Joshua led the men into battle against the five kings. The Lord blessed Joshua’s army with a great victory so far, but they still had much more fighting to do.
In the midst of the battle, Joshua ask the Lord for something that would seem so ridiculous to us. He asked the Lord to make the sun stand still.
We would never even think of praying something like that. It would seem useless to ask for something that powerful. We would believe that it could never happen.
Joshua 10:13 says that “the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, until the nation took vengeance on their enemies.”
God allowed the sun and the moon to stand still for Joshua’s army to win the battle. He worked such a powerful miracle that day.
There are so many places in God’s Word that we see great miracles occur. In the New Testament, Jesus preforms amazing miracles as He walked this earth. And in the Old Testament, we can see the Lord work extraordinary miracles.
We can read about the great works that the Lord preformed in the past. We can even believe that He did these amazing things.
But in today’s world it can be hard to believe that the Lord would do the same powerful miracles He did in the past.
Hebrew 13:8 says that the Lord “is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
So the same miracle-working God that is described throughout the pages of the Bible is the same God that we know today. He is still a mighty, miracle-working God.
“He [God] performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.” (Job 5:9 NIV)
You may be going though your own battle right now. Your life may be too hard to deal with sometimes. You may be praying for a powerful miracle to happen.
The Lord can still work miracles. He can still perform powerful works today.
You must believe that He has the power. You must have faith that though Him you can move mountains.
He will not keep you in the midst of your battle forever. Just hold tight to your faith that He will do a powerful thing, because He is still a miracle-working God.
In His amazing love,
