“So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and did not hasten to go down for about a whole day.” Joshua 10:13
The above scripture reflects how God came through in a mighty way, giving victory to Joshua and the Israelites. There is no explanation as to how or why the sun stood still and did not go down that day. God allowed this so that His people could avenge themselves and destroy every last one of their enemies.
Today we know that God is sovereign and He is free to carry out His plan for our lives. He is able to do whatever He will, whenever He will. He is not limited by space or time.
We also know that God does not follow rules.
He creates them.
He does not worry about political correctness, because He does whatever needs to be done for our good and for His eternal purposes.
If we saturate ourselves in the Word and ask the Holy Spirit to open our hearts and minds to what He wants us to learn, we will come to know some of His character. But He will remain a mystery to us because His thoughts are not our thoughts and His ways are not our ways. However, the wonderful news today is that we do not have to understand Him; we just need to follow Him. He’ll do the rest for us. With that attitude, we can always quote the verse of scripture that our Lord Jesus uttered, “Not my will, but Thine be done.” Matt. 26:39
