"Have seven priests carry trumpets of rams' horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city seven times, with the priests blowing trumpets." Joshua 6:4
It really stuck out to me how many times the number seven was referenced in just this one verse. In the Bible, God often uses the number seven as a number to represent completion. For example, God completed all of creation in a total of seven days. In this story in Joshua, completion is very much emphasized.
For years and years and years, God was leading His people to the Promised Land, a land "flowing with milk and honey". This land was highly talked about and referenced often. With the help of God, Joshua lead everyone across the river, to enter into the Promised Land. God's promise had finally been completed!
Although the Israelites doubted God so many times along the way, God stayed true to what He said. God always keeps his promises, he did in Bible times, and he does in 2017 as well.
