Scripture Reading: Joshua 6: 1-20


“Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in.” (Joshua 6: 1)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of the fact that Jericho was shut up because of the children of Israel. Jericho had walls and gates, and ordinarily, people could move in or out; but because of the children of Israel, a new policy was enacted to ensure that no one went in or came out. Movement into the city could have been easy before, but when it was time for the children of Israel to move in, what was easy became hard.

Friend, are you at that point where things seem to be becoming difficult because of you? Are you at that point where gates are being shut just to stop you from making progress? Are you at that point where things that worked for others have suddenly stopped working because it has got to your own point? Are you at that point where situations that need to work in your favour are working against you already?

Today, I pass a decree: any situation that came to your turn and became bad, I say no! Every situation that has turned against you, I command it to become good for you; every unfavourable policy that is slowing you down, I command it to be reversed for your good; any door that has been shut to stop you from moving, I command it to be opened; your ‘Jericho’ will not be shut; your new territory shall not oppose you.

The children of Israel had journeys to complete beyond Jericho. They still had Canaan to possess; they had other cities to possess; they had other promises of God that needed to be fulfilled, and there was no need for a needless hindrance that will slow them down. Every plot of the enemy to delay or hinder you from possessing your new territories, I scatter it by the fire of God.

I command whatever has become difficult to become easy; it will not come to your turn and things will go bad; I cast out every demonic gate keeper that wants to keep your ‘Jericho’ shut. No more blockade.


There shall be no more blockade, in Jesus’ name!
