Isn’t it awesome how God goes to work in a situation before we even know there is a situation! In today’s reading Joshua leads an army into a battle for the first time and prevails! But immediately following the battle, The Lord says to Moses to make sure Joshua knows that he didn’t win the battle but that the Lord won the battle! Years later, That same Joshua was able to march around Jericho and watch the God of his victories win the battle without a sword being drawn!
We all want the Jericho moments, but the Jericho moments come when we have been trusting God in the battles that came before. What is your situation today? Will you trust that God was at work before your situation was even a situation, just as God was working in the battle of Jericho 42 years before it took place?
