Pastor Luc Portelance,
High Prairie Victory Life Church
“I know that the Lord has given Israel this land. Everyone shakes with fear because of you. We heard how the Lord dried up the Red Sea so you could leave Egypt. And we heard how you destroyed Sihon and Og, those two Amorite kings east of the Jordan River. We know that the Lord your God rules heaven and earth, and we’ve lost our courage and our will to fight.” [Joshua 2:9-11]
God’s manifested presence continually gave the children of Israel victory in their lives. Story after story in God’s Word, it declares that when the people of God recognized and acknowledged God’s presence it brought victory for them.
In Joshua Chapter 2, just before the people of God are about to cross over into the Promised Land, Rahab declares this very thing. She more or less said to the men that she knew that the Lord was handing the land over to them.
Remember, today, that no matter what impossible situation you are facing, you are not facing it alone, God is with you. Just like He was with the children of Israel throughout their journey, He will not leave you nor forsake you and His presence brings victory, healing, deliverance and breakthrough.
Next week: Nazarene Pastor Brian Gilroy.
