40 Days of Prayer – Prayer Focus: Dismantling Satanic Agendas – Part 1
Do you see the storm clouds rolling in over this nation – over our economy? FEAR NOT! We have a Helper. Yahweh Sabaoth – The LORD of Hosts – is His name!
“Now it came to pass when Joshua was near Jericho that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, there was a man standing in front of him with his sword drawn in his hand. Joshua approached him and said to him: “Are you for us or for our adversaries?”“Neither,” He said. “Rather, I have now come as commander of Adonai’s army.”
Then Joshua fell on his face to the ground and worshipped. Then he asked him, “What is my lord saying to his servant?” Then the commander of Adonai’s army replied to Joshua, “Take your sandal off of your foot, for the place where you are standing is holy.” And Joshua did so.”
In (Joshua 5:13-15), the LORD appeared to Joshua as a MAN OF WAR with His sword drawn at His side.
The CAPTAIN of the Hosts of the Armies of Heaven fought alongside the children of Israel, causing them to FIGHT WITH VIGOR.
The LORD of Hosts DESTROYS principalities, DISGRACES powers, OVERTHROWS dominions, TOPPLES thrones, BRINGS DOWN the high places, and DISMANTLES satanic agendas.
Whose Side Are You On?
As Joshua led Israel in battle, he asked the LORD, “Are You for us or for our enemies?” You would think that the LORD would answer, “I am on Israel’s side.” However, the LORD responded: “Neither, I am on the LORD’s side.” Likewise, we should consider the LORD’S response before we choose sides.
In this highly charged political climate, we must be careful to not be too quick to take sides – because all flesh is corrupt in His sight (Romans 3:10).
In the heat of the battle, Joshua asked the LORD, “What do You have to say to Your servant?” When facing trouble, we too should ask the Lord to give us His perspective in our situations.
Notice, the LORD’S response to Joshua. In the middle of intense battle, the LORD instructed Joshua to take off his shoes in reverence.
The LORD could have instructed Joshua with a strategic battle plan. The LORD could have encouraged Joshua by telling him that He would defeat all his enemies. Instead the LORD led Joshua in WORSHIP.
So, in the middle of intense warfare, Joshua took of his sandals and fell on his face before the LORD of HOSTS – in reverent – deep – intimate – worship. Every arrow targeted at Joshua was thwarted! The threats of his enemies was drowned-out in praise! The war cry on the battlefield became faint as Joshua was swept away in the presence of the LORD in worship. PRAISE & WORSHIP is the best battle plan we can ever have! WORSHIP is our warfare our PRAISE is a WEAPON!
If you are feeling overwhelmed by warfare, I urge you to call on the name of the Yahweh Sabaoth. Call on His name until peace comes. Call on His name until your joy is restored. Call on His name until your accusers are silenced. Call on His name until EVERY ARROW targeted against our government falls to the ground. Call on His name until every satanic agenda is dismantled.
