“Do Your Part” by Kirk Hunt
So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets: and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.
Joshua 6:20 (KJV)
Israel did not have siege engines to destroy the walls or gates of Jericho. Digging under the walls, if possible, would have required far more than seven days. Only God could execute the miracle of knocking down Jericho’s walls with a trumpet choir.
God’s intervention didn’t excuse Israel from their part. The soldiers and inhabitants of the city remained after the walls fell. Even after the miracle, the hard and perilous fighting to capture the city remained.
It is a miracle that you are where you are. God has orchestrated events for you. He has maneuvered you, and those around you, to be in the right places at the right times.
All of that, so you can do your part. God has set you up for incredible blessing and prosperity. Now you have to get off the couch and do your part in His plan.
Think: God has set me up, so I can do my part.
Pray: “Father-God, help me to do my part in Your plan for my life..”
