Miraculous Fight

Today's reading: Joshua 10:1-43

Joshua's hasty and careless decision to make a treaty with the people of Gibeon, now puts the Israelites in the difficult position of being called on to defend Gibeon from a massive attack from the kings of the surrounding areas. The Lord tells Joshua "Do not fear them, for I have given them into your hand. Not a man of them shall stand before you" (vs. 8). Trusting God, Joshua marches all night to engage in battle. As the Israelites arrive at Gibeon, God intervenes, causing panic among the opposing warriors and hurling down large hailstones from heaven. Needing more time to defeat the opposing armies, Joshua prays to God in front of all of Israel, "Let the sun stand still over Gibeon, and the moon over the valley of Aijalon" (vs. 12). The Lord answers Joshua's prayer, with the sun staying in the sky for an entire day "for the Lord fought for Israel" (vs. 14, ESV).

What's one example of how being careless with a decision (not seeking God but relying on your own feelings and understanding) ended up being a detriment to you at a later date? What does the treaty with the Gibeonites reveal about how seemingly small compromises can have BIG consequences? When has God fought for you (identify one example)? Do you pray for miraculous things? Why or why not? Is there an area in which you need to pray for a miracle today? Tami
