A Legacy Of Faith
Empowering Others (Series)
What is faith?
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Are you willing to follow the Christ even if it hurts your reputation?
Hebrews 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell, after the army had marched around them for seven days. Follow what I do, not just what I say. Hypocrisy kills leadership.
Joshua 6:1-5 Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in. 2 Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. 3 March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. 4 Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. 5 When you hear them sound a long blast on the trumpets, have the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the army will go up, everyone straight in.”
Strategically, this was a military nightmare. Following the Lord sometimes feels foolish. Are some of the challenges you’re facing a direct result of disobedience?
Joshua 6:27 So the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the land. Obedience brings blessings to you and those around you
