Matthew 26:39 “And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.”
Anytime that anyone considers stopping his or her Godly assignment to go and deliver God’s people in the midway, such person should consider him or herself a failure.
However, if at anytime your assignment is becoming more tedious what do you do? You continue to do it with tenacity.
When the enemy was winning the war contrary to what God has said concerning the children of Israel. Joshua was definitely perplexed but he never considered maybe he should drop his assignment or not. He dares to move forward with tenacity.
For instance, Achan systematically has hidden what God’s has instructed them not to touch and the result of the disobedience of Achan was manifesting on the Israelites. Achan Himself may not know that the situation of touching what God asked them not to contact can boomerang as it does. But even when he saw the children of Israel suffering and being killed unnecessarily, Achan still don’t bother and he thought he could hide his atrocity until the problem passes away.
However, Joshua couldn’t stand the death blow from the enemies anymore and he questions God’s integrity not knowing that they had violated God’s instruction. And God replies him back with the following in Joshua chapter 7
10 “So the Lord said to Joshua, “Rise up! Why is it that you have fallen on your face? 11 Israel has sinned, and they have also transgressed My covenant which I commanded them. And they have even taken some of the things under the ban and have both stolen and deceived. Moreover, they have also put them among their own things. Joshua 7
Joshua did his findings and he found out that God is not a liar.
In Which area do you think you’ve brought trouble unto your people or into your assignment? If you don’t confess, repent and ask God for total forgiveness I am not sure if your born-again journey has started yet.
DON’T BE AFRAID YOU WILL NOT BE STONED TO DEATH
The case is different now, you may not be stoned to death I can’t guarantee anyone that, it depends on how your people truly fear God. But what I can guarantee everyone that come to God through Jesus Christ is that God will not hold anything against them anymore.
Our heavenly Father I ask for boldness this morning for your people to be able to do what is right in your eyes regardless of the political correctness in the name of Jesus.
