FIRE SCRIPTURE: Joshua 9:21-27

21 And the rulers said to them, “Let them live, but let them be woodcutters and water carriers for all the congregation, as the rulers had promised them.”

22 Then Joshua called for them, and he spoke to them, saying, “Why have you deceived us, saying, ‘We are very far from you,’ when you dwell near us? 23 Now therefore, you are cursed, and none of you shall be freed from being slaves—woodcutters and water carriers for the house of my God.”

24 So they answered Joshua and said, “Because your servants were clearly told that the Lord your God commanded His servant Moses to give you all the land, and to destroy all the inhabitants of the land from before you; therefore we were very much afraid for our lives because of you, and have done this thing. 25 And now, here we are, in your hands; do with us as it seems good and right to do to us.”

26 So he did to them, and delivered them out of the hand of the children of Israel, so that they did not kill them. 27 And that day Joshua made them woodcutters and water carriers for the congregation and for the altar of the Lord, in the place which He would choose, even to this day.

MEMORY VERSE: Joshua 9:23: “Now, therefore, ye are cursed, and there shall none of you be freed from being bondmen, and hewers of wood and drawers of water for the house of my God.”

MESSAGE: MFM Daily Devotional | 14th July 2022 — I Reject Evil Embargo (II)

Yesterday, we learnt about how Jacob used a curse to place an embargo on Reuben, his firstborn. Our Fire Scripture today is looking at another group of people that were placed under an embargo because of their deceit. Joshua and the leaders of Israel failed to pray for God’s direction in dealing with the Gibeonites.

As a result, they presumptuously entered into an agreement (a treaty) with them, which they could not break. This misguided and unwise decision brought the ungodly Canaanites into Israel’s communities – this type of action is forbidden in Deuteronomy 7:1-3.

In all decisions of life, we should look to God for His wisdom and guidance so that we can avoid unnecessary sorrow and tragedies. In Joshua 9:21, the Bible reads, “The princes said unto them, Let them live; but let them be hewers of wood and drawers of water unto all the congregation; as the princes had promised them.”

Dear reader, if you go through the Bible carefully, this embargo placed on the Gibeonites relegated them and they were the ones doing all the menial jobs for the Israel nation. They were slaves and the downtrodden of the land. Embargo is like a siege that does not allow good things to come and does not allow evil things to go. The evil and negative things will remain.

Embargo is like a ban or impediment to success and prosperity. It ensures that there is no promotion or uplifting. There was an embargo placed on Jabez; his was that of sorrow and poverty, until he called on the God of Israel before he was delivered and got his coast enlarged (1 Chronicles 4:9-10).

MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE
People do not lack strength but the will to reject what is not palatable.

PROPHETIC WORD
I refuse to be cursed in my place of blessings, in the name of Jesus.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jonah 1-4; Romans 2:1-16Psalm 85:1-7
