For Christ’s love impels us, since we have reached this conclusion: If One died for all, then all died. 2 Corinthians 5:14 HCSB

http://bible.com/72/2co.5.14.HCSB
To be impelled is to be actuated, controlled, and propelled by a very strong desire. Our text reveals the believer experiences this through Christ’s love. 
Beloved, anyone in Christ is a slave of righteousness intoxicated and impelled by His love. Just as His love for the Father led Him obediently to the cross, whoever that’s impelled by His love, lives obediently and sacrificially to the Father. You cannot be impelled by His love until you taste it, and you cannot be compelled to taste His love. Your life will never be the same after tasting it, but it’ll be useless until it tastes and is impelled by His love. Every life impelled by His love becomes obedience freak and lacks nothing good. Are you ready for such radical change? 
Grace upon grace!

When Joshua was by Jericho, he lifted up his eyes and looked, and behold, a man was standing before him with his drawn sword in his hand. And Joshua went to him and said to him, “Are you for us, or for our adversaries?” Joshua 5:13 ESV

http://bible.com/59/jos.5.13.ESV
Since the Fall, life has been a series of battles marked with either victories or defeat depending on strategy and resources. Our text reveals the victory agent and resource of the believer. 
Beloved, Joshua was victorious because he identified, aligned with the victory agent and used the strategy provided by God. He was able to identify the victory agent because he looked up. Looking up means trusting and appealing to God for help. There’s a victory agent and strategy for every battle in your life. Until you look up, you wont identify him, until you identify him, you wont align with him. Until you align with him, you wont know the strategy. Until you know the strategy, you wont use it, and until you use it, you wont know victory. It’s all your choice!

If we say we live in God, we must live the way Jesus lived. 1 John 2:6 ERV

http://bible.com/406/1jn.2.6.ERV
Living like Jesus is to think, speak and act like Jesus! Our text reveals living like Jesus is not optional for any who claims to belong to God.
Beloved a Christian is none other than a person who’s dead in himself but living in God. Anyone living in God cannot live in any other way apart from the way Jesus lived. Living like Jesus or in God is the only guarantee for victory and excellence on earth. Living in God is to breath, feed, drink, think and speak the Word. This invariably is to live by faith, because faith is a product of the Word. Living by faith is to live in righteousness and obedience to God. Only faith can guarantee your not drifting away from the right track when faced with inevitable very stiff oppositions!

And the Lord said to Joshua, “Today I have rolled away the reproach of Egypt from you.” And so the name of that place is called Gilgal to this day. Joshua 5:9 ESV

http://bible.com/59/jos.5.9.ESV
Slavery brings unnecessary shame, reproach and ridicule. Our text reveals Gilgal as the place of rolling away and removal of such. 
Beloved, until the Jews got to Gilgal there was no circumcision, until they were circumcised, they were under a reproach, until the reproach was rolled away, they weren’t part of the Covenant community. Until they became part of this community, life was a drag and full of struggling, therefore they made little or no progress. You must get to your Gilgal to  have a Gilgal experience. You must have a Gilgal experience to get rid of your sins, shame and unnecessary weights, as well as be a part of the covenant community. You must become part of this covenant community to have a relationship with God. You must have this relationship to cease from struggling and experience real progress and promotion in life. Are you ready for your Gilgal experience?

Delight yourself in the Lord , and he will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4 ESV

http://bible.com/59/psa.37.4.ESV
Heart desire is whatever you want or long for earnestly with deep passion. Our text reveals having this met, is very possible dependent on your relationship with the Lord. 
Beloved, when you take pleasure in doing what the Lord wants, serving Him, and being happy with Him; He’ll take pleasure in doing whatever you want, because whatever you want will be in harmony with and very pleasing to Him. When He takes pleasure in doing what you want, then all your heart desires will be met and fulfilled. When all your desires are met, you’ll have unlimited  happiness! Do you have any unfulfilled dream or desire? Find out what the Lord said about it and take pleasure in doing it, then you’ll have whatever is your desire!
Grace upon grace!

And when the soles of the feet of the priests bearing the ark of the Lord, the Lord of all the earth, shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off from flowing, and the waters coming down from above shall stand in one heap.” Joshua 3:13 ESV

http://bible.com/59/jos.3.13.ESV
On the brink of entering the Promised Land stood River Jordan as an obstacle. Until it’s crossed there will be no possession. Our text reveals the priests did nothing but obediently stepped into the river and it miraculously was cut off. 
Beloved, between you and every promise of God lies an obstacle. Ask Moses, Naaman, and others. Stepping into the obstacle says I trust You Lord to entrust my life into Your hands. Until you obediently step into it, it’ll not give way, until it gives way, you’ll not overcome it, and until you overcome it, you’ll be left outside your possession. Yours is to simply obey, even when you can’t fathom it, the miracle is the Lord’s to perform

Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given to you, just as I promised to Moses. Joshua 1:3 ESV

http://bible.com/59/jos.1.3.ESV
A Promise determines action, action activates a promise and spells excellence. Our text reveals one of the promises that spelt Joshua’s excellence. 
Beloved, wherever Joshua believed God’s word ’twas his own and backed such believe with the action of stepping in to take possession, no matter the degree of obstacles and oppositions became his. The Bible is filled with several promises of God to you for salvation. Whichever you believe and take appropriate actions demonstrating your belief, becomes your experience. How difficult, impossible and impracticable it seems isn’t important so long as you believe enough to act on it.

Jesus said to the man with the crippled hand, “Stand up here so that everyone can see you.” Mark 3:3 ERV

http://bible.com/406/mrk.3.3.ERV
Appointment with Divine Destiny is that encounter with Jesus that brings  your dreams, desires and God’s design for you to a reality. Our text reveals the man with the crippled hand has this. 
Beloved, satan didn’t want him healed, demonstrated by the action of the authorities, but because he was there at the appointed time, believed and obeyed the Word, he became unstoppable. Today is your date with Divine Destiny, because you’re here, everything the enemy stole, delayed or hindered you from having or becoming, the Lord is restoring. You only need to believe and obey His command, no matter how impossible, impracticable and unreasonable it is, then you’ll experience it!

The one on the throne said to me, “It is finished! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give free water from the spring of the water of life to anyone who is thirsty. Revelation 21:6 ERV

http://bible.com/406/rev.21.6.ERV
It’s finished is a signature statement signaling completion and finality. Our text reveals that which the Lord promised, He has already accomplished. 
Beloved, while on the cross Jesus said its finished! Back in heaven He repeated it’s finished! First He paid up your debt of sin, and later made everything disfigured, distorted and damaged by the debt anew. Having made everything new, He restored all you’ve lost or will lose. Since you no longer have any loss, therefore you shouldn’t suffer any loss. Your degree of believing what He said, no matter the conflicting and contradicting signs and feelings, determines your degree of receiving and experiencing it!

Give instructions to Joshua. Encourage and strengthen him, because he will lead these people across ⌊the Jordan River⌋, and he will help them take possession of the land you see.” Deuteronomy 3:28 GW

http://bible.com/70/deu.3.28.GW
Every divine mandate face proportional challenges and oppositions which demands a combination of commissioning, encouragement and strengthening to overcome. Our text reveals this in Joshua’s life. 
Beloved, every promise and call of God in your life is a mandate. Wherever you’re at any given moment, your marriage, office, school, bus or train, there’s a mandate awaiting fulfillment. Your commissioning which is  receiving instructions, encouragement and strengthening, without which you cannot excel,

usually comes through human channels. It takes diligent obedience, loyalty and submission to   the Lord and your superior to receive this.  Once received, excellence is activated. 
Grace upon grace!
