"There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a man. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!"

How amazing would this day have been. I love to think of God standing with Joshua surveying the wars and deciding that was exactly what it would take to bring glory to His name that day, and taking joy in doing something so outside the human realm of possible. How brave am I in asking God for things outside of our human realm? Let's lift Jordan up today and ask for this!

that was the verse that really hit me too. these words and yours gave me goosebumps. Great is the Lord and mighty to save. The victories in this passage are GREAT. Our God is GREAT. Oh Lord, move in power, trample disease and the thief who comes to steal, kill and destroy. Be exalted oh God!

I love the idea that Jehoshaphat sent Levites and officials to all of his towns teaching them the Book of the Law- would have been exciting to see these men approaching your town, and the resulting peace that came from following God.

I do keep looking for the "but" in this chapter, since chapter 3 says "in his early years"... I admit to reading ahead to see what happened to Jeho-.

no kidding, hey? these stories awaken a desire in me to "finish well". to END triumphantly and not fizzle out and lose my passion. What's with that anyway? How can we taste the goodness of God, experience His blessing and goodness and be dulled to it? Oh Lord, may your hand and spirit be upon us, may our hearts never lose their thirst for you, may our mouths never cease to testify of your goodness. Give us the stamina and drive to finish well with our hearts continuously set on you.

Amen! You reminded me of that verse in Hebrews (6:4).

Not sure what to take from Isaiah 15! Maybe just gratefulness for God's hand of mercy in my life. Got to share with my sons this morning about the miracle of life and how much a little baby in-utero is still so precious to our Father... (media story, not me :)

my internet has been down every morning, and then by the time I get on here in the afternoon I am all twisted out of my contemplative state.

joel 1:3 "Tell your children about these things,
let your children tell their children,
and let your grandchildren tell their children."

I view this as my number 1 commission while my children are here at home, growing with me. To testify about the Lord, and His goodness and His ways, when we rise when we sit, when we lay down, when we walk along the road. Lord, preserve your truth in their heart and anoint them to follow You all the days of their lives.
