Sun, stand still

Joshua - 1

Sun, stand still

Joshua 10:12-15 (JDV)

Joshua 10:12 On the day Yahveh gave the Amorites over to the Israelites, Joshua spoke to Yahveh in the presence of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon, and moon, over the Valley of Aijalon.”
Joshua 10:13 And the sun stood still and the moon stopped until the nation took vengeance on its enemies. Isn’t this written in the Book of Jashar? So the sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed its setting almost a full day.
Joshua 10:14 There has been no day like it before or since, when Yahveh listened to a man, because Yahveh fought for Israel.
Joshua 10:15 Then Joshua and all Israel with him returned to the camp at Gilgal.

Sun, stand still

Pastor Steve Furtick says “If you’re not daring to believe God for the impossible, you may be sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian Life” in his book Sun Stand Still. He challenges Christians to dare to ask God for the outrageous, because that is what God wants to give those who follow the pattern of Joshua here.

Lord, give us this generation for your kingdom.
