May The Sun Stand Still For You

Now Adoni-Zedek king of Jerusalem heard that Joshua had taken Ai and totally destroyed it, doing to Ai and its king as he had done to Jericho and its king, and that the people of Gibeon had made a treaty of peace with Israel and had become their allies.  . . . Then the five kings of the Amorites . . . joined forces.  . . . and took up positions against Gibeon and attacked it. The Gibeonites then sent word to Joshua in the camp at Gilgal
. . .  After an all-night march from Gilgal, Joshua took them by surprise.  
. . . On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: "Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and you, moon, over the Valley of Aijalon." So the sun stood still and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies . . .  The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. 
There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the LORD listened to a human being. Surely the LORD was fighting for Israel!  Joshua 10:1-15
Is there anything God will not do to meet the needs of His children? Absolutely not! Joshua and the Israelites needed daylight so they could fight their enemies before darkness set in. With confidence, knowing that their mission was backed by God, Joshua commanded the sun to stand still and not to set and the moon to stay put until they had accomplished their mission! On that day, God listened to the voice of a human being and interrupted the normal cause of nature to accomplish the divine purpose of ridding the Promised Land of the enemies of God's people!

This is not surprising because Joshua was totally committed to God in obedience. God had promised him that as long as he kept the word of God and meditated on it day and night, he would be successful. God assured Joshua of His Presence all through the journey. That assurance and the relationship of obedience meant that Joshua had access to the ears of God. There was nothing God would not do to back up His word to Joshua.

As you live your life in pursuit of God's kingdom agenda, be totally confident that there is nothing God will not do to ensure your success and victory. Like Joshua, resolve to walk faithfully with God, and God will suspend the laws of nature to ensure your victory. If God gave you His most precious possession, Jesus His only begotten Son to die for you, there is nothing He will not do for you.

May God cause the sun and the moon to stand still until your victory is secure. 
Prayer: Lord, I know there is nothing you will not do to ensure my success and well-being. Please help me to walk in such obedience that I can be confident that you will answer even the most impossible prayers I utter to you. Amen.
