Reading along with us in Joshua? Here’s today’s reading:

Joshua 11 (ESV)

When Jabin, king of Hazor, heard of this, he sent to Jobab king of Madon, and to the king of Shimron, and to the king of Achshaph, and to the kings who were in the northern hill country, and in the Arabah south of Chinneroth, and in the lowland, and in Naphoth-dor on the west, to the Canaanites in the east and the west, the Amorites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, and the Jebusites in the hill country, and the Hivites under Hermon in the land of Mizpah. And they came out with all their troops, a great horde, in number like the sand that is on the seashore, with very many horses and chariots. And all these kings joined their forces and came and encamped together at the waters of Merom to fight against Israel......Continue Reading

  1. 15Just as the Lord had commanded Moses his servant, so Moses commanded Joshua, and so Joshua did. He left nothing undone of all that the Lord had commanded Moses.

  2. Spent quite a bit of time this morning re-reading Revelation chapter 20 and reviewing a book on Amillennialism (FYI: I’m not really seeing this as the correct interpretation….)

  3. I find Joshua’s courage amazing. Sometimes he goes into the battles with just God’s promise that everything will be okay. He’s not given some specific and full proof battle strategy or an all powerful weapon or an angels help; sometimes he is simply asked to not be afraid.
    Sometimes we aren’t given all the information in life. Sometimes all we are given is God asking us to trust him. And that is good enough for me.

  4. Amen Sarah and Amy…agreed!

    I guess these Northern kings didn’t get the memo, they didn’t learn the lesson that the Amorite kings should have taught them. You can’t beat these Israelites when God is with them! The comment about God hardening their hearts to get them to attack the Israelites is interesting. I don’t think this is saying God came up with the idea to attack. That was already in the kings’ minds. God just encouraged what was already there to accomplish His ends.
