Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in. Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men.
Joshua 6:1-2 NIV
When Father Yahweh says: “See!” but what you are looking at is a barred entrance or a closed door, you must summon the courage to visualize the promise beyond the present challenge. Know that you are victorious even before the obstacle that obscures your vision is removed.
When He turns your attention to the obstacle it is with the expectation that you see beyond it! Keep walking in faith and not by sight.
What do you see? The obstacle or the vision of a promise received?
Today I offer up my praise to the One who keeps His Word!
Heavenly Father, your word is truth and it is life. We know that we can rely on You and that Your promises remain regardless of the present circumstances that may challenge us daily. May your Spirit continue to guide and instruct us as we walk in victory and take hold of Your promise for an expected end.
