“Joshua,” the Lord said, “don’t be afraid of the Amorites. They will run away when you attack, and I will help you defeat them.” Joshua 10:8 Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Alam mo ba na takot na takot si Joshua noong panahong ito dahil ang lahat ng mga kaharian ay nagsanib ang pwersa against Israel? But in verse 12 it was said that Joshua spoke the word of faith to command the sun to stand still and for the moon to stop upang magwagi sila laban sa kanilang mga kalaban. At sinabi na hindi pa ito naganap noon at hindi na naganap pang muli. Sinabi na ang Panginoon ay nakinig sa boses ng tao sapagkat ang Diyos ang nakikipaglaban para sa Kanyang bayan.
How powerful for that day for a man to defy nature and ask the Master Planner, the Creator of the Universe to stop the solar system from its course. Truly, we will see things happening if only we believe in the power of the Almighty God. Jesus said that the mountain will move if we put our confidence in God.
What is that mountain in your life today that seems unmovable? The God that listened to Joshua to facilitate the stoppage of the sun and the moon is still the same God that can perform things beyond your expectation. Believe and you shall receive, in Jesus’ name. God confirmed to Joshua and to you now: “…I will help you defeat [your enemies].”
call those things which are not as though they were (Romans 4:17)
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. May you experience the nearness of Jesus every moment. May He abide to empower and inspire you to live out His purposes in your life.
