Title: A mindset of victory

Theme: To know the principles to receiveing victory.

Text: Ps 60:12

And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour. And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war, and go round about the city once. Thus shalt thou do six days. And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him. {flat: Heb. under it} (Joshua 6:2-5 AV)

Psalms 60:12 NIV "With God we will gain the victory"

Most know the story of Jeicho. God gave Jousha instructions on how to defeat the Canaanites. Before them was this great city of walls that seem to be impregenable. It seemed and the Canaanites thought that no one could defeat them. But God surprised them with something. For six days did Israel march around the city. First the armed men then the preists next the ark of the covenant finally the people. For six days this happend once a day until finally on the seventh day they marched seven times and with the seventh tiem they gave a shout and the wall fell flat so that they could walk over them.

What power. But most of all what victory. God give them the victory. From this story we learn of the victory of God. But this story does not begin here. It begins almost 40 years and 1 generation before. This is where I want to begin

Today I want to look at the prepartion to receiveing the victory.

This moring I would like to look at some principles that we must realize before we gain begin to recieve a victory from God.

I. The victory is already won

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them. (Numbers 13:1-2 AV)

Now we know from Deut 1:20-22 that it was not God’s original plan to send the spies. He only did it to appease the unbelief of the Israelites. But notice what he tells them.

Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan, which I give"

Notice the victory is already one. God sends these spies out to seach a land that to them was not theirs but God says it will be theirs. The victory over this land is theirs. God has given it to them and if God is for us who can be against us.

He is telling them that no matter what the spies report the land is theirs. Not because of what they see but because of who they serve.

The first principle to receiving a victory from God is to understand that he has already won. The battle has already been fought. It began almost 6,000 years ago with the fall of Adam. For centruies it seemed to go back and forth between God and Satan until God put a finallity to it. When Christ died it seemed to be the end of all but with the ressurection it began a new. Now the victory has been won. Isaiah understood this when he wrote of Christ:

Isa 53:5 But he [was] wounded for our transgressions, [he was] bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace [was] upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. {wounded: or, tormented} {stripes: Heb. bruise}

II. What seems impossible for man is not impossible for God

And they returned from searching of the land after forty days. And they went and came to Moses, and to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh; and brought back word unto them, and unto all the congregation, and shewed them the fruit of the land. And they told him, and said, We came unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of it.

Nevertheless the people be strong that dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak there. The Amalekites dwell in the land of the south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of Jordan. (Numbers 13:25-29 AV)
