Release the Fragrance!

Strong and Courageous –
31 Days of Victory Through Joshua’s Battles

Day One – Jericho – A Fragrant Place

“…the king of Jericho, one;” Joshua 12:9 NKJV

The meaning of Jericho is a Fragrant Place

What can I learn from Joshua and the fragrance of Jericho?

“Now Jericho was securely shut up…” Joshua 6:1 NKJV

The day is set before me; completely new, unseen, and unknown.

“And the LORD said to Joshua: “See!” I have given Jericho into your hand…” Joshua 6:2 NKJV

I can choose to go my own way or like Joshua, I can believe the LORD has already given me the day.

“You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go around the city one. This you shall do six days.” Joshua 6:3 NKJV

Why would Joshua be instructed to march around the city six times before his victory if the LORD had already promised the city was his?

I can’t help but believe the time spent circling the promises of God, allowing His truths to settle into our hearts is the victory and fragrance over the shut-up Jericho places in our lives.

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.” 2 Corinthians 2:14

May His sweet fragrance infuse you in strength and courage as you take new land set before you today. Always remembering our loving Father never leaves nor forsakes us in Jesus Mighty Name! Amen.
