The life of faith is a journey with God that begins the moment we trust Christ. It is about learning to give up control of those things we never really controlled in the first place.
It is our total surrender to the great Father Son and Holy Spirit.
The story of Joshua and the Israelites as they came face to face with the great walls of Jericho reveals a very important lesson for us. Who brought down the walls of Jericho? Was it God? Was it the Israelites? Was it both of them? God told Joshua at the beginning of the story that he has already delivered Jericho to them.
Delivered. Past tense. Good as done. Yet, there was Jericho standing so proudly and confidently when God has already declared it delivered. And if God has already accomplished the work, why did He still command Joshua and Israel to march around the city?
