Moving Forward

Joshua 6


Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No one went out and no one came in.      Joshua 6:1

#2.  THE PLAN.

Then the Lord said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands, along with its king and its fighting men. March around the city once with all the armed men. Do this for six days. 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. 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.”

Joshua 6:2-5


20 When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone charged straight in, and they took the city. Joshua 6:20


How can we overcome the OBSTACLES that keep us from Moving Forward with God:

#1.    Realize the God has a PLAN.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.                                                              Jeremiah 29:11

#2.  Understand the place of PURITY in your life. 

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.  Matthew 5:6

#3.  Exercise your FAITH in God.

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. Hebrews 11:1

#4.  Practice PATIENCE on the Journey.

I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. Psalm 40:1

#5.  Control your SELF.

Better a patient person than a warrior, one with self-control than one who takes a city. Proverbs 16:32

#6.  Claim the PROMISES of God.

Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled. Joshua 21:45

#7.  Have confidence in the LEADERS in your life.

So the Lord was with Joshua, and his fame spread throughout the land. Joshua 6:27
