Your Jericho Walls
Have you been trading punches with the enemy for years, building a thick stone tower of lies higher than the eye can see? Do you feel trapped in your flesh and bone, silently crying out to the Lord, “I'm desperate! Come rattle this cage and set me free! All of my fears, like Jericho walls, have got to come down.”
Joshua 6:1-2 – “Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. 2 And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.” Read the story of the Walls of Jericho here. Hebrews 11:30 - “By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days.” Psalms 118:5-8 – “I called upon the LORD in distress: the LORD answered me, [and set me] in a large place. 6 The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? 7 The LORD taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see [my desire] upon them that hate me. 8 [It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”
Truth is, God, You were crashing through the pride and the blame, cutting straight to my heart long before I ever called Your name. Lord Jesus, my prison turned to ruin when Your Love moved in. My victory is carved in Your flesh and bone … the wounds that have said my soul is forgiven. Oh, now I can feel the darkness trembling! Rebuild me from the ground up and terrify the lies with Truth. Emmanuel, thank You for tearing down my walls ... now all I want is You.
