Your Walls Can Fall
“When the trumpets sounded, the people shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when people gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed.”
I have always loved this story of Joshua and the Children of Israel, and how they destroyed wall around the city of Jericho. This is a perfect example of a man walking in faith, and trusting and believing in God. Joshua was a military man who had been used to war, and doing battle with his enemies. When he was faced with this impenetrable wall that surrounded Jericho, I am sure he knew that it was just too high and too thick, even with his soldiers, to break through and take the city. Joshua was also a man of God, and when he heard God talk to him and give him these instructions, he must have questioned this in his mind, as it probably didn’t make sense to him, but he obeyed God’s commands. We know what happened, as described in the scripture above, that when the trumpets sounded and the people shouted the walls fell down. This is another example of the power of God, as when the mission seems impossible in the eyes of man, the power of God can do the impossible. Just as God parted the sea and let the people of Israel flee from bondage, or just as God directed Noah to build an ark, nothing is impossible with God. My friends, you will find that many times God’s plans often don’t make sense to us, as He knows things that we don’t know. But when God does the impossible, we can only sit back and say, “Only God could have done this.” When we see and hear about people being healed of incurable sicknesses, or escaping miraculous accidents, this is God at work doing the impossible. God is calling you to also walk in faith just like Joshua did, as He can do the impossible in your life.
