Joshua 5.1

"So it was, when all the kings of the Amorites who were on the west side of the Jordan, and all the kings of the Canaanites who were by the sea, heard that the Lord had dried up the waters of the Jordan from before the children of Israel until we* had crossed over, that their heart melted; and there was no spirit in them any longer because of the children of Israel."

When all the kings heard about the Lord's great works their hearts failed them. They trembled in fear and had no hope. They were undone when the children of Israel crossed over.

When Jesus rent the veil and triumphed over death, all of Satan's kingdom trembled in fear and lost all hope. Just like the enemies of the children of Israel, our enemy's heart melted. Jesus crossed over safely and the enemy was undone.

Salvation had come to earth and Satan knew the battle was on. Sons of God would be in the land, marching forward. Hallelujah! He trembles! Our God has made a way for us to cross over and Satan trembles!

Let's remember today what He has done and how our enemy responds. And let's allow our hearts to be filled with joy and strength.

"And let's allow our hearts to be filled with joy and strength."

Yes! We have control over what goes into our hearts, if we only decide to exercise it. And when our hearts are filled with joy and strength, then it has to come out. Faith building 101.
