It is crucial that we let the Lord fight our battles for He is always victorious. In Joshua 10, there is an amazing account of Joshua praying and God responding to his prayer. Joshua prayed that the sun and moon would stand still as they battled the Amorites. God answered Joshua prayer and caused the sun moon to stop their movement. The sun and moon were two of Canaan’s most prominent gods. God’s victory over the Amorites revealed that their worship of the creation instead of the Creator was futile. The answer to Joshua prayer demonstrated that our sovereign God has all power over His creation.
We don’t understand how God accomplished this amazing miracle; but we do know that the Lord did this miracle in response to Joshua’s believing prayer. We are laborers together with God as He invites us to join Him in advancing His kingdom.
