Now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them ... Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, to you have I given it. Joshua 1.2, 3.

All who were now to enter Canaan were people of faith. They crossed the Jordan River by laying hold of God’s word. But after they crossed Jordan, did they immediately possess all the land? Satan will never make such a concession to God’s people. The walls of Jericho were tall and the gates of the city were tightly shut. Had we been there in such a situation, we would probably have gone to God and complained, saying: “You said You had given us the land of Canaan. We have crossed the River, but now the walls of Jericho are so tall and the gates of the city are so securely shut. Has not Your word fallen short?” The children of Israel, however, did nothing of the sort. They believed in God’s word and laid hold of His promise. They encircled the city once every day till on the seventh day they encircled it seven times; then they shouted, and in response the walls of Jericho collapsed. And thereafter they conquered one city after another.
