INVOKING THE NAMES OF 21 BIBLE MEN WHO DID GREAT THINGS FOR GOD IN THEIR TIME LEAVING LESSONS FOR OUR SONS.
SONS NOVENA DAY 8.
MAN OF THE DAY: JOSHUA
Joshua Obeyed the Lord’s Audacious Commands
PRAYER FOCUS: COURAGE
Like Joseph, Joshua lived to be 110 years old (Joshua 24:29). Like his fellow good spy, Caleb, Joshua loved, trusted, and obeyed the Lord wholeheartedly. Caleb may have beaten Joshua at arm wrestling, but Joshua stands out as one of my all-time favorite Bible heroes. Like his predecessor, Joshua had the courage to obey the Lord no matter how audacious His commands sounded.
Joshua’s secret was listening for the Lord, even if the Lord spoke to him only once every few years. His other secret was immediately repeating and obeying the Lord’s commands. After all, if the Lord said it, and He cannot lie, then what the Lord promised will come true. Walk around the hostile city of Jericho quietly for seven days? Check. Walk around it quietly six extra times on the seventh day? Got it. Then shout? Good as done.
Only one ancient city in all the world has walls that imploded into the city. That is, the walls imploded everywhere except one spot (Rahab’s house and those next to it). Archeologists call it Jericho City IV. No other archeological site is quite like it!
PRAYER: May my son be strong and courageous and not fear or be in dread, for it is You, Lord, our God, who goes with him. You will never leave him or forsake him (Deuteronomy 31:6).
DAILY PRAYER OF BLESSING.
My son……………………….. I give to you the blessing of my prayers.
I give to you the blessing of my praise.
I give to you the blessing of my passage.
I give to you the blessing of my purity.
I give to you the blessing of my name.
My son, Because YOU are born of God, YOU shall overcome the world and every battle in it, in Jesus name.
By the blood of Jesus, I blot out every evil family record that may be speaking against you.
Like Joseph, may you receive the anointing to terminate generational battles.
Like Jephtha, may you receive the grace to rewrite our family history positively.
Like David, may you be used to kill the Goliath that we your parents and our seniors could not kill.
Father, empower my son to defeat the forces that defeated our parents and grandparents.
