Have Obedient Faith!
by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions
Hebrews 11:30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they had been encircled for seven days.
After spending forty years in the wilderness, the children of Israel crossed into the Promised Land arriving to immediately face what seemed an impregnable fortress and an impossible task. Imagine receiving the instruction to march around the fortified city seven times, then finally be commanded to shout with all your might and sound shofars! It seemed like such a ridiculous warfare strategy...and yet, this time, they followed the instructions, marching around the walled city of Jericho and on the 7th day, after 7 rounds, witnessed the miraculous collapse which opened the way to victory.
Obeying the voice of the Lord in faith was met with His supernatural intervening power. The object lesson?
Do what God says, follow His instructions, putting your faith into action!
Faith that works is true faith, and it reveals the awesome God whom we serve! Respond to God's word obediently, no matter how ridiculous it may seem, and when He is ready your breakthrough will come!
