DAY NINE: “Strongholds” (Judges 2:2-3)- Do Not Go Through the Motions

Good morning. Great is His faithfulness.


Judges 2:2-3

And you shall make no [a]covenant with the inhabitants of this land; you shall tear down their altars.’ But you have not obeyed My voice. Why have you done this? 3 Therefore I also said, ‘I will not drive them out before you; but they shall be thorns[b] in your side, and their gods shall [c]be a snare to you.’ ”

The Lord gave the Israelites detailed instructions on how to handle the Canaanites because of their idol worshipping. But the Israelites compromised with the Canaanites because of their own weakness of the flesh. It was the life style and religion of the Canaanites that appealed to the Israelites sinful natures. The Israelites went through the motions which resulted in their apostasy to the Lord.

"Do not underestimate the destructive power of sin. If there are "STRONGHOLDS" in your life that you have never defeated, the Holy Spirit is still prepared to bring you complete victory."

(Experiencing God Day by Day devotional, page 185)

Fasting is a great weapon against obliterating sin. By going through the motions we set ourselves up for failure. I went through the motions with God from 2018-2020, and the Light finally went on in 2021, and I have been doing the Lord's work ever since then.

Numbers 6:24-26

“The Lord bless you and keep you;

25 The Lord make His face shine upon you,

And be gracious to you;

26 The Lord [a]lift up His countenance upon you,

And give you peace.” ’
