God will provide for you if you need deliverance. Your healing will come if you need it. You might be facing the Jericho wall right now. Some of your adversaries may have promised to never let you go. If you trust in God’s provision, even though your life is filled with suffering, resentment, confusion, need, sickness, and diseases, all of your adversaries will submit. The Amorites thought that Canaan was their ancient homeland. They swore to stay put in the land of opportunity forever. They were resolved to thwart any attempt by Israel to go into the land that was promised to them. The claims of the children of Israel were supported by God’s assurances and provisions. God soothed the children of Israel in the face of tremendous hostility and reiterated his covenant promise and provision of the land. Believe God if He has made you any promises because He will keep all of them.
And the LORD gave unto Israel all the land which he sware to give unto their fathers; and they possessed it, and dwelt therein. And the LORD gave them rest round about, according to all that he sware unto their fathers: and there stood not a man of all their enemies before them; the LORD delivered all their enemies into their hand. There failed not ought of any good thing which the LORD had spoken unto the house of Israel; all came to pass”(Joshua 21:43-45).

The adversary cannot defeat God’s word—not even death. His claims are unfailingly true. He will support you and deliver you up till your life is freed from all adversaries if you continue to be faithful to his promises.
God keeps all of his promises, and he is trustworthy.
“Then the children of Judah came unto Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning me and thee in Kadeshbarnea. Forty years old was I when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it was in mine heart. Nevertheless my brethren that went up with me made the heart of the people melt: but I wholly followed the LORD my God. And Moses sware on that day, saying, Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall be thine inheritance, and thy children’s for ever, because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God. And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old. As yet I am as strong this day as I was in the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then, even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out, and to come in. Now therefore give me this mountain, whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou heardest in that day how the Anakims were there, and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive them out, as the LORD said. And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance”(Joshua 14:6-13).
Caleb was preserved alive to receive the fulfillment of God’s promises to him after forty years. He arrived in the country that God had promised him. Until he requested it, he did not inherit or possess his possessions. If you don’t request it, you will not receive what God has provided for you. David was anointed by God, but Saul wouldn’t let him govern. He must pray when in peril since God has promised to deliver him from all of his foes. His adversaries frequently oppressed him, engaged in daily combat with him, and tried to engulf him. They misrepresented his words and formed a plan to harm him, but he put his trust in God.

“What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me… Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?”(Psalms 56:3-4, 8).
“In God will I praise His Word: in the LORD will I praise his Word. In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me”(Psalms 56:10-11).
The wise pray when there is a promise, but the foolish wait to pray until the lord of the house has gotten up and closed the door before they begin pounding.
“Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able. When once the master of the house is risen up, and hath shut to the door, and ye begin to stand without, and to knock at the door, saying, Lord, Lord, open unto us; and he shall answer and say unto you, I know you not whence ye are: Then shall ye begin to say, We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out”(Luke 13:24-28).
We are all engaged in combat, and whether we win or lose depends on our attitude during the conflict. In difficult circumstances, believers ought to pray for God’s mercy. After receiving salvation, we must always put prayer first, even when the enemy is on the verge of bowing. Your requests for God to do the impossible must be made with trust. Believers should have faith in God. Our prayers to God cannot go unanswered.
