The Open Door – Time To Cross Over
Daily Living – Day 2
Daily reading Joshua Chapter 2
Joshua 2 King James Version (KJV)
2 – And Joshua the son of Nun sent out of Shittim two men to spy secretly, saying, Go view the land, even Jericho. And they went, and came into an harlot’s house, named Rahab, and lodged there.
21 – And she said, According unto your words, so be it. And she sent them away, and they departed: and she bound the scarlet line in the window.
24 – And they said unto Joshua, Truly the Lord hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.
We know that Joshua had a command to Arise and to cross over the Jordan. The Lord told him they would go over to a land that he had promised them and every place that their feet shall tread upon, know that he has given it to them.
This is not the season to sit around waiting for things to happen. The bible tells us that, “now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.” Matthew 11:12
It’s time to act on what God has spoken. Timing and season have come together. Do not allow circumstances and situations to keep you from God’s ordained promises. Remember every promise is yes and amen. I decree today that you will not be stuck in the same place. I command your feet to move as the Lord directs in Jesus name. When you crossover to the other side by going through the open door know that the Word of God has already gone before you and His Word has established your way.
Know that in this season, God is releasing the wind that is going to dry up your waters and your situations. The wind of God will cause the waters to descend as you go over on dry ground.
And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the LORD caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were divided.
Joshua sends two people to spy-out the land, and especially the city of Jericho, knowing that He and Caleb along with 10 others had already spied out the land. However, Joshua and Caleb were the only 2 that came back with a positive report. The Lord did not tell Joshua to send out spies, but Joshua did it possible to see what lies ahead. Knowing that they already were given the land.
We are now in a season that we must trust God with all our hearts and lean not to our own understanding. God’s Word does not change. It is the only constant force and the Word never changes. Therefore, if God told them in Numbers the land was theirs, nothing has changed! People and circumstances may change but God’s Word does not.
Notice God never said anything to Joshua about sending the spies, so why are we to judge it. We are in a season that we must stop second guessing the voice of God. God had a plan already in place from the beginning. Genesis 3:15 already established that Christ would come and crush the head of the enemy. Knowing this, the lineage was set to whom Christ would come through. They had to go and meet Rahab and pull her and her family out. There had to be a sign of redemption for Rahab because she was a part of God’s destiny for Judah.
My warning however, is that we must embrace the new. I’m not talking about compromising the standards of sanctification, righteousness and holiness. They must be our landmarks that will never be removed.
Let us hold fast that profession our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
Crossing over and going through the open door does not mean giants are not in the land. You must know that you have the courage of David, the Strength of Sampson and the power of the Holy Spirit to defeat any wall of opposition that is in your way. But you must first believe the Word of the Lord then you will prosper and have good success.
Know that in conquering there is also a time of redeeming what you thought was lost or others did not see any value in.
Father give me the ability to see the promises that you have spoken in my life and the strength to walk in them. Help me to embrace what you have spoken clearly over my life.
