Wednesday, March 22nd: Joshua 10 - 12, Luke 1:39-56 ~ Nathan

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is: Joshua 10-12, Luke 1:39-56

It's interesting all the miracles that God did for the Israelites, as He helped them establish a homeland.

Joshua 10:11
As they fled before Israel on the road down from Beth Horon to Azekah, the Lord hurled large hailstones down on them, and more of them died from the hail than were killed by the swords of the Israelites.

Unreal storm of stones that must have been, there would have been no escape.

Joshua 10:13
So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.

Time stopped! The Israelites needed some extra time and God helped them out. This miracle that God did stands out to me, because of how extraordinary it would have been.

Joshua 11:20
For it was the Lord himself who hardened their hearts to wage war against Israel, so that he might destroy them totally, exterminating them without mercy, as the Lord had commanded Moses.

God hardened the peoples hearts, so they wouldn't consider trying to make peace with the Israelites, and therefore would fight and lose to the Israelites.

These are just a small portion of the miracles that God did for the Israelites, and they show His awesome power. I hope they strengthen my faith and yours, in our all powerful Saviour!

Amazing miracles indeed!

I love, in our NT passage, how John leaps in his mother's womb when his spirit recognizes Jesus in Mary's womb. Beautiful display of life for the unborn.
