Unexpected wealth

Exodus 12:36 (NLT)“The LORD made the Egyptians look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave them everything they asked for.

Proverbs 21:31“The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD.” When we talk of Victory, we automatically talk of battle and combat. Indeed, there is no victory without a fight. Just as when we are in the Lord and let him act, there should be no battle without […]

Shout and praise God for your victory

Joshua 6:20“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 […]

“All heart” to be strong

Joshua 14:11“I am as strong now as I was when Moses sent me on that journey, and I can still travel and fight as well as I could then.” Israel remained outside of Canaan for forty-five years because the people feared the descendants of Anak, a great and strong people who lived in the hill […]

The blessing of the Lord for a great harvest

Genesis 26:12-13“When Isaac planted his crops that year, he harvested a hundred times more grain than he planted, for the LORD blessed him.

God’s Presence set me apart from all other people

Exodus 33:16“How will anyone know that you look favorably on me—on me and on your people—if you don’t go with us?
