Joshua son of Nun secretly sent out from Shittim two men as spies: “Go. Look over the land. Check out Jericho.” They left and arrived at the house of a harlot named Rahab and stayed there. Joshua 2:1 MSG
Every project has some level of uncertainty. You look at it; examine it; think about it and the result is still the same. You are afraid. The “What If” family has come and taken up residence in your mind. You push forward even though the “What If” family won’t leave you alone. I’m quite sure that the men who went on the mission to check out Jericho, felt the same way. However, they knew from their past experiences that God is a provider. They had their history to quiet the “What If” family in their minds.
Now Jericho was a city where the residents lived in fear of Joshua and the people he led. Their reputation had preceded them. The king was afraid because of what they heard about Joshua’s God. The people of Jericho didn’t know God. The “What If” family invited all their relatives to join the party in their minds. The party went on for so long that they felt hopelessly afraid.
The spies, on the other hand, went on their mission and they found provision at the house of a harlot. The harlot woman was not their choice for social interaction. However, that was the person God used to provide safety. She protected them and gave them all the information they needed. Their faith in God made the difference. Their mission was a success.
Thought for Today: With God, your mission is possible
Have a blessed day and walk in faith and victory.
