Seeing Obstacles through God's Eyes

"...Hearts melted in fear and everyone's courage failed because of you, for the LORD your God is God in heaven above and on the earth below." ~ Joshua 2:11

Jericho was the first city that the Israelites needed to conquer in their quest for the land of Canaan. When Joshua sent a pair of spies to check it out, he probably didn't realize that he would receive a glimpse of God's impressive behind-the-scenes activity.
God wants us to look at every obstacle through the lens of His unlimited strength and resources. Anything that appears to block His plans is an opportunity for Him to demonstrate His sovereign power.
Just because we don't see anything happening, that doesn't mean He's inactive. Always remember that God is at work on the other side of our obstacles, arrang-ing the details and bringing His plans to fruition.
Sometimes we think we need to be involved in the solution to our problem, but God is not limited with regard to whom or what He can use to accomplish His will. In this case, He worked in the hearts of the enemy by instilling demoralizing fear.
For Christians, great obstacles need not be reasons for discouragement. Although much of the Lord's activity is silent and invisible, we can be sure He is dynamically working out His will for our lives. When the pieces of His plan are in place, He will move us on to victory. May his lOve and care be with you today and always. DocStem
