Introduction;

Life in the Spirit is life in the word of God.Jesus once said,the words I speak are Spirit.If you purpose as an act of your will to obey the word of God then you are on the right truck to live in the Spirit.Joshua is a good example in the Old testament of a man who knew if he was to live to the purpose of God,he had to learn to obey and carry out the Lords instructions.

Explanation.

Jericho was tightly shut up because its inhabitants feared the Israelites.

Jericho was one of the cities in the promised land which was supposed to belong to the Israelites but had the wrong occupants.

Joshua knew he needed Gods’ direction to overcome this fortified city.

The Lord speaks to Joshua and tells him;

-See, I have delivered Jericho to your hands along with its kings and its fighting men.

-March around the city once with all the armed men  and repeat for six days.

-Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams in front of the Ark.

-On the seventh day march around the city seven times with the priests blowing the trumpets.

-When you hear a long blast on the trumpets,have all the people give a loud shout then the wall of the city will collapse and the people will go up every man straight in.

The Lord gave very clear instructions to Joshua.

Joshua was quick to obey the Lord .

This guaranteed him victory.

The instruction from the lord begins by Joshua being told to see.

Victory will not come unless you see it from the beginning.

Then you will have to follow the lords’ instructions.

Shout the following statement;

(i).I will see the victory in advance.

(ii).I will pay attention to the Lords’ command.

(iii).I will act according to what the Lord says.

(iv).I am a victor in Jesus Name.
