“By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.” (Heb. 11:30)
We’ve been looking at God’s strategy for Israel to take possession of Jericho (Josh. 6:1-9). Notice that the people had to be willing to do something for a week that probably didn’t make much sense (march around the city quietly once a day for six days, and seven times on the seventh day).
I assume this was quite difficult for the extroverts – no talking or making any noise! The people of God had to be willing to yield their personal logic, reasoning and schedule to God’s plan and schedule. What, no day off? What, no observance of the weekly Sabbath Day? What, shout while the walls are still standing?
If you wait until the walls come down BEFORE you shout, you may never shout, because the walls may never come down UNTIL you shout! If you want the walls to come down, shout as if they were already down, and they will come down!
Will you submit your logic to the Word of the Lord?
