S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Afterward, Joshua read all the words of the law—the blessings and the curses—just as it is written in the Book of the Law.
Joshua had just finished doing what the Lord had originally told them to do. God had told the people of Israel to destroy everything in Jericho. Achan sinned and kept some for himself. Then Joshua sent a smaller army to destroy Ai, and Ai in turn destroyed them instead. When Joshua inquired of the Lord as to what had happened, God told him there was sin in the camp. Joshua discovered the sin of Achan and destroyed him and his family. Then the Lord told them to go and take Ai. Everything the Lord commanded Joshua and the people to do to Ai, they did. Once it was accomplished, God renewed His covenant with Israel, at which point Joshua stood and read ALL the laws of God from the Book of the Law.
This story is a great example of how important it is to always remind Yourself, Your family, and the people You serve what You Believe and what You feel got You to where You are today. Joshua knew it was his obedience to the law of the Lord that had gotten the Israelites to the Promised Land. When sin entered the nation, he cleaned up the sin and started over by reading the whole law to his people. Our mission today is to do what Joshua did. “Always REHEARSE What You Believe.”
Help me to always keep this principle in my heart and life. I want to “Always REHEARSE What I Believe!” Amen
