the amazing miracles of God. You must know that as God’s child, he deploys Angels before you to clear your path. By the time you get to a place, he often has solved issues on your behalf. Many times in my life I have had situations ahead of me in which I wondered how I would solve the challenges but when I proceeded in faith, the Lord made it all easy.

Today I want you to know that he goes ahead of you. God has more answers for you than the questions you can ask. The three women, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome had a mission after the Sabbath. They wanted to go to the grave and anoint the body of Jesus. There was a problem that they battled with though, there was a great stone at the door of the sepulchre. Who was going to open it for them? They didn’t have the strength nor capacity to do it.

In their inability, they made a decision to go. They moved in faith believing that a solution will come for them. You don’t wait to have all the answers to start off! Move in faith, the answers will come as you are on the move. Many have been waiting for years to launch into that business. Others have been waiting for a long time to commit to that relationship because of fear. Will I have all the resources? Will I be able to look after the kids? God wants to surprise you with his miracles but this will not be so if you stick in one place.

You need courage to begin, courage to launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch. When one casts their hook into the water in fishing, they have no idea the number of fish in that river. It is an attempt of faith to which God will reward with a catch. Unless to cast the hook, there will be no catch for you.

When the three women arrived, behold the great stone was rolled away. The moment they started moving in faith, God performed the miracle that confounded their imagination. I encourage you to BEGIN today! Don’t wait for all the resources to be available. MOVE IN FAITH, And God’s response will be to move with answers on your behalf.

I pray for you that fear be discarded in your life. May you experience the supernatural move of God in Jesus’ name!

Declare this,
I am walking in faith and confidence. Today I review every area in which I have been stagnant and I take STEPS towards my goals. I believe God is granting me miracles as I begin to move forward!

HOW TO GET INSTANT ANSWERS TO YOUR PRAYERS!

Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. (Mark 11:24 KJV)

It is one thing to practice something and another practicing it with understanding. Principles are always the drivers of anything and if one gets it right on the principles, the desired results are certain. In my life, I have faced circumstances which I presented before God in prayer, the fulfillment of my requests has however mostly depended on understanding of the principles that govern the situation. Without understanding of the word, one can easily grope in deep darkness that results in frustration and giving up.

So how must one pray to get results? How do you break the ceiling that seems to limit the effectiveness of your prayer? Jesus shows us in the word. One day, on his way from Bethany to Jerusalem, Jesus was hungry and he saw a fig tree but there was no fruit in it. He cursed it, the following day when they passed by the same place, Peter was fascinated that the fig tree that was plush and green yesterday was now dry and dead. The effect and results of the words of Jesus were instant, yielding overnight results! How did he do it?

Faith is the answer! Without faith, it is impossible to receive. Don’t begin to pray when you are already defeated and doubting. Pray believing that God has already granted your request. If you believe you will receive it. If you pray without faith, you are wasting precious time because remember, everything has principles that govern it!

Today, you must build your faith strong through the word of God for faith comes by hearing God’s word. Review all the prayers that you prayed and received no answers. Did you pray with faith or doubt was dominating your heart? Every game has rules that govern it, laws that determine who wins and who loses. If you don’t understand the laws, you are automatically disqualified!

I pray for you that your prayers will be propped up by faith and that instant answers be your portion. I bind every demon that was sowing doubt in your heart in Jesus’ name.

Declare this,
I rise up in faith as I and overcome every obstacle to my prayers. Instant results are mine in Jesus’ name.
