“…The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day. There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a man. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel!” Joshua 10:13, 14

What an awesome story of how Israel avenged itself on its enemies. Joshua prayed a prayer that the sun would stand still and it did.  Also, the moon stopped. Never in history had this been done and has not been done since. God honored the prayer of Joshua. That is so encouraging to me because the requests that I ask of God are not as intense as the prayer that Joshua prayed. I don’t need the earth to  be still or the sun and moon to stop moving. They need not “freeze” on my account. What I do need are some situations to be taken care of in my life. There are a few things that need to “freeze” in my life so that God can do what he does best. I yet trust him to do it and to take care of it.  If God can bring the sun to a complete halt, he can certainly handle all of the concerns of my life and he will handle your life too.
