I love the book of Joshua. Last night, as I was reading chapter two, I made an application to today and the Church. The enemy witnessed God’s miraculous intervention which caused their hearts to melt with fear. Yes! Lord, do it again in our day.
Somehow the folks across the Jordan River witnessed God taking His children through the Red Sea. What was a true obstacle, became His means of defeating the Egyptian army. They also witnessed His utter destruction of the two Amorite kings.
In Joshua 2:9 Rahab told the two spies, “…I know that the Lord has given you this land, that the terror of you has fallen on us, and that all the inhabitants of the land are fainthearted because of you.”
God’s ‘gem’ for strategic warfare was recorded. Verse 10 says, “For we heard how the Lord dried up the Red Sea for you…” Verse 11 says, “As soon as we heard these things, our hearts melted; neither did there remain any more courage in anyone because of You, for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath.”
Early this morning I was rehearsing this chapter. Ephesians 3:10 says that the Lord will use His church to display His multifaceted wisdom before our enemies.
We face our own ‘red sea’ impossibility. We, the Church, are on display. What will the enemy witness of God’s miraculous intervention on behalf of our nation? Will they see His church going through on ‘dry land’ and using it to destroy the work of the enemy against our nation?
Oh Lord, we marvel at You who is All Powerful. There is no One like You, and there is no One Your equal. We are standing on our watch, and looking to see what You will say to do. Help us to discern your manifold wisdom, and yield our hearts to follow You through what appears impossible. Thank You for Your excellent strategy to defeat and destroy those that are opposing You and Your purpose for America. Let their hearts melt with fear.
