“SPEAKING STRENGTH TO YOUR LEGS”

Joshua 10:28-39 KJV
[28] And that day Joshua took MAKKEDAH, and… he utterly destroyed, them,…
[29] Then Joshua passed from Makkedah, and all Israel with him, unto Libnah, and fought against LIBNAH:

–>

[30] And the Lord delivered it also,…
[31] And Joshua passed from Libnah, and all Israel with him, unto LACHISH, and encamped against it, and fought against it:
[32] And the Lord delivered Lachish into the hand of Israel, which took it on the second day, and smote it…
[33] Then Horam king of GEZER came up to help Lachish; and Joshua smote him and his people, until he had left him none remaining.

[34] And from Lachish Joshua passed unto EGLON , and all Israel with him; and they encamped against it, and fought against it:
[35] And they took it on that day,
[36] And Joshua went up from Eglon, and all Israel with him, unto Hebron; and they fought against it:
[37] And they took it, and smote it…
[38] And Joshua returned, and all Israel with him, to DEBIR; and fought against it:
[39] And he took it, and the king thereof, and all the cities thereof; and they smote them.

One of the major marks of the man who would fulfill destiny and manifest greatly in his ministry and calling is: Diligence. Hard-Working. In addition to his Faith in the Lord Jesus. When the Lord promises to make you great in life and ministry, He will not put His blessing and anointing on Laziness, Inactiveness, Indifference and Slothfulness.

If you are praying that the Lord would anoint you for His purpose, then, you must be ready to accomplish the visions and assignments He would place in your heart in answer to the prayers. When the Lord made Adam in the garden of Eden, he committed into his hand the tendering of the Garden of Eden and gave him a major job of giving names to all the animals and birds in the Garden.

When the Lord called Noah, he gave him an unusual assignment of building an Ark for the rescue of the whole world. Solomon, the son of David manifested in his lifetime by the building of the Temple of Solomon. When the Lord called Gideon, it was a call unto service of deliverance of Israel from the hands of the Midianites.

TO CONQUER THE LAND, YOU HAVE TO BE DILIGENT AND HARD-WORKING with your Visions and Calling.
IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO CARRY VISIONS ON YOUR HEAD WITHOUT ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT.
AND IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO CARRY VISION IN YOUR HEAD WITHOUT A MISSION IN YOUR HAND.
THE VISION IN YOUR HEAD GIVES THE MISSION IN YOUR HAND AND PUTS POSSESSION ON YOUR LEGS.

When you pray and fast unto the Lord for Anointing to Function in the area of your Calling and Ministry, then, be ready to actualize fantastic, uncommon and unusual ideas the Lord will place on your heart.
In the year 2013, the Lord said to us in Mount Zion and to other Drama Ministries, “2013: The Year of Open Doors”. It was the year the Spirit of the Lord declared for us to go into 100 days of Fasting and Prayer. And it was the year we were bombarded with multiple visions and accelerated ability to make movies.

In Mount Zion alone, we were on film locations for more than twenty times, and we released almost 20 movies because many of us in the ministry were on simultaneous film locations, and we were shooting movies back to back. It was the year we shot a movie in Hindi language in the northern part of India. We shot the movie “RUPANTAR” in New Delhi, India.

It was the year we shot movies in Canada, Australia and Maryland,USA. Some of our brethren in Mount Zion were in Zambia, Togo, Benin Republic to hold drama schools and shoot movies with the drama students. The Lord said He would give us Open Doors and ordered us to fast and Pray for it and we did. And the doors opened before us all massively.

It was the year the power of God came mightily on some of our biological children in Mount Zion and they were filled with wisdom to operate in diverse areas of movie productions aspect. Today, inside our ministry, among our children are fantastic Directors of Photography, Movie Editors, Continuity Managers, Script Writers and movie Director.
My wife and I were out of the country, on mission trip, when our two sons wrote, produced, and handled the Camera with many of the children of Mount Zion as crew members and surrounded by casts from other well-beloved drama ministries to make one of the best movies in Mount Zion: “IGNITION”.

I know many events took place inside many drama ministries which received that spiritual Impartations of the Year of Open Door, but I have given examples of what we experienced when Anointing comes upon you to function.
Laziness would make some people receive ideas for a new script, without rising up to put down the vision plainly on a paper. A lot of time is seriously waisted on the social media to chat or browse.

Slothfulness will not allow an inspiring and fantastic visions of an outreach program or ideas of an unusual musical production to be embarked upon. Lack of focus and seriousness would not allow a man who ought to have shot a script into realistic movie to do so by act of procrastination.
Some people are just lazy and indifference.
Lack of commitment has not allowed the gifts of scripting, acting and producing in some people to manifest, because they do not want to be committed in the ministry among their church drama group.

A LAZY MAN HAS NO PORTION IN CANAAN LAND.
Now let us look at above passage again and observe the daily routine of Joshua and the warriors of Israel,, when they came upon the Canaan Land. Joshua 10:28-39
IF THE LORD HAS PROMISED TO GIVE YOU ALL THE LAND THE SOLES OF YOUR FEET SHALL TREAD, THEN, TAKE HOLD OF YOUR LEGS, AND SPEAK STRENGTH TO YOUR LEGS, BECAUSE YOU CAN ONLY BE GIVEN POWER TO POSSESS THE VISION YOU CONQUER.

Hear the Summary of Joshua’s Exploits:
Joshua 10:40-42 KJV
[40] So Joshua smote all the country of the hills, and of the south, and of the vale, and of the springs, and all their kings: he left none remaining, but utterly destroyed all that breathed, as the Lord God of Israel commanded.
[41] And Joshua smote them from Kadesh-barnea even unto Gaza, and all the country of Goshen, even unto Gibeon.
[42] And all these kings and their land did Joshua take at one time, because the Lord God of Israel fought for Israel.

Yes, THE LORD FOUGHT FOR ISRAEL, BUT JOSHUA WAS UP TO STEP ON THOSE LANDS.
Do you realize that the greatest offence of a man of Vision is laziness and slothfulness. In Matthew 25:27-30, the man who buried the talents was judged bitterly.

Matthew 25:26, 30 NKJV
[26] But his lord answered and said to him, ‘You wicked and lazy servant, you knew that I reap where I have not sown, and gather where I have not scattered seed.
[30] And cast the unprofitable servant into the outer darkness. There will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

That was where I knew that God is angry with laziness and slothfulness. The Man with one talent could not use it because he was lazy and slothful.
When next you are praying for Expansion and increase or asking the Lord for anointing for Enlargement, GET READY TO TAKE HOLD OF YOUR LEGS, BECAUSE YOU WILL BE GIVEN THE LAND YOU STEP UPON. AND IT SHALL COME TO PASS.

I speak to my legs.
I shall not be weary or tired.
May my legs be delivered from all chains that threaten to slow them down.
