Ron has been filling in for another missionary for the past three Sundays. He had a great message prepared each week, but this last week was the most challenging to me. He preached out of Joshua 6 - the battle of Jericho. Although this is a familiar story, it is nice to be reminded of the great truths it teaches us. Ron painted a picture of what the walls were like around Jericho. In our human eyes the Israelites had an impossible task. But God was with the Israelites. They followed His instructions and He gave the victory.
Why is it that so many times we think our problems are bigger than the walls of Jericho? We serve the same God that caused those walls to fall. I am so thankful for the reminder that God is bigger than our needs or problems. I Corinthians 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
