Key: Going through challenges? Do you feel the problem you are going through is too much and is weighing you down? Everything looks confusing, you are getting afraid and it’s looking like you can’t get out of the whole situation.
And God said “I have given Jericho into your hands”…Joshua went to God to ask, God told Joshua to go and God gave him instructions on how to overcome Jericho.
Every problem you face is a Jericho because it is hindering you from moving forward; it’s bringing fear to you and it’s weighing you down.
Be like Joshua, go to God, receive instructions and overcome. Remember Philippians 4vs 6-7 (Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.)
Reflection: Don’t just sit and worry, go to God.
