"FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN BRINGS VICTORY"

BY GOD’S POWER

JOSHUA 6:2-5

INTRODUCTION:FROM ETERNITY PAST INTO THE TIMELESS ETERNITY THAT IS TO COME, GOD HAS HAD A PLAN. GOD IS A GOD OF PURPOSE AND HE FORMS HIS PLANS TO FULLFILL HIS DIVINE PURPOSE FOR HIS CREATION. THE WORD OF RECORDS MANY OF GODS PLANS FOR INDIVIDUAL PEOPLE AND NATIONS. AND I AM GLAD TO REPORT THAT ALL OF GOD’S PLANS BRING VICTORY. IN FACT YOU WILL NEVER FIND ONE TIME WHERE GOD’S PLAN FAILED. GOD MAKES PLANS THAT WILL SUCCEED EVERYTHING GOD HAS ORGANIZED WAS DESIGNED TO BRING VICTORY.

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND THAT WHEN GOD TELLS US TO DO SOMETHING A CERTAIN WAY, IT IS PART OF HIS PLAN TO BRING US VICTORY. HE DOES NOT INTEND FOR HIS PLAN TO FAIL. THE ONLY WAY GOD’S PLAN CAN FAIL IS IF WE FAIL TO EXECUTE HIS PLAN THE WAY HE TOLD US TO DO IT. WHEN BELIEVERS DON’T EXECUTE GOD’S PLAN IN THEIR LIVES, SATAN IS ABLE TO STEAL THE VICTORY THAT IS RIGHTFULLY THEIRS IN CHRIST. EVEN IN THE NATURAL, EVERYTHING HAS TO EXECUTE ACCORDING TO THE PLAN ,CONSTRUCTION-HOMES, OFFICE BUILDING, CARS, ENGINES, DRESS PLANS. IF HENRY HOMES, MITCHELL HOMES, AND OTHER BUILDERS CAN PRODUES FROM THEIR PLANS, HOME SO ATTRACTIVE THAT WE BUY THEM. IF GM, FORD, TOYOTA, NISSIAN, MAZDA, CAN PRODUCE SUCCESSFUL CARS FROM A PLAN HOW MUCH MORE DO YOU SUPPOSE WE CAN ACCOMPLISH AND WIN THE VICTORY IF WE FOLLOW GOD’S PLANFOR US, HIS VERY OWN CHILDREN.

IN THE TEXT PASSAGE WE HEAR THE LORD AS HE SPEAKS WITH JOSHUA, WE HEAR HIM GIVE A DETAILED PLAN FOR CONQUERING A CITY NAMED JERICO. THE PLAN WAS GOD’S PLA, IT HAD EXACT SPECIFICATIONS. THEY HAD TO ADHERE TO, OR IT WOULDN’T WORK.

VERSE 2: JOSHUA THE CITY IS YOURS, BUT YOU MUST CARRY OUT MY PLAN. NO MAN CAN WITHSTAND YOU, THE KING THE MIGHTY MAN OF VALOUR NO ONE CAN HANDLE YOU IF YOU CARRY OUT MY PLAN. SOME MAY ARGUE AMONG YOU JOSHUA, SOME MAY SAY, WE DON’T NEED SEVEN,SIX WILL DO JUST FINE. REMIND YOURSELF THAT WHAT MAN THINKS ABOUT MY PLAN DOESN’T MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE, NO REASONING AMONG THEM WILL HELP.I SAID SEVEN AND IF YOU WANT THE VICTORY I AM OFFERING YOU, CARRY OUT MY PLAN.

GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR EVERYTHING IN HIS PLAN, AND HE EXPECTS HIS PEOPLE TO EXECUTE HIS PLAN EXACTLY AS HE INSTRUCTS THEM.

THERE ARE THREE THINGS THAT THE TEXT TEACHES WHERE PLANS ARE CONCERNED.

(1) UNDERSTAND THAT IF GOD PLAN:

(A) SATAN ALSO SPEAKS TO US.

(B) TRY THE SPIRIT BY THE SPIRIT.

(C)CONFRIM EVERYTHING BY THE HOLY SPIRIT-(LEAD AND GUIDE PURPOSE)

(2) TREAT THE PLAN WITH THE RESPECT IT DESERVES:

5:13-15 READ "WHEN THE CAPTAIN OF THE LORD’S HOST GAVE HIS IDENTITY, JOSHUA IMMEDIATELY RECOGNIZED THAT GOD HAD SENT HIS CAPTAIN TO HELP JOSHUA FIGHT THE ENEMY IN JERICHO. JOSHUA FIRST QUESTION WAS:

"WHAT SAITH MY LORD UNTO HIS SERVANT?" INSTEAD OF ANSWERING THE NIGHT AWAY THE CAPTAIN OF THE LORD’S HOST TOLD JOSHUA "TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES THE GROUND YOU’RE STANDING ON IS HOLY"

(3) FOLLOW THE PLAN COMPLETELY:

THE FALL OF JERICHO:

WHEN GOD SENT JONA TO NINVEH- HE HAD A PLAN, (VICTORY)

WHEN ISRAEL LEFT EGYPT GOD HAD A PLAN, (VICYORY.

WHEN GOD SAID TO JOSHUA CLEAR THE LAND OF EVIL INFLUENCE. HE HAD A PLAN
