February 16 - dfree® Devotions for Financial Freedom

There has never been a day like it before or since, a day when the Lord listened to a human being. Surely the Lord was fighting for Israel. Joshua 10:14 NIV

Every so often we have a picture perfect day. It does not happen frequently. But from time to time we enjoy a day when it seems like nothing can go wrong and we can do no wrong. These are the days we wish would never end. And they are the days we assume will never be repeated again.

These days don't just happen. They representing the reaping of seeds that have been sown in the past - perhaps during an entire lifetime. And then God provides an unusual harvest. For Joshua the highlight of his day was commanding the sun and the moon to stand still. Of course science teaches that the sun always stands still. So if the sun was described as having stood still, what actually happened was that the miraculous victory was so profound that it felt as if the earth had stood still. All of this after Joshua won a battle that included five enemies that had coalesced against him.

What Joshua accomplished in defeating his adversaries was so amazing that his victory was described poetically as being like the sun and the moon actually pausing to honor the victory. That is a huge victory.

We often face formidable forces that do not want us to succeed. But even if they team up against you, God can organize a victory that can so tremendous that it will be like planets changing their behavior in agreement with God's blessing. That kind of victory does not happen every day. But when it does you should never forget it.

"God, I am ready for a day that is unlike anything I have ever experienced before. Amen."
