“I’m giving you every square inch of the land you set your foot on” (Joshua 1:3; MSG).
God is not a genie in a bottle, and your wish is not His command. His command better be your wish.
When the Israelites circled Jericho, they had no idea how God would give them the city. But they didn’t let what they didn’t know keep them from obeying the command they had been given. So they circled the promise over and over and over again. They circled the promise thirteen times over seven days! Why? Because even though they didn’t know how God would deliver on the promise, they knew that God would come [through] somehow, someway!
