Week 2: Adventure in Faith – Move Into Your Promised Land

Scripture: Joshua 6:6-7

So Joshua son of Nun summoned the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of the covenant, and have seven priests carry seven trumpets of rams’ horns in front of the ark of the Lord.” To the people he said, “Go forward and march around the city; have the armed men pass on before the ark of the Lord.”

The Covenant

I am ready for my Adventure in Faith.

I see the divine opportunity designed just for me and I wholeheartedly say YES GOD!

I am strong – I will withstand the temptation to dream small or stay the same.

I am courageous – I travel as the power, love and life of God. I have no reason to fear.


I think thoughts, feel feelings and speak words that reflect my promise being fulfilled.

I live in a state of perpetual gratitude.

I move on UP!

I Move Into My Promised Land Now!

Sermon Notes

Joshua gave instructions to:


The priests represent your habitual, patterned thinking. They are the laws you live by in your mind.


The people represent the congregation of your thinking and feelings about your promised land.

Joshua gave instructions to The Priests:

“Take up the ark of the covenant”

Listen to your intuition.

Know that you are a spiritual being and that your spiritual nature is your real self.

“have seven priests carry seven trumpets of ram’s horns in front of the ark of the Lord”

Seven Priests represent faith in the power of Spirit.

Your thoughts (thinking and feeling) and words must be in harmony with the Truth.

Use the affirmations and denials

Tools for consciousness transformation = tools for changing your old thought patterns


Denials are releasing the lies that are on repeat in your mind.

Denials clear away belief in the lies you tell yourself about yourself and your promised land.

Deny gently.


Affirmations are statements about what’s spiritual true about you.

Affirm the truth about yourself that does not change.

Speak affirmations boldly!

Instructions to the People:

“Go forward and march around the city; have the armed men pass on before the ark of the Lord.”

Go forward being led by the Spirit.

Anything the intellect presents must reflect your divine nature.

“Go forward and march around the city; have the armed men pass on before the ark of the Lord.”

The armed men is the spoken word locked and loaded with the truth. The “I can” and “I will” mindset.


What walls need to fall in order for you to possess your promised land?
