Summary: Observe, Joshua did not do that himself but he was instilling grit and guts in the hearts of his leaders.
The enemy is under your feet!
Joshua 10:24 "Come near, put your feet on the necks of these kings." So they came near and put their feet on their necks.”
This scripture is too awesome, I want you guys to really comprehend the spiritual truth behind this atom bomb verse and get reenergized and rejuvenated. Say Amen. You are going to feel so fresh and cool that you would start dancing and once again run back to doing what you did earlier for God. Hurray! Let me expound the scripture to start with, five kings of the Amorites, the king of Jerusalem, the king of Hebron, the king of Jarmuth, the king of Lachish, the king of Eglon, gathered themselves together, and went up, they and all their hosts, and encamped before Gibeon, and made war against it. Such a big army gathered against Gideon because they had made a covenant with Joshua and the children of Israel. The enemies were well aware that the Lord was backing the people of Israel and now since Gibeon was in covenant with Joshua , they get the covering too , therefore a huge army came against Gibeon.
Friend, whenever you team up with a godly person to attend group prayer, Bible study and prayer cell, be sure to be attacked by the devil, that’s exactly why we need to diligently pray for all the people connected with us. The enemy hates corporate fellowship because there is power in unity! Youth Leaders, prayer group leaders! Attention! Write the names of all your team members , their family and pray, this is essential. Joshua gets the green signal from God, read: “The LORD said to Joshua, "Do not fear them, for I have given them into your hands; not one of them shall stand before you."(verse 8) When we have God on our side, there is nothing to fear, though.
The five kings were captured and brought to a great gathering where all the people of Israel (verse 24) and the chiefs of the men of war were present and Joshua asked the chiefs of the men of war to come near and put their feet on the neck of the kings. Observe, Joshua did not do that himself but he was instilling grit and guts in the hearts of his leaders. He also said, “do not fear, God will likewise do to all your enemies with whom you fight." Friend, what is choking you today? Are you choked and smothered with self-condemnation, guilt, debts, addiction, past life; whatever, put them under your feet today and gain victory over your enemies. Confess today, “I am not beneath but above!” Romans 16:20”The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.”
