TOPIC: Fight and Possess
FOCUS SCRIPTURE: “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?” (Joshua 5: 13)

The Joshua generation was that generation that knew the promise of God, and were ready to fight until it became reality. They were not afraid to fight for what God promised them. They were not scared to enforce the provision that heaven made for them. They understood that although God had made a promise, they needed to fight the battle to possess their possession. They were ready to wage war until they took their place.
Friend, arise and fight for your ‘Jericho’. Enforce the mandate of heaven upon your ‘Jericho’. If there be a word that God has spoken to you, keep declaring it until it becomes your reality. Keep warring with your prophecies until they are fulfilled. Keep confessing the word of the Lord concerning you until that word is made flesh and appears to all men. Don’t be tired to arise and enforce the mandate of heaven against your roadblocks/opposers.
Don’t leave your prophecy to lie fallow; feed and nurture it by proclaiming the word of the Lord concerning you. Don’t just sit back and wait for everything to fall into place; use your words, proclamations and prayers to cause everything to fall into place. Wage war against the forces opposing your new season. Tear down the altars of hell that have been erected to stop your advancement. Prayerfully dislodge the roadblocks against your rising.
Jericho was not vacant when Joshua and his generation went to possess it. There were inhabitants already in Jericho. Some people were occupying the land that God promised to give them. There just might be people who are already occupying the ‘land’ that God has promised you; some people may be contesting for the same next level that God promised you, and you need to wage war in prayers to gain your ‘place’.
Joshua fought for the land of Jericho, and he possessed Jericho. God says, as you fight the battles for your new season through prayers and prophetic confessions of God’s word, you will possess your portion.
Matthew 11: 12 says: “And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.”
DECLARATION: I will fight for my ‘Promised Land’; I shall possess my possession, in Jesus’ name!

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
