Joshua 10:13b-14: The sun stopped in midheaven, and did not hurry to set for about a whole day. 14 There has been no day like it before or since, when the LORD heeded a human voice; for the LORD fought for Israel.
This past Sunday, we were reminded that Jesus is Lord of creation. Even the winds and the waves obey him. The Old Testament lesson for this week Wednesday is from the 10th chapter of the book of Joshua, in which God causes the sun to stand still. If we needed any reminder that God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – is Lord over creation, this is it: God causes the entire solar system to be altered in order for his people to have extra daylight to finish the battle he’s bringing them through.
What battle are you fighting this week? God, in his infinite power, fights for you. He will move heaven and earth to see you through. But remember that the battle belongs to the Lord. He fights for his people! God’s ultimate victory for us is in Jesus’ death and resurrection; in this event we have forgiveness, eternal life, and peace. Most importantly, we have Jesus, in us and with us, through even the most difficult battles. Remember, the Son – Jesus Christ – stands with you this week!
God's richest blessings,
