Revelations from Joshua

Sometimes the word of God comes when you least expect it.  This morning’s UCB readings from Joshua 5-8:29 gave me much food for thought.  I came away with three revelations.

  1. To be effective, we all have to be on the same page.  Grumbling, in-fighting, tiny criticisms, petty jealousies – they all come from the powers of this world not the Kingdom of Heaven.  We can’t go to the promised land until we are on the same page.
  2. God will reveal methods, strategies and tactics that make no sense to the powers of this world.  If God speaks, listen and act.  The result will be beyond anything imagined by our human minds.
  3. Do not let down your guard.  No matter what crisis is taking place, maintain good practice to ensure the gates are guarded.
