NUGGET: THE FAST AND THE VICTORY
JOSHUA 6:10,20; And Joshua had commanded the people, saying, Ye shall not shout, nor make any noise with your voice, neither shall any word proceed out of your mouth, until the day I bid you shout; then shall ye shout. So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
There is something pleasurable that you need to deprive yourself of may be for a short while or for a long time to birth that miracle, there are things you need to give up to go higher. The children of Israel were commanded by God through Joshua not to voice words till the 7days of encamping round about Jericho was completed and the trumpet was blown which launched them into victory. What they observed here was a mouth/word fast. Like the children of Israel that they are, possibly if they had talked freely as before because of their murmuring they would have said something that would have countered their miracle and angered God, in turn that would have kept them longer there. What is that thing that you love so much but God is asking you to give up to get more ,it is time to put it to fast. There is a great reward for sacrifice. Give up that little for God to give you more. Fast is not only when you don't eat but that thing you need to sacrifice to get something better.
O Lord I lay it all at your feet. I give my all to you in submission and surrender. I declare that nothing matters to me than you Lord. Pleasing you Lord is what I choose to live for. Give me grace to for you fully. Father let my daily living bring glory to you. I break forth into victory in Jesus name, amen!
