Week 11 Day 7
Week 11 Day 7
Expect God to work in unusual and unexpected ways
Wars were fought from dawn till dusk except on the day Joshua needed more time
Some of the enemy were descendants of giantsYet even they could not withstand the children of Israel and the God who fought for them
Don't be afraid; have faithDon't focus on the enemy the size of the problem the overwhelming aspects of your trouble
Instead focus on God and God's enabling strengthGod is able even when we are not.
CONQUERING CANAAN Mighty Joshua - even the sun obeyed him! Joshua 10 & 11
1Now when the king of Jerusalem heard how Joshua had taken Ai and how the inhabitants of Gibeon had made peace with Israel, 2they feared greatly, because Gibeon was a great city and all its men were mighty. 3Therefore the king of Jerusalem sent to the kings of Hebron, Jarmuth, Lachish and Eglon, saying, 4"Come and help me, that we may attack Gibeon, for it has made peace with Joshua and with the children of Israel." 6The men of Gibeon sent to Joshua, saying, "Do not forsake your servants; come up to us quickly, save us and help us, for all the kings of the Amorites who dwell in the mountains have gathered together against us." 7So Joshua ascended and all the people of war with him, and all the mighty men of valor. 8The Lord said, "Do not fear them, for I have delivered them into your hand; not a man of them shall stand before you." 9Joshua came upon them suddenly, having marched all night from Gilgal. 10So the Lord routed them before Israel, and chased them along the road. 11As they fled before Israel, the Lord cast down large hailstones from heaven on them and they died. There were more who died from hailstones than were killed with the sword. 12Then Joshua spoke to the Lord in the day when the Lord delivered up the Amorites. 13So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day. 14There has been no day like that, before it or after it, that the Lord heeded the voice of a man; for the Lord fought for Israel. 16The five kings had hidden themselves in a cave. 18So Joshua said, "Roll large stones against the mouth of the cave, and set men to guard them. 19Do not stay there yourselves, but pursue your enemies, and attack their rear guard." 16Thus Joshua took all this land: the mountain country, all the South, the lowland, and the Jordan plain, 17even as far as the Valley of Lebanon below Mount Hermon. He captured all their kings, and struck them down. 18Joshua made war a long time with all those kings. 19Not a city made peace with Israel, except the Hivites, the inhabitants of Gibeon. All the others they took in battle. 23So Joshua took the whole land, according to all that the Lord had said to Moses; and Joshua gave it as an inheritance to Israel according to their divisions by their tribes. Then the land rested from war. This Bible passage was condensed from the NKJV
