Jericho's Walls


The Lord is my strength and my shield; My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped.


Psalm 28:7



Israel had finally crossed the Jordan. They had prepared themselves spiritually, and they had, followed God's orders to the letter. Now, they are ready to begin the conquest of the Promised Land. They are ready to claim for themselves the land that flowed with milk and honey. However, like most things in life that are worth having, it would not come cheap!


For Israel, Jericho would be a benchmark. It was at Jericho that they would flex their muscles and experience military victory and conquest. Israel's army had never before seen a fortified city like Jericho with its huge walls. However, they listened to the instructions they were given by the Lord, and they saw those massive walls fall down flat.


Just as Israel faced the formidable walls of Jericho, you and I face walls and obstacles in our lives too. We need to know how to overcome them as we march towards the victory. Joshua and his army discovered that the secret to victory, was trusting in the Lord.
