God’s Way

Our Bible verses today tell us about the battle of Jericho. This is one of my favorite Bible stories. Why? Because this story shows us that the Israelites obeyed God.
Think about what God asked the Israelites to do: 1) March around Jericho and blow trumpets once a day for six days, and 2) On the seventh day, march around Jericho seven times, blow trumpets and shout loudly. That’s all the Israelites had to do. Then God made the city walls fall down.
I wonder if the Israelites thought that God had a strange plan to conquer Jericho. Sometimes God asks me to do something that seems strange to me. I begin to question God’s way. But I need to remember Isaiah 55:8. “The Lord says, ‘My thoughts are not like yours. Your ways are not like mine.'”
That verse helps me remember that God’s way is always the best way for me. When I question God’s plan for my life, I need to be like the Israelites and obey Him.
