    Your word is a lamp to my feet, And a light for my path. Psalms 119:105 WEBThe old oil lamps that were used in biblical times had a small radius of light. They would light the path just a few feet ahead of you, and you could not see very far down the road. When traveling by night, you could see just...

    Keep me from the snare which they have laid for me, From the traps of the workers of iniquity. Let the wicked fall together into their own nets, While I pass by.

Get Up And Go

  • Yahweh said to Joshua, Get you up; why are you thus fallen on your face? Joshua 7:10 WEB

    The first town that the Israelites had come to in the promised land was Jericho. They marched around it seven times, shouted, and the walls of the city fell down. God was with them and it was an easy victory. They were supposed to bring all the loot into the Lord's treasury, but a man named Achan took some of the loot, kept it for himself, and the Lord withdrew His help from Israel.

    The next town they faced was the small town of Ai. Where they had taken the city of Jericho almost without a fight, Ai beat them back and made the Israelites retreat.

    Joshua lay on his face before the Lord and prayed for direction because they had lost the battle. When the Lord answered Joshua, it was basically: 'Get up, make it right, and let's go forward!' God gave Joshua no time to lay there and dwell on the past mistakes and events that had happened. They dealt with Achan, then went and took the city.

    Many times in my life, I have stumbled, turned back, and wandered away from God. Each time after I returned and prayed, it was exactly like this: 'Ok, now let's go forward!'

    God is always calling you into your future, into your destiny. The devil is always calling you into your past, reminding you of your mistakes, giving you feelings of shame, and wanting you to return to your old ways.

    Your past is gone, so let it go. Today is the first day of the rest of your life and God still has a plan for you, a destiny to fulfill. Don't live in your past mistakes, meditating on how much time has been wasted. When you dwell on those, you are siding with the enemy. Let this sink in: God talks about your future. It is the devil that talks about your past.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father I thank You for all that You do for me. Please draw my heart to You and give me the will to keep getting up when I stumble. Thank You for Your mercy. Lead me into all that You have for me, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

    Note: "if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land." (2 Chron 7:14). If you have a prayer need, we are here for you! We and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network
