Just Keep Turning the Pages

Remember when the Israelites were fearful to enter the Promised Land, “But the people there are powerful and the cities are fortified and very large.” (Numbers 13) Just keep turning the pages folks. Joshua chapter 2, (105 pages later) it turns out the people on the other side were more fearful, “I (Rahab) know that the LORD has given this land to you and that a great fear of you has fallen on us, so that all who live in this country are melting in fear because of you.” (v9)  The Israelites do crossover, and one of those very large cities, well, the walls just fell down!  (Kinda) May we walk courageously against who & what fears us more.   Our life is like a book, just keep turning the pages, because God says “I will be with you!”  Go God!
In Him, a page turner, DeDe (“Let us consider how we may spur one another on towards love & good deeds.” – Hebrews 10:24)
