Sunday Verses

Happy Sunday! As a kid I loved singing about Joshua and the walls of Jericho crumbling down. As an adult I see there are so many lessons in this story of the Israelites. There is the lesson showing us that God's ways are not our ways,and we see the evidence of His power. We see that God keeps his promises and see the courage of his people. And, we see that faith works. The Israelites were facing the enemy, they were up against a wall, and God wanted them to march around it and toot their horns. God's children listened. They believed. They had faith. Their faith required them to obey God, to take action, and to do what He wanted, as crazy as it sounded. Our faith needs to follow this same pattern. We need to listen, obey, and take action on what God is calling us to do. And when we do, when we hold on to and act on our faith, the walls and obstacles in our lives will crumble.

  2. I love this story too, and thank you for sharing!! I was just watching Patterns of Evidence: the Exodus on Netflix about Jericho's walls - amazing and faith-building, too :)
