God provides reminders and assurances to Joshua throughout this journey.

He provides them for us as well. His word is full of them.

In this context, God is preparing Joshua to receive an unusual battle plan.

Perhaps that plan sounded as “unconventional” to him as it does to us. But it was not the instructions that reassured him; it was God’s word.

For us, there will also be moments when we think twice about the Father’s command. We must not let human understanding rule.

Sometimes every piece of conventional (worldly) wisdom tells us we are fools. That is why we listen for the voice of God in the study of His word.

Our greatest privilege is the development of our relationship with the Savior, but that is also our greatest task.

We must work to value His desires and thoughts far above those of our world.

Joshua 6:1-2 “Now Jericho was straitly shut up because of the children of Israel: none went out, and none came in. And the LORD said unto Joshua, See, I have given into thine hand Jericho, and the king thereof, and the mighty men of valour.”
