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 and caused the wall around the city of Jericho to fall. This is a perfect example of a man walking in faith, and trusting and believing in God and obeying His commands. 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 Red Sea and let the people of Israel flee from their bondage at the hands of the Egyptians, or just as God directed Noah to build an ark in the desert and warned him that the earth would be destroyed by rain and rising waters. We can see by these examples that 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. Your walls can fall and you can be delivered as with God all things are possible.
