When evil gangs up on you just remember that you may need some extra time to see God’s victory.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
1 John 5:14 - This is the confidence we have in approaching God, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
Read - Joshua 10-12
Chapter 10 shows an amazing miracle that God allowed for the purpose of His people. God had told the people to defeat their enemies and now God is extending the time in a day to allow for them to do it. When God calls you to something you can expect Him to provide so you can accomplish it.
Chapter 11 details Joshua’s war efforts on several areas but take special note of the people called the Anakim who were known as giants. Why is this important? Go back to Numbers 13 and see how it was these big folks who scared the majority of Israel into not being obedient to God.
Chapter 12 lists a comprehensive ‘victory chart’ that could be used to celebrate God’s victory. Do you have a victory map in your life?
Lord, help me to be obedient with the time that I have and give me more when needed!
How do we explain the sun standing still? How about take it at ‘face value’:
How bold is your faith? Joshua knew God well enough to know that His plan was sure. He knew God’s love for this people so that he trusted His plan even against insurmountable odds. He was willing to pray a bold prayer so that He could serve God faithfully. Did God provide? Yes, yes He did.
