Joshua 6:2-5 (NIV)
2 Then the LORD said to Joshua, "See, I have delivered Jericho into your hands,
along with its king and its fighting men. 3 March around the city once with all
the armed men. Do this for six days. 4 Have seven priests carry trumpets of
rams' horns in front of the ark. On the seventh day, march around the city
seven times, with the priests blowing the trumpets. 5 When you hear them sound
a long blast on the trumpets, have all the people give a loud shout; then the
wall of the city will collapse and the people will go up, every man straight

The people of Jericho had been fierce fighters, but God had allowed the
Iraelites to push them back into the fortified city walls. Now pent up inside
the city God gave Joshua a plan. It was a plan that would not sound sane to any
general ready to fight a war. Yet God was giving His word to Joshua to carry
out. It was the plan God expected Joshua to fulfill if Joshua planned to
defeat the city.

We go through life wondering about God's will and direction. We often question
what it is we are suppose to do and how we are suppose to proceed. Yet God has
already given us a plan to follow. He has given us His word, has taught us how
to live, has shown us through His son how to sacrifice, and the meaning of
grace. If we become imitators of our Savior then we are fulfilling God's will
and purpose for our lives. As imitators of our Savior Jesus Christ, God can
use us where ever we are and in what ever we are doing. Pray that God will
continue to make you more Christ like in your walk with Him. Look to His word
for guidance just as Joshua did even if sometimes it does not make sense. God
will take His word and use it in your life at times when you least expect it to
make His plan known to you. God bless you and may his plan for your life be
