Today Reminder - 27 February 2013 (Walls)

A reminder for today
When the people heard the sound of the rams' horns, they shouted as loud as they could. Suddenly, the walls of Jericho collapsed, and the Israelites charged straight into the town and captured it. (Joshua 6:20)

There are so many amazing things that the Lord did in the Bible, but to me the fall of Jericho is just one that stands out. A fortress of a city safely behind unbreakable walls locked shut so that no one can come in or out. The army of the Lord marched around it and the walls just crumbled. It is just awesome!

My dear friend, are there walls in your life that you cannot break? Do you find yourself staring at the impossible not knowing how you will ever succeed of overcome this enormous task? The Lord your God will give you victory over all that holds you back and keeps you away from His great love. The Lord needs warriors for His army and He needs you to take up your armour and be ready to march around these walls today. I can see you fully armoured with the armour of God, sword in hand and ready for battle. But the battle is not yours to fight, because the Lord has already given you that victory in Jesus Christ. All you need to do is walk in His glory and shout His name and the walls will crumble so that you can take possession of this piece in your life and give it to the Lord for His glory.

I pray that you will become the warrior the Lord has destined you to be so that you will break the chains and watch the walls come down around you for the glory of our Lord, in Jesus name.

The whole armour of God (Ephesians 6:11-18)

Put on all of God's armour so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.  Therefore, put on every piece of God's armour so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armour of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
