When Joshua walked around the walls of Jericho, his obedience to God caused the walls that held him from God’s promise to come down. When you finish the final seven days of your fast, God will do the same to whatever walls you are facing. The Enemy may have tried everything he can do to hold you back, but if you remain obedient to God this week, you will watch God do what you cannot do on your own.
Joshua 6; Ezra 8:21; 1 Samuel 7:6; Acts 14:23; Deuteronomy 20:4; Joshua 5:13-15: Deuteronomy 29:5; Ephesians 6:15; Joshua 1:8; Proverb 29:11; Psalm 141:3; Mark 10:9; Hebrews 13:4; Ephesians 5:33
God gave simple instructions to follow:
- Fix your eyes on Jesus. When you fast, you take your eyes off of the walls in your life and fix them on Jesus.
- Take your shoes off. Taking your shoes off is symbolic of forgetting the past. When you fast, you look ahead instead of behind. Take your shoes off and get ready for what God wants to do in your life by fasting, praying, and meditating on the Word of God.
- Stay silent. Don’t complain or talk about how big the walls are. Refuse to be drawn into doubt or unbelief. It is hard to hear God’s voice if you are always talking. I stead, just pray and march. The fast you are on will affect future generations.
- Choose the joy of the Lord. Stay in good spirits during these last seven days of the fast and receive a breath of fresh air from the Holy Spirit. Fasting moves mountains and tears down walls. If you do not give up, God will give you victory.
The promise God has for you is on the other side of your obedience to fasting. If you do not give up, God will give you prosperity and good success. What you do will affect future generations. Are you ready to march and see the walls fall in your life?
