WHAT DO YOU DO

WHEN YOU HIT THE WALL?
March 20 & 21, 2010 Tierce Green

“When Joshua was near Jericho, he looked up and saw a man standing in
front of him with a drawn sword in His hand. Joshua approached Him and
asked, ‘Are You for us or for our enemies?’
“‘Neither,’ He replied. ‘I have now come as commander of the Lord’s army.’
“Then Joshua bowed his face to the ground in worship and asked Him,
‘What does my Lord want to say to His servant?’
“The commander of the Lord’s army said to Joshua, ‘Remove the sandals
from your feet for the place where you are standing is holy.’ And Joshua did
so.”
Joshua 5:13-15 (HCSB)

1. TAKE OFF YOUR SHOES
“The commander of the Lord’s army said to Joshua, ‘Remove the
sandals from your feet for the place where you are standing is
holy.’ And Joshua did so.”
Joshua 5:15 (HCSB)

- A place of humility.
- An act of surrender.

BEFORE YOU HIT THE RELATIONSHIPS WALL
“Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as
more important than yourselves. Everyone should look out not [only] for
his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” Philippians 2:3-4
(HCSB)
2. STICK TO THE PLAN
“The Lord said to Joshua, ‘Look, I have handed Jericho, its king,
and its fighting men over to you. March around the city with all
the men of war, circling the city one time. Do this for six days. Have
seven priests carry seven ram’s-horn trumpets in front of the ark. But
on the seventh day, march around the city seven times, while the
priests blow the trumpets. When there is a prolonged blast of the
horn and you hear its sound, have all the people give a mighty
shout. Then the city wall will collapse and the people will advance,
each man straight ahead.’"
Joshua 6:3-5 (HCSB)

- Regardless of time.
- Regardless of circumstances.

3. FALL BEFORE JESUS
“ … Then Joshua bowed his face to the ground in worship
and asked Him, ‘What does my Lord want to say to His
servant?’” Joshua 5:14 (HCSB)

- A position of worship.
- An attitude of obedience.

“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
James 4:6 (NIV)

“Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but
with God all things are possible.’”
Matthew 19:26 (NIV)
