Faith Hall of Fame (5)

Bible Reading: Joshua 6:1-27
Monday 29 May 2017

Hebrews 11:30 says, “And the walls of Jericho fell because of the faith of God’s people. They marched around the walls for seven days, and then the walls fell.”

Our Bible Reading tells us that the man who led the Israelites around Jericho was Joshua. He, too, was a great man of faith. Many years before, Joshua had faith that God could bring the Israelites into a new land (Deuteronomy, chapter 1).

Now Joshua led the Israelites in conquering the city of Jericho. The Israelites did not use weapons or dynamite to destroy the wall around Jericho. All they did was march around Jericho, and God caused the walls to fall down.

Sometimes I am scared to do something for God. I do not understand how my own strength can help me do what God wants.

I need to realise that I should depend on God’s strength to help me. I need to have faith that He can do things that seem impossible to me. —JK

Deuteronomy 1:30 “The Lord your God is in front, leading you. He will fight for you just as he did in Egypt.”

PRAYER: Dear God, every day I need to depend on Your strength to help me live for You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.

I am deaf with C.I. - basic BSL, want to learn more. Go to Bridgwater and Weston Super Mare signing church. Have met Gill several times. I think this is a wonderful!! My kind friend Astrid sent me this from Bristol - she has cycled round the world in 2 years - a magical feat! I found life difficult when becoming deaf and decided to make it more `visible` by making BSL jewellery. I have sold some and donate to BSL bible translation, so it is lovely to have this and I will tell my friends about it. JN
