Blog 19- Madame Guyon

"...and the wall fell down flat, so that people went up into the city every man straight before him and they captured the city." -Joshua 6:20

The passage I chose to pray over and read was Joshua 6. The Madam Guyon approach to reading this passage really allowed me to dig further into it. This story of the people of Isreal walking around a city for 7 days in order that the "walls may fall" is something I have always heard all growing up. In reading it deeper, I have realized this passage is so much more than a history lesson. There is great significance in it! It has taught me that the Lord asks us to do crazy things sometimes, yet they are apart of his plan! The Lord told his people to walk around Jericho 7 times for 7 days with 7 priests bearing 7 trumpets that they will blow on the final day. Then the Lord ordered them to shout with a great shout on the final day, and the walls came tumbling down!! How funny how the Lord works! Along with that, the Lord brings them a prositute to give them a safe place. How crazy he works all things together for good, even the craziest things he asks us to do!
