Dare To Be Bold & Believe - 03/17/11
I love the story of Joshua. Scripture says in Joshua 10:12-14, He was in the midst of a great battle and he and his men were trying to finish off this army before the sun went down. He knew that this army would rise up and cause them soo many problems if he didn't. Joshua could have easy gotten discouraged and had a defeated attitude but he stepped up and a new boldness surrounded him. He said, "God I know this is totally unusual and completely out of the ordinary but I'm asking you to stop the sun for me so I can complete this task at hand. I need daylight." I can imagine God thinking at first how bold Joshua was to ask for such a thing that could disrupt everything and how extreme of a request that was of Joshua to even make. But I can just about picture God smiling and saying to the angels, "Look at this man. Wow! He believes I can do ANYTHING! Sooooo...here's the deal, if he's bold enough to ask I'm bold enough to do it for him!"
And scripture says that's exactly what happened. The sun stood still until Joshua completely finished off that army. God interrupted the entire universe just because one man was bold enough to ask and believe. It was his faith that was big enough to go beyond ordinary faith.
Are you believing big? Are you dreaming big? Is your faith bold enough? Dare to ask God for big things that line up with His will today for you life and then speak in faith that is will come to pass.
Blessings all around you!
