Lessons Learned–Joshua 10

There are important lessons in Joshua 10. Joshua and the people fought and the Lord fought. More of the enemy fell from the hailstones then from the sword. It’s encouraging to know we have a powerful partner fighting in concert with us! Joshua prayed and the earth stood still. The Lord granted him a time extension on that day. We’re never out of time! We many times consider ourselves overwhelmed, but are not five converging armies overwhelming? The Lord “mopped up” even this significant force. We need to take a little time to “stand on the neck” (i.e. to appreciate the Lord’s help and dominance over our problems) of whatever has confronted us and was dispatched by the mighty hand of God, only to be motivated to be even more “strong and courageous!”
