Day Twenty-nine – Dor – Dwelling
“…the king of Dor in the heights of Dor, one.” Joshua 12:23 NKJV
The definition of Dor is dwelling – Stemming from the word dowr, (dore) a masculine noun meaning generation to generation. It can also mean a period of time, a setting of time, a circle of existence.
Joshua and his generation was not exempt from facing the enemy of the season or circle of time.
“Now it came to pass, a long time after the LORD had given rest to Israel … Joshua was old, advanced in age.” Joshua 23:1 NKJV
“And Joshua called for all Israel, for their elders, for their heads, …” Joshua gathered them all together.” Joshua 23:2
Joshua gathering, those in position in this period of time, begins to remind them of all they had personally seen the LORD do for them and the people. “…for the LORD, your God is He who has fought for you.” Verse 3
Joshua never ceases to inspire me with his leadership and heart for his people and their children. In the height of his generation and period of time, Joshua continues lead and guide. Encouraging them not to trust in their own accomplishments, and successes, but to remember it is God’s faithfulness that brings them victory!
For victory over the enemy who desires to steal, kill, and destroy our future, remember it is God who is faithful to fight for us!
“The enemy shall not outwit him…” Psalm 89:21
Thanks be to God who fights for me and my next generation! The deceptive lies of going out and coming in have been exposed by the Light of the Truth of Jesus Christ!
I AM the Door! John 10:9 NKJV
Now instead of relying on my own strength, I am equipped with the Word of God secured to my heart for victory!
“If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture (rest). John 10:9 NKJV
Resting in the One who destroyed the enemy of Dor when the stone was rolled away, and His Power walked out!
“This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the LORD.” Psalm 102:18 NKJV
May you and your children’s, children’s be blessed for a thousand generations in Jesus’s Might Name! Amen!
