PSALM 77:13-14 NLT
13 O God, your ways are holy. Is there any god as mighty as you?
14 You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate your
awesome power among the nations.
DEUTERONOMY 26:8 NLT
8 So the LORD brought us out of Egypt with a strong hand
and powerful arm, with overwhelming terror, and with
miraculous signs and wonders.
PSALM 66:5 NLT
Come and see what our God has done, what awesome
miracles he performs for people!
1 Now the gates of Jericho were securely barred because of the Israelites. No
one went out and no one came in. 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
the whole army give a loud shout; then the wall of the city will collapse and the
army will go up, everyone straight in.”
6 So Joshua son of Nun called the priests and said to them, “Take up the ark of
the covenant of the LORD and have seven priests carry trumpets in front of it.”
7 And he ordered the army, “Advance! March around the city, with an armed
guard going ahead of the ark of the LORD.” 8 When Joshua had spoken to the
people, the seven priests carrying the seven trumpets before the LORD went
forward, blowing their trumpets, and the ark of the LORD’s covenant followed
them. 9 The armed guard marched ahead of the priests who blew the trumpets,
and the rear guard followed the ark. All this time the trumpets were sounding.
10 But Joshua had commanded the army, “Do not give a war cry, do not raise
your voices, do not say a word until the day I tell you to shout. Then shout!”
11 So he had the ark of the LORD carried around the city, circling it once. Then
the army returned to camp and spent the night there. 12 Joshua got up early the
next morning and the priests took up the ark of the LORD. 13 The seven priests
carrying the seven trumpets went forward, marching before the ark of the
LORD and blowing the trumpets. The armed men went ahead of them and the
rear guard followed the ark of the LORD, while the trumpets kept sounding.
14 So on the second day they marched around the city once and returned to the
camp. They did this for six days.
JOSHUA 6:15-16; 20
15 On the seventh day, they got up at daybreak and marched around the city
seven times in the same manner, except that on that day they circled the city
seven times. 16 The seventh time around, when the priests sounded the trumpet
blast, Joshua commanded the army, “Shout! For the LORD has given you the
city! 20 When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the
trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed; so everyone
charged straight in, and they took the city.
1. TAKE ON AN IMPOSSIBLE SITUATION.
15 As evening approached, the disciples came to him [Jesus]
and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late.
Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and
buy themselves some food.”
2. TRUST GOD’S WORD EVEN WHEN IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.
2 Then the LORD said to Joshua, “See, I have delivered Jericho into your
hands, along with its king and its fighting men.
