Sun stand still
Joshua 10:8 – The Lord said to Joshua, “Do not be afraid of them; I have given them into your hand. Not one of them will be able to withstand you.”
Joshua 10:12-14 – On the day the Lord gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the Lord in the presence of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the valley of Aijalon.”
So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!
I love how Joshua took God’s promise and lived it through. He believed it so much so that He had the courage to tell the sun to stand still. If I’m being totally honest, I doubt talking to the sun would have crossed my mind at all…
But Joshua was bold and filled with faith, fully trusting that God was fighting for them.
What are you believing for in your life?
Is it to have a family? To have your body fully healed? That dream job you’ve been working hard for? The grades you need to get into university? Your marriage to be restored? A broken friendship that you’ve been missing? Your other-half to be saved?
God wants the best for your life. His will for you is bigger and better than you can ever imagine. So surely, He’s fighting for you just as much as He fought for Israel!
You need to believe in His promise for your life. You need to believe that He has a hope and a plan for your future. You need to believe that He died in order to set you free. You need to believe that He’s going to heal the broken and find the lost. You need to believe that He’s going to have His will in your situation.
Believe it enough to have audacious, courageous and unbreakable faith. Declare it over your life right now.
