But listen carefully to everything I command you today. Then I will go ahead of you and drive out the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites. (Exodus 34:11 NLT)
When God promise something and He start to move us strategically, one thing that we need to get ready is to face the unfamiliar enemies.
It is very tricky, how can you prepare when you don’t know anything about your enemies?
Every new place has a new battle for us to fight – which we never fought before!
The only way to prepare is to follow the order given by God by being diligent to listen, obey and trust in His leading.
It is very important on how we drive our first enemy! That will set the stage in how we handle the others.
When it comes to entering the promise land, we also have to realize that we are entering the enemies territory controlled by sin, shame, fear, guilt, deception and oppression.
These all has to be defeated beginning from sin, which we can do only by the blood of Jesus!
They conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not love their lives in the face of death. Revelation 12:11
