In Joshua 10 the sun stood still (verse 13).

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord You caused the sun to stand still.

Something to think about

Joshua asked the Lord to cause the sun to stand still, which gave the Israelites more time to be victorious over their enemy.

Something to experience

God may not cause the sun to stand still for us.  But when we obey God He will provide us with enough time to succeed in our battles against every enemy we face.  God alone delivers us from our enemies.  And we should always give Him credit for doing so.

Prayer

Lord I pray we will choose to rejoice in You.  I pray we will be joyful in Your Son, Christ Jesus, our Savior (Habakkuk 3:18).  I pray we will put on the armor You’ve given us so that we will be able to successfully resist and stand our ground in the conflicts that come into our life.  I pray we will do everything that the crisis demands.  I pray we will stand firm and be victorious in every battle we face (Ephesians 6:13).  For everyone born of You is victorious and will overcome the world.  I pray we will continually and persistently have faith in Your Son, Christ Jesus.  Thank You for giving us victory over the world through our belief and our recognition of the fact that Christ Jesus is Your Son (I John 5:4-5). In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.

Joshua 11: According to my Bible notes Hazor symbolized the wicked culture that Israel came to destroy.

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord, Joshua left nothing undone of all that You commanded Moses.

Something to think about

Obedience is one area of our life that we believers can control.

Something to experience

Any new challenge we face can be helped by us looking into God’s Word and obeying what we find.

Prayer

Lord I pray Your eyes will be upon us who worship You with awe-inspired reverence and obedience.  I pray we will hope confidently in Your compassion and lovingkindness (Psalm 33:18).  I pray we will destroy sophisticated arguments and every exalted and proud thing that sets itself up against the true knowledge of You.  I pray we will indeed take every thought and purpose captive to the obedience of Your Son, Christ Jesus (II Corinthians 10:5). I pray we will be diligent and make every effort to be found by You spotless and blameless.  I pray we will experience peace, inward calm, spiritual well-being and confidence. I pray we will be found living a life of obedience to You (II Peter 3:14).  In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.

Joshua 12 contains a list of defeated kings.

Response

Oh! Wow! Lord You protected the Israelites and You can protect us.

Something to think about

According to the Bible notes as along as the Israelites trusted and obeyed God one evil nation after another fell in defeat.

Something to experience

We too have evil that comes into our life to steal, kill and destroy us (John 10:10).  We too can defeat the evil that we face as long as we trust and obey God. 

Prayer

Lord I pray we will worship, obey, serve and trust You for then we will prolong our life (Proverbs 10:27).  I pray those who seek to harm us will be turned back in defeat.  I pray those who plot evil against us will be humiliated (Psalm 35:4). I pray we will walk in Your light by trusting and being confident in Your name and relying on You (Isaiah 50:10).  In Christ Jesus’ name I pray.  AMEN.
