The first assignment God gave to Joshua was impossible in the natural. God said, "Go over this Jordan" It was flood time, and the waters of the raging river were impossible to cross. But God said "go over" and He promised:
Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. (Joshua 1:3-5)
The land was theirs, but they had to claim it:
Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye are passed over Jordan into the land of Canaan; Then ye shall drive out all the inhabitants of the land from before you, and destroy all their pictures, and destroy all their molten images, and quite pluck down all their high places: And ye shall dispossess the inhabitants of the land, and dwell therein: for I have given you the land to possess it. And ye shall divide the land by lot for an inheritance among your families: and to the more ye shall give the more inheritance, and to the fewer ye shall give the less inheritance: every man's inheritance shall be in the place where his lot falleth; according to the tribes of your fathers ye shall inherit.
(Numbers 33:51-53. )
God gave Israel 300,000 miles of territory as part of their covenant promises, but they only claimed 30,000 miles at any given time. The land was theirs unconditionally, but the possession of it was conditional upon their obedience.
How much spiritual territory and how many promises of God have you not yet claimed? God is saying to you, as He did to Joshua, "Arise and go...I have given you the land." And the very first task He gives you may seem impossible.
You may not have to cross a flooded river, but you may be facing a flood of opposition. You may be engulfed in a flood of financial problems. You may face a torrent of persecution. In the natural, you may lack the education, talents, and abilities for what God is calling you to do. But you are not living in the natural. You are living in the supernatural.
Begin with the impossible and watch God make your impossibilities possible. Look into the invisible and dare to do the impossible.
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
