Transcript

Deuteronomy 11:24-25 every place in which the sole of your foot treads shall be yours your border will be from the wilderness to Lebanon and from the river, the river Euphrates as far as the western sea no man will be able to stand before you the LORD your God will lay the dread of you and the fear of you on all the land on which you set your foot He has spoken to you this is what God spoke to Israel when they were coming in to the land God repeated it to Joshua again as they were coming into the land but here’s very interesting thing I first heard Lorne Cunningham the founder of Youth With a Mission say this many many years ago he said pay attention to the fact that He said every place upon which the sole of your foot treads now the sole of your foot implies that you have no shoes and he said the only way that you can take your land your Jericho your promised land is barefoot take your land barefoot what on earth does that mean? he went on to explain this and I love this shoes represent your rights shoes represent your reputation shoes represent man’s plans shoes represent man’s authority man’s power in ancient times in the middle east the only one who had no shoes was a slave slaves were not allowed to have shoes and so a person that was a servant had no shoes so what God is saying here to Israel is you’re going to go into the land but you’re going to take it barefoot you’re not going to take it by man’s ingenious plans you’re not going to take it by your power by your wisdom you’re not going to take it with your ideas but I will go before you as a consuming fire and all you need to do is show up and collect miracles I will deliver the land to you and this is such a powerful thing but you know what happens many many times we isolate ourselves from God’s plan and God’s power because of our shoes we want to take the land with shoes with thick soles and it’s like the shoes isolate and insulate us from the power of God because we’re not servants we’re walking in our own plans if you’re creating a business for example yes of course we need a business plan of course we need capitalization of course there’s certain things to create a business but do you want to create a business on your own or do you want to walk in a business that God delivers to you that’s His idea full of His power that you operate in the kingdom for His purposes if you’re going to do that you’re going to have to do it bare foot that means you’re going to have to eliminate your shoes what do the shoes represent? your rights your reputation your wisdom your ideas your ingenuity your plans these are all shoes are you willing to yield your rights to God today in your business are you willing to yield your rights in your family give up your reputation your plans and say God I only want your plans yes I want every place in which the sole of my foot treads with no shoes on barefoot as your servant to be given into my possession not for me to have it for me to be your steward for me to be your servant in the kingdom to manage large sums of money for you many properties for you a large business for you this is God’s purpose this is God’s plan but you can only take your Jericho barefoot are you facing a Jericho? are you facing giants today? is there something that you need to conquer or capture I encourage you take it barefoot today ask God this question God what rights do I have what reputation do I have what plans do I have that are mine? where I’m not really yielding to you where I’m not giving it over to you and today I encourage you give your business over to God give your family over to God give your plans over to God and every place on which the sole of your foot treads when you walk barefoot God will give to you even as he promised here in Deuteronomy where He said the border will be from the wilderness of Lebanon as far as the river Euphrates to the western sea huge territory God will give you your territory if you’ll take it barefoot God Bless You
