Awaken your might!
AWAKEN YOUR MIGHT!
“Give ear, O Shepherd of Israel, thou that leadest Joseph like a flock; thou that dwellest between the cherubims, shine forth. Before Ephraim and Benjamin and Manasseh stir up thy strength, and come and save us.”
(Psalm 80:1, 2)
“You who lead Joseph like a flock; you who sit enthrones between the cherubim, and shine forth before Ephraim, Benjamin and Manasseh. Awaken your might.” (Psalm 80:1,2)
The most powerful illustration of God’s presence going before His people is that of the Israelites crossing the Jordan with the Ark in the lead. The Ark was God’s throne, His power and His might. It went ahead of Israel into the battle at Jericho and brought the Israelites victory. Indeed, if the Ark had not been ahead of them, they would have been on their own!
Whatever impossible circumstance may stand before you will surely be defeated as God’s presence arrives in the battle. As soon as the priests who carried the Ark of the Lord “set foot in the Jordan, its waters flowing downstream” were cut off (Joshua 3:13). As you come to your Jordan, “set foot” into the water. How dare the proud waters defy God’s presence and power! The foot of faith carries the arm of omnipotence. One little step of faith releases all of the power of God into your situation. Let God’s face shine against the darkness!
DECLARATION OF FAITH
Because I have made God’s ways my own. He quickly subdues my enemies under me and bids me to conquer them, Amen.
