Topic: YOU ARE NOT ALONE
Bible Reading: Joshua 5:13-14a
📖13….”And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood a man over against him with his sword drawn in his hand: and Joshua went unto him, and said unto him, Art thou for us, or for our adversaries?
📖14a….And he said, Nay; but as captain of the host of the LORD am I now come.”
🔥Even though it sometimes looks tough with children of faith, no child of God is allowed by God to walk or war alone. Throughout the pages of the Bible, God promised to neither leave nor forsake us. Each time a child of God walks on a dangerous path, God releases an unseen army to lead him. God demonstrated His protective presence when Jacob was returning from Syria to Canaan in Genesis 32:1-2. God sent to accompany Jacob, two companies of angels.
🔥🔥In our opening text above, when God saw that Joshua and the Jews were about to embark on a dangerous mission against Jericho, he sent the captain of his army to assist them. May God always do same for us in Jesus’ name. In Exodus 14:19-20, God captained the Jews with a pillar of fire and cloud. While in Matthew 28:20, Jesus promised to be our captain till the end of time. Our God is truly a father.
🔥🔥🔥The question is, why does God follow us? To protect us from both spiritual and physical pursuers like Laban. He gives us captain to destroy every wall of Jericho ahead of us. To protect us from our oppressors that don’t want us to gain our freedom like the pursuing army of Egypt. No wonder he said in Psalm 23:4, that though we walk through the valley of the shadow of death, we should fear no evil; for He is with us. Beloved BoLD readers, if your eyes remain fixed on the Cross, your security will always be guaranteed by the presence of the heavenly captain.
🙏O Lord, send a deliverer to lead me against all satanic odds in my life, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Ancient of days, as the arrival of the captain of God’s army guaranteed the victory of Joshua at Jericho, let my problem solvers locate me now, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Heavenly Father, make available for me, your angelic companies, to constantly defend me against all spiritual pursuers and opposers, in Jesus’ name.
