Do You Believe Him?

I have delivered Jericho into your hands.
                              —Joshua 6:2

God didn’t say I will deliver, but I have delivered.

Joshua’s troops had to be skeptical. Jericho was a walled city, and they were on the outside. Conquest appeared dubious.

God’s plan seemed militarily flawed: March around the city once a day for six days; seven times on the seventh day; and when Joshua says shout, shout!

So, they marched—and when Joshua said “Shout!” they shouted.

The wall collapsed, and Jericho was theirs.

When God says it, it’s as good as done.

I do not ask that He must prove His Word is true to me
And that before I can believe He first must let me see.
It is enough for me to know it’s true because He says it’s so.
On His unchanging Word I’ll stand and trust till I can understand.
—E.M. Winter

If we must have proof before we
believe him, we don’t believe him.
