Joshua 6:20 -- On Walls and Faith

"So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city."
Joshua 6:20

The things that God asks us to do often seem strange to us... sometimes even pointless or crazy.  And yet, as with the walls of Jericho, his plans work.

Today, let's not dismiss what God asks us to do because of our personal doubts.  Let's have faith and hope and trust that he knows what he is doing, and that if we stick with it over the long term, it will work.

Let's remember that what seem like insurmountable obstacles to us are, to God, no stronger than the walls of Jericho, and they too can be overcome by his power, and our way cleared straight before us.  Let us move forward along that path to God, trusting in him and his power to save.
