I had wee bit of a revelation last night while listening to some teaching in our Bible study group at the house.
We were told that the devil would be crushed under our feet (Romans 16 v 20).
I was also reminded about Joshua where the Lord told him that he would possess everywhere that was under his feet (Joshua 1 v 3).
This is a picture of us possessing the good things provided for us by the Lord through our salvation.
Now I had the thought that neither of these two things would occur if we just stood still.
In order to crush or posses we need to walk, we need to move, we need to ‘do our bit’.
Standing still and not moving is not an option!
Lethargy, apathy and laziness is not an option for the born again believer; well they are not an option if you wish to crush the enemy and possess the good things of God.
In order to crush we need to move forward and attack.
In order to possess we need to move forward into the provision that has already been provided.
I am not talking about works, however we need to be pro-active and indeed simply active in our walk with the Lord.
Are you ready to move forward today?
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that you promised I could crush the devil and also possess the good things provided through my salvation”.
Joshua 1 v 3…..Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that I have given unto you, as I said unto Moses
