Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 22 October 2022 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – Biblical Examples Of Men That Walked In The Spirit: Joshua
TOPIC: Biblical Examples Of Men That Walked In The Spirit: Joshua (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 22 October 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 48, Jeremiah 49:1-6, 2 Timothy 1, Psalm 119:81-88
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Joshua 24 (KJV)
1 And Joshua gathered all the tribes of Israel to Shechem, and called for the elders of Israel, and for their heads, and for their judges, and for their officers; and they presented themselves before God.
2 And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the Lord God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, even Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
3 And I took your father Abraham from the other side of the flood, and led him throughout all the land of Canaan, and multiplied his seed, and gave him Isaac.
4 And I gave unto Isaac Jacob and Esau: and I gave unto Esau mount Seir, to possess it; but Jacob and his children went down into Egypt.
5 I sent Moses also and Aaron, and I plagued Egypt, according to that which I did among them: and afterward I brought you out.
6 And I brought your fathers out of Egypt: and ye came unto the sea; and the Egyptians pursued after your fathers with chariots and horsemen unto the Red sea.
7 And when they cried unto the Lord, he put darkness between you and the Egyptians, and brought the sea upon them, and covered them; and your eyes have seen what I have done in Egypt: and ye dwelt in the wilderness a long season.
8 And I brought you into the land of the Amorites, which dwelt on the other side Jordan; and they fought with you: and I gave them into your hand, that ye might possess their land; and I destroyed them from before you.
9 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.
11 And you went over Jordan, and came unto Jericho: and the men of Jericho fought against you, the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites; and I delivered them into your hand.
12 And I sent the hornet before you, which drave them out from before you, even the two kings of the Amorites; but not with thy sword, nor with thy bow.
13 And I have given you a land for which ye did not labour, and cities which ye built not, and ye dwell in them; of the vineyards and oliveyards which ye planted not do ye eat.
14 Now therefore fear the Lord, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the Lord.
15 And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
16 And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the Lord, to serve other gods;
17 For the Lord our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:
18 And the Lord drave out from before us all the people, even the Amorites which dwelt in the land: therefore will we also serve the Lord; for he is our God.
19 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the Lord: for he is an holy God; he is a jealous God; he will not forgive your transgressions nor your sins.
20 If ye forsake the Lord, and serve strange gods, then he will turn and do you hurt, and consume you, after that he hath done you good.
21 And the people said unto Joshua, Nay; but we will serve the Lord.
22 And Joshua said unto the people, Ye are witnesses against yourselves that ye have chosen you the Lord, to serve him. And they said, We are witnesses.
23 Now therefore put away, said he, the strange gods which are among you, and incline your heart unto the Lord God of Israel.
24 And the people said unto Joshua, The Lord our God will we serve, and his voice will we obey.
25 So Joshua made a covenant with the people that day, and set them a statute and an ordinance in Shechem.
26 And Joshua wrote these words in the book of the law of God, and took a great stone, and set it up there under an oak, that was by the sanctuary of the Lord.
27 And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the Lord which he spake unto us: it shall be therefore a witness unto you, lest ye deny your God.
28 So Joshua let the people depart, every man unto his inheritance.
29 And it came to pass after these things, that Joshua the son of Nun, the servant of the Lord, died, being an hundred and ten years old.
30 And they buried him in the border of his inheritance in Timnathserah, which is in mount Ephraim, on the north side of the hill of Gaash.
31 And Israel served the Lord all the days of Joshua, and all the days of the elders that overlived Joshua, and which had known all the works of the Lord, that he had done for Israel.
32 And the bones of Joseph, which the children of Israel brought up out of Egypt, buried they in Shechem, in a parcel of ground which Jacob bought of the sons of Hamor the father of Shechem for an hundred pieces of silver: and it became the inheritance of the children of Joseph.
33 And Eleazar the son of Aaron died; and they buried him in a hill that pertained to Phinehas his son, which was given him in mount Ephraim.
MEMORY VERSE: “And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” – Joshua 24:15
I am on the Lord’s side.

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
Joshua was firm on his decision about God. If you carefully study the life of Joshua, you will notice that he had a very deep passion for God. He would always follow Moses to the mountain and wait beneath for him. Even when he was sent as one of the spies and truly saw that the people that possessed the land were giants, he believed the God of Israel to give them the land. After the death of Moses, he in no way failed to continue in the laws and commandments handed down to him. He led the people in the fear of God. He had a relationship with God. He was a faithful disciple to Moses.

Joshua was a fighter. He built his faith and courage on the book of the law as the Lord instructed him to. He was probably afraid to continue from where Moses stopped because he had carefully observed the children of Israel, and knew that they were a tough people to lead, therefore God told him to always study and meditate and speak His word, day and night. The Lord also told him that He would be with him as He was with Moses. Joshua believed God, and went in the strength of God’s word and prospered in his ministry.
The lessons we must learn from the life of Joshua are as follows:
- He served his master humbly and faithfully.
- He believed God’s instruction and obeyed them.
- He was a prayer warrior.
- He led God’s people according to the laws of God.
- He loved the presence of the Lord.
- He was a mighty man of valour.
- He stood firm on the side of the Lord.
Dear reader, what about you? Are you a Joshua in your generation? In the midst of your peers, are you a Joshua? Are you faithfully committed to the leader God has placed over you? Would you rather be in the midst of unbelievers or in the presence of the Most High? Are you complaining or are You gaining the grounds that the Lord has given you to possess? These men had like passion as you and I, but they made their mark. Let us follow these good examples so that the destinies attached to ours will arise, shine and give glory to God because of us.
- O God, arise and destroy every demonic embargo keeping my head on the ground, in the name of Jesus.
- O God of Elijah, bury every power from my place of birth that has vowed that my life will never manifest God’s greatness, in the name of Jesus.
- The gift of God in me that has been made dormant, receive the resurrection power of Jesus Christ and come alive now, in the name of Jesus.
- Grace to serve my leaders faithfully and humbly, come upon me, in the name of Jesus.
- Arrows of the wicked fired to hinder my glory from manifesting, backfire, in the name of Jesus.
- Power to possess my Promise Land, enter me now, in the name of Jesus.
- I confess Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour all the days of my life, in the name of Jesus.
