Praying for Walls to come Down!
I have to be honest. One of my favorite stories in the bible is the story of Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Joshua is now the new leader of the Hebrew nation and he is not to excited about the job. But he has an amazing encounter with God and he is given the understanding that God is with him where ever he goes. Joshua 1:9. This is one of my favorite verses and has encouraged me in how I sign my letters, “Be Bold.” Which because people are funny like to think that it says, “Be Bald.” But I love it when the people of Isreal are told to walk around the town of Jericho sing and shout until the walls come down.
Joshua 6:3–5 (NLT)
3 You and your fighting men should march around the town once a day for six days. 4 Seven priests will walk ahead of the Ark, each carrying a ram’s horn. On the seventh day you are to march around the town seven times, with the priests blowing the horns. 5 When you hear the priests give one long blast on the rams’ horns, have all the people shout as loud as they can. Then the walls of the town will collapse, and the people can charge straight into the town.”
