As God goes before us victoriously, our part is to follow Him and His Word completely.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
“With my whole heart I seek you; let me not wander from your commandments! I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” Psalms 119:10-11
Read - Joshua 6-7
You will never hear a trumpet blast the same again! God brought down walls to the sound of it in Jericho and God's victories are still to trumpet sound. Jericho had been a mighty and fortified city and Israel walked in with no concern. What can this same God do in your life?
1 in 600,000 fighting men choose to disobey Holy God. Surely it will go un-noticed.? When God gives orders they are for His glory and our good and to be followed perfectly. Men died because of this rash act and sin still carries deadly consequences today.
Even if I don't understand why, help me to walk in Your Way wholeheartedly.
More on the Sin of Achan:
As the enemy so often attempts, he brings about a deception right after God has brought a great victory. The sin of Achan should serve as a reminder of Satan's deceiving, dividing and destroying ways!
