“Go into possess the land which the Lord is giving you to possess” – Josh .1:11

God’s spoken word is divine authority. This is the authority Joshua exercised when he passed on the command, by divine authority, to his officers. Nothing can contend with God’s divine authority. When God says it, it is already done. Titus 2:15 says, “Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you (Titus 2:3)

“Prepare provisions yourself” – Joshua 1:11

Just like a Solider equips himself before going for battle, every believer in Christ must be fully equipped with God’s Word. Before engaging in any form of spiritual warfare, you must be loaded with God’s Word. 1 Timothy 4:6 says, “We are to be nourished on the truth of faith.” The Word is what provides supernatural support, strength and zeal.

Each child of God brings something unique and special to the Body. You differ according to the grace (charis) given to you. These gifts (charisma ta) are not meant to be hidden, they are meant to be used.

You are the light of the world. Everyone can see a city that sits on top of a hill. The light of a city can be seen from miles away. (Matt.5:14).
