Joel Osteen | 9th January 2022 Daily Devotional | Today’s Word for Sunday
TOPIC: Just a Crack
Seven priests will walk ahead of the Ark, each carrying a ram’s horn. On the seventh day you are to march around the town seven times, with the priests blowing the horns. – Joshua 6:4, NLT
Joel Osteen | 9th January 2022 Daily Devotional Message
The city of Jericho, which was surrounded by a huge stone wall so thick that chariots could ride on top, was the last city that stood between the people of Israel and the Promised Land. God told Joshua to have the people march around the walls once a day for six days and seven times on the seventh day. It wouldn’t have been so difficult if, while they were walking, they saw a little crack in the wall or a shift in the foundation, but nothing day after day. They didn’t understand it but just kept doing the right thing, and the final time around, the walls came tumbling down.
Too often we’ll stay in faith if we see the wall cracking. We’ll keep believing if our boss starts treating us better, if the promotion goes through, if things start to improve. You may not get a sign. You have to keep thanking God even though nothing is improving, keep walking by faith and not sight, and suddenly the walls will come down.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You that no obstacle is so high and wide that it can withstand Your touch. Thank You that to bring about Your promises in my life You have called me to walk by faith and not by sight. I will live with a sense of expectancy that You are about to do great things. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
