Joshua 10:6-14

“Do not be afraid of them,” the Lord said to Joshua, “for I have given you victory over them. Not a single one of them will be able to stand up to you.” (Joshua 10:8 NIV)

The people of Gideon were in trouble and needed assistance. They were being attacked and defeat was eminent. God knew the magnitude of the situation and told me not to be afraid and that we would win. I believed what God said even though it sounded impossible.

My army and I traveled all night and surprised the enemy with an attack. The Lord brought a hailstorm just at the right time and more died. More men died due to the violent weather than the fierce sword.

It may seem like a bizarre or brave request, but I asked God to stop the moon and keep the sun still until Israel defeated its enemies. God graciously made the sun stand still. It did not set in the sky and the moon did not move until we were victorious. Never had this happened, it was the first and only time such a natural phenomenon occurred. Life was frozen in time. What a powerful God! He defended and protected His people.

Lord, Everything in the entire world is Yours. How I marvel at Your power and care. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

What things do you marvel at that God can do and humans can’t?
