Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 10 April 2021 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – TAKING TERRITORIES
TOPIC: Taking Territories (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 10 April 2021)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 9-12
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Joshua 1:1-4
1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the LORD it came to pass, that the LORD spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ minister, saying,
2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all these people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel.
3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.
4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast.
MEMORY VERSE: “Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses.” – Joshua 1:3
Those who are faint-hearted cannot take territories. Be courageous!
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
TODAY, THE LORD WILL GIVE YOU THE HEATHEN FOR YOUR INHERITANCE AND THE UTTERMOST PART OF THE EARTH FOR YOUR POSSESSION, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Taking territories has several meanings. It is breaking into new frontiers, taking your environment for Christ, growing spiritually and advancing from one level to another level. It also means taking new initiatives and developing new opportunities.
Whatever we read in the Bible, whether an event that happened, an instruction that God gave, or something that God did, we can always find in them principles informing and directing what we do today. God promised Joshua that wherever the sole of his foot touched He had given to him. In other words, wherever Joshua could walk was potential property for him.
If you had that promise in these days, I am sure you will intentionally walk large portions of land and claim all for yourself and your family after you. That promise God made to Joshua still stands today. This time the context is different, however. I am sure you have lived in different places at this point in your life. The question to ask is this: Did you possess all those places that you lived? To interpret this more accurately, how many people in those areas did you “possess” for the kingdom?
We should be Kingdom-conscious wherever the Lord, secular assignments and so on might take us. I believe that one thing we can add to our profile is how many came to know the Lord because of your presence in those communities. How has been your Christian witnessing so far?
Moses identified seven territories that the Israelites were to possess in order to inherit their promised land: the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites and the Jebusites. Just as Israel of Moses’ and Joshua’s days had territories to conquer, in our day, we too have “territories” that must be brought under the Lordship of Christ.
The Great Commission instructs us to make disciples of all nations, not just converts. When the Lord gave the Great Commission, His focus was on nations being discipled for Him and not just individuals. Yet today, most of what we preach across the Body of Christ is individual salvation and not a message with a view of societal change and transformation.
- I receive a divine mandate to recover my stolen territories, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, use me to do exploit in this generation, in the name of Jesus.
- Power for territorial dominion and transformation, fall upon my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Lord, raise me as Ezra and Nehemiah for good works, in the name of Jesus.
- Territorial powers hindering the will and purpose of God for my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
- I receive power to tread on territorial serpents and scorpions, in the name of Jesus.
- Sanballat and Tobiah on agenda to stop my progress, be wasted, in the name of Jesus.
