"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for Yahweh thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:9)


I was praying this morning, and I was asking the Lord for some spiritual things, some things like, give me the strength to do ... or, give me the courage ... or, give me the boldness ... something along those lines -- having to do with witnessing and saving souls. And do you know what He said to me in the Spirit? He said, "I already gave you that." And I would ask for something else, and He would say, "I already gave you that." Almighty God in Christ Yeshua has already given us everything we need to be successful in Him and to be accomplishing His will. So, I changed my prayer. I said, "Lord, give us the abilities (the wisdom, the strength, whatever it takes) to utilize everything that You've given us. Our Father, please let the Church utilize all the spiritual gifts, and all the fruits of the Spirit, and all the power that You have given us for Your will to be accomplished and for Your glory!"

"Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses" (Joshua 1:3). "Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for Yahweh thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest" (Joshua 1:9). "And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess the land, which Yahweh, the God of your Fathers, hath given you?" (Joshua 18:3)

As mentioned in the previous message, "How long will ye be slack?" The children of Israel just didn't take what God had already given them.

"And there remained among the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet received their inheritance. And Joshua said unto the children of Israel, "How long are ye slack to go to possess the land which Yahweh, the God of your fathers, hath given you?" (Joshua 18:2-3)

God had already given them the land --

"Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses." (Joshua 1:3)

"Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for Yahweh thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest." (Joshua 1:9)

Hasn't the Lord promised to be with us until the end? With the Spirit of the Lord and the boldness of the Lord, we can walk in anywhere and conquer the enemy by taking souls. I quit asking for boldness this morning -- he has already given it to me. I ask now for myself and the whole Body of Christ that we may be given the grace to utilize all that we've been given to the max! Give us wisdom? He's given us that. Let us utilize it!

"Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession." (Psalm 2:8)

Okay, I'm asking Yahweh! I want the heathens' souls for salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth!

But, God is holding out on us in one area. There's something He said that He will not give us -- the spirit of fear! (1 Timothy 1:7) Go forth and conquer in the name of Yeshua Christ! Shout for Yahweh has given you the city! (Judges 6:16)
