I READ: Joshua 5:1-9

The parting of the Jordan river and the collapse of the wall of Jericho were great miracles that proved God’s defense over the nation of Israel. But these great events happened after the Israelites agreed on a commitment to sanctify themselves from their old life that was full of sins and compromise.  They committed to devoting themselves to God.  Sanctification was symbolized by their circumcision in Gilgal.  After they sanctified themselves, they received a new anointing from the Holy Spirit.   As Jesus’ disciples, we also need to have a commitment to live a holy life by guarding our heart, mind, words, body and soul so that we are not contaminated by this world.  If we obey this, the anointing of the Holy Spirit will be poured out abundantly over us and we will do miraculous works with the Lord.

I DECLARE: 1 Peter 1:16 – because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.”

I DO: What actions am I going to take after meditating on the Word of God?

I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit
