faith that sees beyond

Joshua 2:22-24 (JDV)

Joshua 2:22 So the two men went into the hill country and stayed there three days until the pursuers had come back. They searched all along the way, but did not find them.
Joshua 2:23 Then the men came back, came down from the hill country, and crossed the Jordan. They went to Joshua son of Nun and reported everything that had happened to them.
Joshua 2:24 They told Joshua, “Yahveh has handed over the entire land to us. Everyone who lives in the land is also panicking because of us.”

faith that sees beyond

It took faith for those two men to hide from their pursuers for three days, and then come back to Joshua and tell him that Yahveh had handed over the land. Really, guys! You just spent several days hiding, and now you report “We’ve got this!” ?

That was not what they said. They said “Yahveh has handed over the entire land to us. Everyone who lives in the land is also panicking because of us.”

Yes, they had been pursued, and they were risking their lives to scout out the land. But they looked beyond that circumstance and reported the truth that their enemies were panicking because God was at work.

Lord, give us the faith to see beyond unpleasant circumstances.
