“Go into possess the land which the Lord is giving you to possess” – Josh .1:11
God’s spoken word is divine authority. This is the authority Joshua exercised when he passed on the command, by divine authority, to his officers. Nothing can contend with God’s divine authority. When God says it, it is already done. Titus 2:15 says, “Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you (Titus 2:3)
“Prepare provisions yourself” – Joshua 1:11
Just like a Solider equips himself before going for battle, every believer in Christ must be fully equipped with God’s Word. Before engaging in any form of spiritual warfare, you must be loaded with God’s Word. 1 Timothy 4:6 says, “We are to be nourished on the truth of faith.” The Word is what provides supernatural support, strength and zeal. It is God’s Word which provides sustenance for the journey ahead. Joshua and the children of Israel embarked on a Journey, with the assurance of God’s word. Joshua had already been instructed to meditate on The Word, not occasionally, but “day and night.” (Joshua 1:8). To “possess the land”, the Christian Soldier must do the same.
“Possess the land which the Lord is giving you.”
God’s promises are Yes and Amen. “No matter how many promises God has made, they are, “Yes” in Christ (2 Cor.1:20). The believer must respond in faith to the promises of God. Be strong and courageous, you can do all that God has commanded you to do. No believer should be deprived of what God has promised. You can, and must, possess what belongs to you. Amen.
