By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about seven days. Hebrew 11:30
TEXT: Joshua 6:20
20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets:and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
Jericho was a great city with great walls round about it. It was well protected that no one went in or came out without being noticed. One might not be wrong to say that their security network was very tight. It took divine war strategy to pull down the walls of Jericho.
Before Joshua could conquer Jericho, he had to adhere strictly to divine strategy and what was that strategy? God told Joshua to compass the city about for six days consecutively (Joshua 6:3) and on the seventh day, they should compass it about for seven times and then give a great shout. Joshua and the Isrealites carried out the instructions to the letter and shouted a great short after compassing the city about 7 times, immediately the walls of Jericho were brought down flat.
I don’t know the walls of Jericho in your life today, it is time to pull them down. However, before Joshua and the children of Israel pulled down the Jericho walls they had to compass the city for seven days and then gave a shout.
Your compassing the city about and shouting, might be for you to add fire to your prayer, or fast for few days, or increase your evangelism or work more for God. Now, try to find out what God is telling you concerning that situation. Joshua adhered strictly to the instructions of God and had victory at the end. If you can adhere to the instructions of God today, you will shout down your own walls of Jericho.
. First ask God to give you strategy to tackle that problem.
. No matter how big or impossible your case may be, ask God to pull it down as He did for Joshua.

If you want to give your life to JESUS pray this short prayer with me:
Almighty God, I come unto you in the name of Jesus. Father I confess that I am a sinner. All my sins I confess to you. I am very sorry for all my sins.
Lord I promise you that from today I will never continue in them anymore.
I believe that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day for my justification. Almighty God, use the blood of Jesus to wash my sins away. Lord Jesus, come into my heart, be my Lord and Personal Savior.
I surrender my life to you.
Cancel my name from the book of death and give me grace to make Heaven. AMEN!
