* Recap -- Canaan -- Flow -- Fruit -- Achievement -- Production -- Success

* Joshua has spoken to them...

...they have taken care of Now








Now SEE (C) Jericho

* See I have delivered (KJV)

* See I have given

„X Not the walls of Jericho

„X Given Jericho the plunder

„X The only stronghold

* As we conclude I want you to begin to see what God has given and is waiting for you

* Because you took care of now

* You did the (c's)

* See what He is giving you

* You may not have it yet

* But I want you to see it!

* I have worn out...




* Here is See

* The word "see" equals:

„X To perceive

„X To perceive by viewing

„X To become conscious of something

"See what I am saying"

* I believe if you can see it...

...you can seize it!

* It is possible to have eye sight but not be able to see

* How you see something makes all the difference in the world

EXAMPLE: Drunk glasses

* The walls don't have to come down before you see

* Perhaps we need to see before the walls come down

* The greatest tragedy is to have eye sight and no vision

* And a great blessing is to have Jericho -- obstacles -- trouble all around yet...

o ...see what God has given you

Matthew 5:8

Blessed are the pure in heart,

for they will see God.

* Have you ever noticed how routine can dull what you see

* Driving the same way everyday...you don't see

* Your relationship with God can become so routine that you don't see

Genesis 13:14-15

14 The LORD said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, "Lift up your eyes from where you are and look north and south, east and west. 15 All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever.

* God told Abraham...


* If you can't see yourself blessed...it's hard to be blessed

* You usually get what you see

EXAMPLES: from my life

Aaron Jayne

* You can't victimize me if I see myself blessed

* Head not tail

* Jericho is tightly shut

„X No flow

„X No fruit

* But see beyond it

o See the flow

o See the fruit

o See the favor

* Stop seeing what is shut up...

...and start seeing the flow

* This week only see the good

* The way you see yourself is so important!
