Joshua 6:1-5

Seeing Your Jericho Through God’s Eyes


Joshua 6:1-5 now Jericho was tightly shut because of the sons of Israel no one went out and no one came in the LORD said to Joshua see, I have given Jericho into your hand with its King and the valiant warriors you shall march around the city all the men of war circling the city once you shall do so for six days also seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark then on the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times and the priests shall blow the trumpets it shall be that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn and when you hear the sound of the trumpet all the people shall shout with a great shout and the wall of the city will fall down flat and the people will go up every man straight ahead what’s amazing about this when I first read this it says The LORD said the city was completely shut tight no one could go in and no one could go out and God says to Joshua see I have given you the city I’m sitting there thinking all I see is a city with no way in big thick walls gates tightly shut and what do you mean see all I see is there’s no way in do you know what God was saying to Joshua you need to see in the spirit you need to see things that are not yet evident you need to see with eyes of faith that I’m about to do something here that is supernatural and the plan I’m going to give you is supernatural seems silly in the natural march around the city I think the reason God told Israel that they were to be silent for 6 days if he wouldn’t have done that you know what they would have been doing complaining, murmuring saying this will never work this is stupid speaking out against the LORD speaking against their leaders so God made that not possible he said just be quiet for 6 days and then on the 7th day shout and the walls are going to fall down supernaturally here’s the point you may have something tightly shut up in your life today something that you look at and go it’s impossible God has a supernatural plan to release something and today you need to have eyes of the Spirit to see what you cannot see in the natural I remember back in the year 2000 a little bit earlier than that Jan and I really got a desire in our heart to eliminate all our debt the primary debt we had was a house mortgage we didn’t know how we were going to do it we ran an excel spread sheet it looked like it was going to take more than 10 years God gave us a supernatural plan we paid off that debt in less than 3 years eliminated our house mortgage because God gave us a supernatural way to do that so the question is in your life today what is it that looks absolutely insurmountable is it health challenge a financial challenge something in your marriage relationship with children perhaps an unjust boss what is it where there’s something tightly shut up God is saying this to you today see, see I have a plan I will do something supernatural if you’ll see with eyes of the spirit today God will open something to you that is not seen in the natural just like He did opened Jericho to Joshua was impossible in the natural God did it in the supernatural He’ll do the same for you remember as you go through your life today love God with all your heart pursue Him this day with all your heart bless people around you and you will make a difference
