[The Glory Unveiled ]
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. ( Joshua 10:13)
Five Kings of the Amorites came up against Gibeon and overpowered them in battle. And so the Gibeonites sent word to Joshua and his men to help them fight the Amorites. It was during this battle that Joshua prayed and the sun stood still like frozen water and the moon stood motionless like a statue. It may be quite difficult to appreciate this great miracle in our day because Science has convinced us that the sun is already stationary. But even if that were true, then it means for the sun not to “move” in our scientific interpretation, we would understand that the earth did not revolve around the sun nor spin (rotate) on its axis for that number of hours [then—instead]. Making it rather a beautiful miracle. The reason for considering this scripture is to appreciate what length God would go to protect His name and glory. He did not want to disappoint His people so He had to come through for them. If God would make the sun stop for someone then He could and would make every scorching situation cease in your life. Anything that steals our joy and robs us of the peace of God is hereby stopped in Jesus’ name. God would do whatever He would do to display His glory and kindness to the world through us. Does your situation seem insurmountable? Call upon the God who surmounts the insurmountable, He who stops the lion’s mouth, calms the storms and speaks to fishes. He is the same God today.
Prayer_Bead: God of wonders and exceeding miracles, thank you for your sovereignty and power. Lord, do in my life what would demonstrate your glory and power to the world today.
