8 Lessons from Joshua 6

What can we learn from this passage in Joshua 6  about Jericho?

1.  If God is for us and with us, high walls and closed doors are not a problem. See also Acts 12:10

2. Things beyond reason and “impossible” require faith. See also John 8:56 and  Hebrews 11:1

3. Our responsibilities do not stop just because God has given a promise! (v2-3)

4. God often uses means to accomplish His plans that are laughable in the world’s eyes.  This keeps us from getting proud! (v 4)

5.  We must be “swift to hear, slow to speak”: James 1:19; 1 Peter 3:15 (v. 10).

6.  We need to be patient, not getting discouraged over the lack of success  (v. 15)

7.  Even when it looks like nothing is happening, we still need to rely on God’s faithfulness.  His promises are sure!  (v. 16).

8.  God uses the most unlikely and unusual things to bring about great things. (v. 20)
